JUGGALOS 4 LIFE!
A SINCERE APOLOGY TO INSANE CLOWN POSSE FANS

 

In my 100 Annoying Things of 2003 list (see #46), I made fun of Insane Clown Posse and their fans, known as Juggalos.  I have to say that I was completely unprepared for the response I was about to receive.  To say that Juggalos love ICP is an understatement.  But while I originally cast these passionate fans off as the retarded underbelly of society, I was struck by the thought provoking, intelligent, and extremely well written emails I got from Juggalos across the world.  I apologize sincerely for offending anyone, and I hope these emails serve as a testament to the creative genius behind this remarkable duo and their fans.  I'll just let the messages speak for themselves, and thanks to juggalette1956@aol.com for submitting the artwork used in this article.

yea, i would like to say, that everything at the gay website that u established was ok, but when you said somethin about insane clown posse, im sorry, but you insuletd me. Your little message about ICP was put on the website faygoluvers.net you know, ur about annoying, #1 annoyin thing, a total dick head who wants to try an make people laugh, but isnt one bit of being funny. yea dont do that shit, hopefully icp wont see that, they will probably not care because they are the most hated band in the world, but i do have to say, that for someone who wants to make fun of insane clown posse, its about time that people realize that insane clown posse isnt bad, but its little pricks like you, that want them to feel bad about being around. well the family only has one thing to say to you, an the rest of the bigot fucks in the world, FUCK YOU l8er ha8er

Hi,

My Name is Andrew, and I'm one of those "retarded" Juggalos, you seem to loath so much. I have 2 part time jobs, an OAC dipolimia, and am half through college.

I've been a fan of ICP, and psycopathics records for years, and you would be hard put not to find some sign or symbol of the clowns on my body at any given point. As far as ICP being retarded, I question how familair you are with them or there music outside of maybe "Homiez", or a couple tracks off "The Great Milnko". Have you heard Zug Izland's debute album, Crack Tiles? You know who wrote those lyrics? Violent J! ICP has put out the longest series of concepts albums I've ever heard, signed some ground breaking artists, and completly rocked any show I've been too. Listen, I don't want you to change your mind on ICP. In fact if I ever saw a hater change too a Jugahoe I would call them out on it so quick, there neck would snap when there head spins. Frankley you can keep hating and be an anti-Juggalo, but don't expect that a few retards like me, won't disagree with you.

Recently i viewed your "100 worst things of 2003" and wow, who makes up the "worst things"? i mean instead of saying "100 worst things of 2003" you should say "100 worst things of 2003 according to our crappy critics that think they actually know whut there talking about". Its your opinion, and my opinion of your opinion says you guys are no talent wannabe's, you want to be like some other big site when in reality your nothing so you pick on 100 people and shows. Theres so many people or things on your list that are very popular but im not even gonna spend time ranting on about my own opinions and views like you did. Anyways tell the people that created that to get lives, seriously i think you could come up with something better than your own crappy opinions, you know you guys love micheal anways right? You missed the number one worst thing of 2003 by the way, it should have been RetroCrush.com.

First off I would like to say that I have no intent of being rude or insulting in this email just that I would like to submit to you a few thoughts and questions and I sincerely hope that you take the time to read this.

So you don't like I.C.P. uh? Tell me how many of their albums or songs have you listened to? Can you even name of of their albums or songs? I doubt it. I assume your a bit on the old side right. And I suppose you look at I.C.P. and say 'oh thats retarded, guys in clown paint rapping about killing people and throwing faygo all over people at their concerts.' right? And I'll admit it is on the unusual side but whats wrong with that? I'm currently 18, about to turn 19. I started listening to I.C.P. when I was about 10 or 11. Now I don't know about you and how you were raised but I had little to no friends threw my entire live until the light of the Dark Carnival shed upon my life. Because of I.C.P. I have friends that I would die for. I've been walking threw my local mall and saw a ninja with a Riddlebox(one of I.C.P.'s albums) tshirt on getting beat on by about 5 jock type ninjas. And I tell you now I didn't even think twice about jumping in thare and beating them du! des asses, just to have another Juggalo's back. Turns out that he was a Juggalo brother and me and him are still tight today. I've been in the same position and ninjas jump in and they got my back. That's what being a Juggalo is. It's like having thousands of brothers, sisters, and best friends that you meet on a daily basis.

If I.C.P. is so horrible why is it that they have been around and putting out the flavor for over 10 years now? They have no MTV play, no radio play, and no mainstream help. They put themselves on the map and they did what they wanted. I sit here now and tell you that I have never felt better or more loved than last July at The Gathering of the Juggalos. 5,000+ ninjas and I felt like I knew each and every one of them and I wasn't afraid to be myself. I've never laughed harder than when I watch Big Money Hu$tla$(I.C.P.'s movie). And I never wanted to do high flying acts of amazement like I do when I watch JCW(I.C.P.'s wrestling federation).

As I sit here, listening to Shangri-La, and reflecting upon my life with the Dark Carnival I'm actually bringing up tears man. I.C.P. has been such a major part of my life for so long I can't imagine what I would have become without them. I.C.P. has given me a home, hope, and a family.

And try saying what you said about ICP and Juggalos to the next Juggalo you see. I fucking dare you, bitch. I have no respect for people like you.

HOW THE FUCK CAN YOU SAY THAT YOU KNOW ANY JUGGALOS, AND WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU TO JUDGE A GROUP OF PEOPLE AND THEIR INTELLIGENCE..... YOU ARE FUCKING IGNORANT. CALLING JUGGALOS UNINTELLIGENT IS JUST ABOUT AS STUPID AS CALLING ANY OTHER "GROUP OF PEOPLE WITH THE SAME INTEREST IN MUSIC" UNINTELLIGENT. HOW ABOUT FUCKING COUNTRY MUSIC AND THEIR FOLLOWERS, SURE THEY ARE ALL IMBRED, FUCKING RACIST, PUNK ASS BIGOT, TRASHY WHITE FOLKS, BUT I CAN NOT JUDGE THEIR INTELLIGENCE BECAUSE AS A GROUP, SURE THEY ALL LIKE COUNTRY, BUT THEY EACH HAVE THEIR OWN INDIVIDUAL ACCADEMIC ACCOMPLISHMENTS AS PEOPLE...... SO IF YOU HAVE THE BALLS TO EVEN HAVE READ THIS FAR..............FUCK YOU, KEEP YOUR OPPINIONS ABOUT PEOPLE TO YOURSELF, AND SUCK A DICK...... THAT IS ALL. AND FROM ONE JUGGALO WHO IS NOT VOID OF INTELLIGENCE,
I'M OUT Y'ALL!!

CLOWN LUV AND JUGGALOS TIL DEATH.......

PS- YOU SAY ANY SHIT LIKE YOU POSTED ON YOUR WEBSITE TO A JUGGALO'S FACE.... AND YOU'D GET YA FUCKIN' GRILL BUSTED.........don't say i didn't warn you...... :)

Hello, I liked your little list except for the one you talked about ICP and The Juggalos. Do not start a war with the juggalos. We will make you like a living hell. Why don't you talk shit about that asshole Eminem? Because 10 years from now The Insane Clown Posse will still be around and Slim Shady will be passed out on the floor of some fuckin crack house.

Are you a comedian or something do you open, feature or headline at any comedy clubs? Or do you just talk shit on the internet?

So fuck you,

Juggalos 4 life


I stand corrected, Juggalos.  Godspeed you brilliant diamonds of joy.  You bring hope for the future, indeed!

NOTE:  These responses are all the emails received from ICP fans during Jan 26th through Jan 29th.  No email was left out, so those of you who think I only put the "intelligent" ones up here are sadly mistaken.
