It’s an annual tradition to tag the Port-a-Potties and shower trailers at the Gathering of the Juggalos. This year was no different, except that the graffiti’s message shifted from its usual slate of insular rallying cries (“Whoop Whoop,” “Down With the Clown,” etc.) to focus on this past year’s major development: the FBI’s insistence that Juggalos are a national ‘gang’ who pose a security threat to this nation. Insane Clown Posse begs to differ, announcing on Friday they will challenge this gang-list distinction in court; as Shaggy 2 Dope told us “We’re doing the American thing–we’re suing.” Juggalos don’t agree either, and have a point: who’s really the gang here?
Please enjoy the rest of this weekend’s FBI-related graffiti below. Also, “Fuck the FBI” accented with a smiley face? Essential Juggalo.
