Insane Clown Posse is not taking kindly to its fans being designated a gang by the FBI.

The hip-hop duo is suing the government for last month’s labeling of its followers (collectively the Juggalos) as a “loosely-organized hybrid gang,” according to band’s website.

ICP filed a Freedom of Information Act request demanding the FBI release the information that the organization to label their fans “a criminal organization formed on the street.”

Since there was no response, the band’s reps filed a lawsuit.


The suit accuses the FBI of “failure to produce any documentary evidence in support of the FBI’s classification of the groups’ fan base” in its annual National Gang Threat Assessment report.

Said report likened the Juggalos to the MS-13, Crips and Bloods. It also revealed that Juggalos have infiltrated the U.S. military and use social networking “to communicate and expand.”

ICP rapper Shaggy 2 Dope told the Village Voice:

“You’re trying to grow love in your country and s–t. Then the head of your country, the FBI, just turns around and f–king kicks you in the nuts. How are you supposed to respond to that?”

Filing a giant ass lawsuit apparently.

In more uplifting news, you gotta see ICP break down “Call Me Maybe”.
