Hip-hop collective INSANE CLOWN POSSE are set to file legal action against the FBI after the law enforcement agency classified their followers as a gang.
The horrorcore ensemble announced that they would be seeking legal action against the Federal Bureau of Investigation at the 16th annual Gathering of the Juggalos.
Juggalo is a term that the band uses to label their loyal followers, who have now been designated alongside the likes of the Bloods, Crips and Aryan Brotherhood.
On Friday (August 10th), the group and its label, Psychopathic Records, launched the website juggalosfightback.com, on which Juggalos are encouraged share their stories of how their rights have been impacted on, merely for being fans of ICP.
A legal counsel has been set up by the group to go in tandem with the website, with attorney Howard Hertz of Hertz Schram PC, releasing a statement that says it will fight in the corner for any individual who has been hard done by the new ruling.
The statement says: "We are seeking individual Juggalos whose rights have been violated as a result of the mistaken belief that they are a 'gang member.' If you or someone you know has suffered any negative consequence with an employer, governmental representative, including law enforcement, border patrol, airline security, or other local, state or federal governmental agency or employee as a result of your status as a Juggalo, we want to know about it."
