You may have heard the (true) story about how the FBI labelled constituents of the Juggalo Nation as “gang members.” Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope were outraged at this and threatened to sue on the accusation that this label infringed on their constitutional rights of free speech. Last week, they did.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
“When the [gang] label first came out, I laughed at it. I had no idea how much it would effect us,” Violent J said during a press conference Wednesday at the ACLU office in Detroit. “Now it’s like a growing disease. It’s affecting everything ICP does. We’re going to fight this to the death, ’cause it’s not true. It’s stupid. It’s ridiculous.”
Please, please let this go all the way to the Supreme Court. I’d love to see J and Dope testify before The Supremes in full makeup.
