Insane Clown Posse Apologizes To Method Man For Juggalo Assault
Violent J tells the Village Voice he apologized to Method Man “because one asshole made the Juggalos look bad.”
The Insane Clown Posse can’t quite figure out why Vanilla Ice and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony get great crowd responses during their Gathering of the Juggalos events while Too Short and Method Man get booed and sometimes even assaulted.
“It’s hit or miss,” Violent J told Camille Dodero of the Village Voice. “Some artists go up there and seem to not have a clue [about Juggalos]. And that insults Juggalos, I think! When they’re at their own festival and the artists don’t have a clue.”
ICP said that, by and large, Juggalos were awesome, but one person showed a decidedly different side when he threw a beer can at Method Man and almost knocked the rapper unconscious during an August performance. The assault resulted in a bloody gash on Method Man’s face and possible legal action.
“I said, ‘I’m sorry we didn’t come over and give you a quick briefing on what’s up,'” Violent J explained. “But we really honestly assumed they knew and they didn’t — and that’s unfortunate because one asshole made the Juggalos look bad. [Method Man] told me it almost knocked him unconscious it hit him so hard. And that’s fucked. I don’t want him to think that’s all Juggalos. We all didn’t throw that.”
An explanation of the Juggalo’s assault on Tila Tequila, and how Psychopathic Records lost roughly $15,000 during this year’s Gathering, are available in the full Village Voice interview.
