What is a juggalo

Juggalo or Juggalette (the latter being feminine) is a name given to fans of Insane Clown Posse or any other Psychopathic Records hip hop group. Juggalos have developed their own idioms, slang, and characteristics.[1]
The term originated during a live performance by Insane Clown Posse. During the song "The Juggla", Joseph Bruce addressed the audience as Juggalos, and the positive response resulted in Bruce and Joseph Utsler using the word thereafter to refer to themselves and their friends, family, and fans, including other Psychopathic Records artists.[2] Juggalos have compared themselves to a family.[3][4] Common characteristics include drinking the inexpensive soft drink Faygo and wearing face paint.[3] They view the lyrics of Psychopathic Records artists (which are often violent in nature) as a catharsis for aggression.[5][6] Several well known figures have identified as Juggalos. These include professional wrestlers Kazushige Nosawa[7] and Vampiro,[8] and rappers Chuck D,[9] Kung Fu Vampir
e,[10]There have been numerous incidents of Juggalos committing violent acts including murder, kidnapping, assault, and arson[22][23][24][25] (though studies have noted a lack of evidence linking music with violence or crime).[26] Although Juggalos have denied any connection to gang activity[4], authorities have classified them as a gang in Utah,[27] Arizona,[4] Monroe County, Pennsylvania[28][29] and Modesto, California.[30] Because of this, some schools have prohibited students from wearing Insane Clown Posse related paraphernalia.[31][32]

As the public face of the Juggalo subculture, Psychopathic Records and Insane Clown Posse have repeatedly denounced violence within the fandom. Many of the crimes, including murders, have been labeled by Alex Abiss (former CEO of Psychopathic Records) as being just crazy individuals finding an excuse for their actions.[33]

MURS,[11] Coolio,[12] and Vanilla Ice.[13] According to Utsler, "[Juggalos come] from all walks of life -- from poverty, from rich, from all religions, all colors. [...] It doesn't matter if you're born with a silver spoon in your mouth, or a crack rock in your mouth."[14]
