Although most Juggalos would be honored to be personally injured by a member of the Insane Clown Posse, it appears as if one opportunist has taken it upon himself to file a lawsuit against the duo after he claims that he was hit in the eye with a bottle thrown by one of the clowns, during a 2007 concert, sustaining a serious eye injury.
John Antonelli, who was at an Insane Clown Posse concert at Playmakers in Fargo, N.D., in June of 2007, claims that an unopened plastic bottle of Faygo thrown into the crowd by Violent J during the performance caused a fracture in the orbital rim of his right eye socket when it struck him in the face. He is seeking total damages of $50,000, with both the Insane Clown Posse and the venue listed as defendants, citing that the venue’s security failed to sufficiently control the performers from committing unsafe acts. Bullshit.
The duo regularly performs stupid antics on-stage during their shows, some of which revolve around Faygo soda, which is produced in Detroit, the city from which they originate as well. Over the years, the brand has become an Insane Clown Posse trademark, taking off after an early performance saw Violent J toss an opened bottle of the soft drink at group of hecklers, and later being referenced in songs. It has since become a tradition for Juggalo choads to bask in the moment of being showered by Faygo at Insane Clown Posse shows. At some shows (where allowed) and group-0related events, said choads regularly bring bottles to shows to drink and pour all over each other in an orgy of high-fructose corn syrup and idiocy. Many people outside of the Midwest only know the brand because of the group, though the company makes it a point to try and distance itself from the clowns. No word on what flavor it was that hit Antonelli in the face, though an eyewitness told a reporter for The Saturday Swindle Sheet, in an EXCLUSIVE interview, on condition of anonymity, that it was either orange or Mango Tango.
