Why Do People Mock Juggalos?

So tonight I saw this documentary titled "American Juggalo," which takes a look at the "subculture of Juggalos" by attending the Insane Clown Posse's yearly "Gathering of the Juggalos" event.  The whole point was to go and let the Juggalos speak for themselves, since they are often mocked, misunderstood, whatever.  For those of you who are fortunate enough to NOT know what a "Juggalo" is, it is the name for the fans or "family" as they call themselves of the Insane Clown Posse.

Going back to 2 years ago, our very own site even listed Juggalos as the number 1 most annoyingly idiotic people on the planet.  I don't even know what to say about them, the documentary says it all.  It seems they are trying to be the new age Woodstock, with free love, drugs, and alcohol flowing which makes them "SUPER bad asses."  It also seems like they are outcasts that no one else likes, so they just band together and say "fuck the world" and they think that somehow makes them cool.  And the women?  Yikes.  Somehow talking trashy, looking trashy, and in some cases just being totally naked right out in the open makes them "free."  Seems like "Trashstock" or "Gathering of the Wanna-Be Gangstas" would be a more fitting name for this event.

Now don't get me wrong, I think the Insane Clown Posse themselves are smart.  They created characters that were appealing, gained a huge following, and make all kinds of money.  Just because they draw this group of hillbilly/wannabe gangsta outcast fans doesn't mean they won't take their money.  Somehow I highly doubt Shaggy 2 Dope or Violent J would ever hang with any of these "people," and maybe after viewing "American Juggalo" below, you will see WHY people mock them.
