The Upright Citizens Brigade was forced to cancel a show in New York this Saturday when the Insane Clown Posse went all corporate legal bullshit on them with a pussified cease and fucking desist order. The show, “The Gathering Of The Juggalos For A Mother Fucking Baby Funeral,” was structured as a fake send-off for an 8-month-old Juggalette. Here’s the description:
Juggalo Nation has recently suffered a terrible loss with the passing of Juggalo Jyna’s 8 month old daughter Skylie Monoxide Krawczyk. So we’re gonna honor this little Juggalette with the most Psychopathic baby funeral ever! We gonna have music, clowns, bereavement, stand up comedy, bar-b-que, scripture readings, hatchets, mother fuckin’ eulogizing, midgets wrestling retarded monkeys(*), and huge ass titties. So pour out a Faygo for this little dead ninjette and lets send her up to Shangri-la. This is the one baby funeral that you’ll probably get laid at. Whoop Whoop!
Services will be conducted by Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope(The Insane Clown Posse)
What’s that? No helicopter rides?! That’s punk-ass, bitchboy.
Joshing aside, UCB crossed a line when they stated that Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope would be conducting the services, since it would not be unreasonable for fans to take this as true. In addition to the cease & desist order, UCB said they feared that the show would attract actual Juggalos, who are not known for their rectitude when faced with entertainment they find less than edifying. Personally, I’m a little baffled and frankly kind of disgusted by the thought of using a baby’s funeral as the basis for a comedy show. I know it’s based on a real event but still, have some respect, man. Juggalo culture is a target-rich environment if ever there was one; there’s no need to resort to dead children.
