As previously reported, Insane Clown Posse recently declared Blood On The Dance Floor’s Dahvie Vanity as “Juggalo Enemy Number 1” and asked their fans to beat him down after they found out about the disturbing rape and sexual misconduct allegations against him. Now, during an appearance on “Have A Seat With Chris Hansen,” Insane Clown Posse‘s Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope further discussed their decision to take on Vanity.
Violent J said the following:
“What it was about this particular guy, this particular investigation, is of course it hit so close to home for us. Because technically this guy does the exact same for a living [as we do]… It’s a rare profession, it’s not like everybody does this, it’s a rare job…. It’s a unique job
So this guy is doing exactly what we do, to the point where we have clown paint on and we have certain things that people would call our gimmick… And Dahvie Vanity, his gimmick would be the crazy hair, the wigs you know… Trying to act crazy on stage, and that’s his gimmick.”
Shaggy 2 Dope continued after being asked if they knew Vanity before calling him out:
“No, what you’ve got to understand is this man, our whole career we’ve been totally against any kind of pedophiling or touching children, loudly speaking about it our whole career, in our music. Not just outspoken about it in interviews, but in songs, in our music.
It goes back to the beginning of our music career. So obviously when we found out about Dahvie, Dahvie, the pedophile boy. We couldn’t just sit there and not say nothing. It’s like come on man, he’s doing what we’re doing… And I can’t understand the concept of molesting kids at all, it doesn’t enter my mind. But yeah, he’s doing what we’re doing, but taking advantage of the situation and getting with this little girls. It’s literally insane.”
Violent J went on to say that Vanity “was literally on tour molesting kids on a molestation tour!” He later added that “it almost appears like he created the entire band for the purpose…” before Shaggy 2 Dope chimed in with: “For the sole purpose of molesting young girls.”
Violent J also had the following to say when asked why they told the Juggalos to be beat Vanity down:
“What the hell is going on? What is going on right now? Ten years? Ten years? This guy? He got arrested three times… Got arrested and let off like three times? When? When then? He’s still actively doing it right now. When do we get to say let’s get him and take him down. When is it okay? He’s actively hurting people.”
One of Vanity’s alleged victims, Mal Levy, who said she was sexually assaulted when she was only 15, was also involved in the chat and responded by saying she would rather see him serve proper justice:
“We definitely want him to go to jail and have to be there for the rest of his life and have to just be in there wigless and lame as shit and then made somebody’s bitch. For the first-time ever, it’s under FBI investigation, finally.
And that is why it’s different now. Beforehand, you know, he has gone to jail. He’s been arrested. Several girls have filed reports—or tried to but law enforcement failed them terribly back in the day…”
Violent J later continued:
“I know it might have been the smartest thing to do is put a tweet out and say ‘juggalos you know what to do, pick up something heavy and issue a beatdown’. That may not have been the smartest way to do it. But my question is. What do we do when there’s an active, unconvicted, real human being monster.
[A] hunchback, dragging a foot, wings, horns—all of that—walking around in public right now. Right now. That we all know about. We all know about it. And he’s just out here, what we do do? You just gonna actually let him walk by you? this creature from hell? What do you do?”
He also added:
“I don’t want him to die, let me make that clear. I don’t want him to die at all. Just by chance there’s no hell, that would be way too easy of him getting off.”
