Juggalo is NOT Another Word for ‘Fan’ | Brittany O’Mearica
Colin Waddell is a Juggalo. That is, Colin is a fan of the band called Insane Clown Posse (ICP). But being a Juggalo is different than being just a fan, he says; being a Juggalo is a way of life. “It’s about family, being accepted regardless of who you are.” Colin first joined the Juggalo family in 1999 after being introduced to the band by his friend. He reflects, “It just always seemed like that since my first show … regardless of who you are, if you’re a Juggalo, you’re family.” Using Colin as a lens into Juggalo life, we are able to get a glimpse of the Juggalo family, who Juggalos are, and the ways they are viewed by the media.
