DETROIT, MI – Creepy clown sightings have popped up all over America this Halloween season, taking over news headlines. As the recurrence of these clowns become more frequent, TIME decided to reach out to Hip Hop duo Insane Clown Posse to get their take on the growing trend.
Violent J, one-half of the pioneering Detroit rap group, blogged about the clown sightings for the publication and flipped the script; citing Big Government as being the real clowns wrecking havoc upon America. He says these are the facepaint-free clowns who are suppressing the rights of American citizens every day.
“These clowns threaten the very fabric on which our nation was supposedly founded upon—and for some fucking crazy-ass reason, they’re getting away with it,” Violent J, 44, wrote.
