Trump supporters got compared to Juggalos, and the internet isn’t having it
It's a new day which means there's a new topic being debated online. This week, it looks like the internet is defending Juggalos for a reason that might surprise you.
Tuesday, Jan. 19 marks Donald Trump's last full day as President before Joe Biden's inauguration. So far, it appears Trump is spending his final hours reportedly pardoning over 100 people including Tiger King star Joe Exotic and rapper Lil Wayne.
With the final minutes of the Trump Administration ticking away, many are reflecting back on the past four years in America. This week, the Atlantic published an article about Donald Trump's presidency and everything that has transpired. However, it looks like the article isn't going down too well within the Juggalo community.
Graeme Wood, the author of the article, is catching the internet's attention for all of the wrong reasons. In the article, Wood compares the Trump Administration to Insane Clown Posse before saying that Trump supporters carried out the presidential term in "Juggalo style." Wood also seemingly compares the breach of the U.S. Capitol to what would be seen at a Juggalo gathering.
Following the publishing of the article, the internet is actually rallying behind Juggalos. Reporters and onlookers are coming together to disprove the Juggalo depiction mentioned in the article. The flood of tweets on Tuesday eventually caused "Juggalos" to trend on Twitter.
Various tweets note that the Juggalo community is often misrepresented. In fact, those in the community are reportedly known for their kindness, inclusiveness and outspokenness towards their disapproval of Trump.I don’t know how anyone could write something so wrong about Juggalos. Juggalos are notably a very kind, inclusive community. So many of their members have been outspoken against Trump. This is the exact opposite of what the broader Juggalo community stands for."
One reporter even noted that covering a Juggalo protest was one of the most pleasant experiences they've had on the job.
Another onlooker also says that a recent Juggalo gathering was the complete opposite of the U.S. Capitol riots in which the Atlantic article compares them to.
At this time, Graeme Wood has not responded to the comments received from the Atlantic article.
