Andrew W.K. Getting Booed at the Gathering of the Juggalos
As funny, sad and strange as Andy Kaufman.
I don't understand much of the guff that juggalos get. Much of the world likes to point and laugh, but much of what they do doesn't seem any sillier to me than painting yourself for a football game or listening to Avenged Sevenfold. I'm also happy that they've found friendship and community with the music that they enjoy. Still, I can't buy that "we're in a place where everyone's accepted" argument when I see something like this. The most that I can say for the juggalos here is that they gave Andrew W.K. a chance to earn an "A" in Performers Etiquette.
