Reader: Westword's Editor Is Obviously a Juggalo

Last Monday night, Insane Clown Posse performed at the Boulder Theater, spraying the walls with Faygo and bringing out fashionable juggalos of all stripes, polka dots, rubber noses and face tats, too. And as with all things juggalo-related, Westword took notice.

Despite a review that was lukewarm about the horrorcore duo and hot about the scene, several readers suggested that Westword has been drinking too much Faygo lately.

Alex writes:
It's interesting they don't have a Faygo dispensary near Westword office. Maybe "IT" is controlling them?
Tarasa adds:

Zero way in hell that the editor of Westword isn't a juggalo.
Jim weighs in:

ICP gotta be paying Westword for the nonstop coverage.
While you can rest assured we're not on any juggalo's dime and our editor of forty years has been running this magazine since Violent J was five, we have to admit we enjoy the juggalo beat. Here's some of our recent coverage of the scene:

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
