Insane Clown Posse Discuss Why They Called For A ‘Beatdown’ On Dahvie Vanity With Ex-‘To Catch A Predator’ Host Chris Hansen


Insane Clown Posse‘s Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope appeared on ‘Have A Seat With Chris Hansen‘ to discuss former Blood On The Dance Floor frontman Jesus “Dahvie Vanity” Torres. Insane Clown Posse recently declared Vanity ‘Juggalo Enemy Number 1’, encouraging their juggalo fanbase to inflict violence against him. Vanity‘s alleged crimes include allegations of rape and sexual misconduct from over twenty women, dating back over a decade.

Blood On The Dance Floor‘s music was pulled from streaming outlets Spotify and Google Play in the spring of 2019 for violating ‘hate content policies’, months after two reports were published on the allegations made against Vanity. The band’s music does remain available on Apple Music however.

Local law authorities have been involved with several of the allegations made against Vanity over the years and the FBI are said to be currently investigating him for the allegations.

Chris Hansen, who formerly hosted the the reality show ‘To Catch A Predator‘, which ensnared various alleged sexual predators, has been investigating the claims made against Vanity across the past several months. To that end he has been meeting with alleged victims, insiders musicians and more.

One of Vanity‘s alleged victims, Mal Levy also appeared on this newest episode, stating that she was around 15-years-old at the time she was allegedly drugged and sexually assaulted by Vanity. She further stated that while she don’t advocate for violence against him, Insane Clown Posse‘s post regarding Vanity saw several more alleged victims come forward.

Speaking to Hansen about why they decided to call out Vanity, Violent J commented:

“What it was about this particular guy, this particular investigation, is of course it hit so close to home for us. Because technically this guy does the exact same for a living [as we do]… It’s a rare profession, it’s not like everybody does this, it’s a rare job…. It’s a unique job

So this guy is doing exactly what we do, to the point where we have clown paint on and we have certain things that people would call our gimmick… And Dahvie Vanity, his gimmick would be the crazy hair, the wigs you know… Trying to act crazy on stage, and that’s his gimmick.”

When asked if they knew Vanity prior or had any association with him, Shaggy 2 Dope responded:

“No, what you’ve got to understand is this man, our whole career we’ve been totally against any kind of pedophiling or touching children, loudly speaking about it our whole career, in our music. Not just outspoken about it in interviews, but in songs, in our music.

It goes back to the beginning of our music career. So obviously when we found out about Dahvie, Dahvie, the pedophile boy. We couldn’t just sit there and not say nothing. It’s like come on man, he’s doing what we’re doing… And I can’t understand the concept of molesting kids at all, it doesn’t enter my mind. But yeah, he’s doing what we’re doing, but taking advantage of the situation and getting with this little girls. It’s literally insane.”

Violent J:

“He was literally on tour molesting kids on a molestation tour!”

J later continued:

“…It almost appears like he created the entire band [Blood On The Dance Floor] for the purpose…” Shaggy 2 Dope stepped in to say: “For the sole purpose of molesting young girls.”

Speaking later on why they asked for such extreme measures be taken towards Vanity, Violent J offered:

“What the hell is going on? What is going on right now? Ten years? Ten years? This guy? He got arrested three times… Got arrested and let off like three times? When? When then? He’s still actively doing it right now. When do we get to say let’s get him and take him down. When is it okay? He’s actively hurting people.”

Levy responded that she doesn’t want to see him severely injured, rather, she would like to see him serve proper justice for his alleged crimes:

“We definitely want him to go to jail and have to be there for the rest of his life and have to just be in there wigless and lame as shit and then made somebody’s bitch. For the first-time ever, it’s under FBI investigation, finally.

And that is why it’s different now. Beforehand, you know, he has gone to jail. He’s been arrested. Several girls have filed reports—or tried to but law enforcement failed them terribly back in the day…”

Later, Violent J offered:

“I know it might have been the smartest thing to do is put a tweet out and say ‘juggalos you know what to do, pick up something heavy and issue a beatdown’. That may not have been the smartest way to do it. But my question is. What do we do when there’s an active, unconvicted, real human being monster.

[A] hunchback, dragging a foot, wings, horns—all of that—walking around in public right now. Right now. That we all know about. We all know about it. And he’s just out here, what we do do? You just gonna actually let him walk by you? this creature from hell? What do you do?”

After further discussion with Levy, Violent J ultimately stated of extreme violence being committed against Vanity, “I don’t want him to die, let me make that clear. I don’t want him to die at all. Just by chance there’s no hell, that would be way too easy of him getting off.”
