The Insane Clown Posse has been sued by their former publicist/attorney who claims her office was a hot bed of sexual abuse — which included dildos, vaginal devices and firearms.
The person behind the suit is Andrea Pellegrini — who claims she got the ax after reporting the alleged abuse to the honchos at ICP’s record label, Psychopathic Records.
According to the suit, filed in Michigan, Andrea details all sorts of crazy abuse — which allegedly began in 2009.
Here are the highlights:
— In 2011 … Violent J’s girlfriend Michelle Rapp glared at her in a hostile manner. When she complained to the president of the record label, he told her Michelle is “crazy” and might beat her up.
— In 2012 … on the way to lunch, Dirty Dan, a Psychopathic Records employee, told Andrea he had a “fat c**k” and that “he’d like to f**k her.”
— In July 2012, Andrea changed her Facebook status to single… and soon after, Dirty Dan presented her with a “clear dildo” in the office and told her that she’d probably need it because she’s single.
–Later that day …. Andrea says Dan gifted two other women in the office with “vagina tighteners”
— In August 2012 … she was told she couldn’t use the private bathrooms at the Gathering of the Juggalos and was forced to share restrooms that were “often full with naked male strangers.”
As for the guns — Andrea claims she was once asked to obtain illegal automatic weapons for a photo shoot.
Andrea is now suing for wrongful termination and wants compensation for suffering a slew of injuries … which include, “fright and shock” and “horror, outrage and indignity.”
I’m opposed to sexual harassment but I gotta go with the Juggalos on this one. Some jobs are by their very nature so bad that accepting the employment is a tacit waiver of some tort claims.
We’re not talking about quid pro quo sexual harassment – she was not required to provide sexual favors to keep her job. What we’re talking about here is a claim of hostile work environment.
Anyone who is familiar with ICP knows that the band is not only over-the-top sexist but they actually glory in misogyny. That’s when they aren’t singing about drugs and violence. How can someone go to work for them as a publicist and then act surprised that they turn out to be low-life scumbags?
