Surprise, surprise, surprise!
Guess what, folks? If you’re a chick working at the offices of Psychopathic Records — label home to Insane Clown Posse and its stable of subpar, schtick-reliant rappers — chances are you were treated like meat.
The label’s ex-publicist, Andrea Pellegrini, this week filed a lawsuit against the label, some staffers there and the two clowns — both literally and aesthetically — in that venereal band. The suit cites “a consistent culture of sexism and sexual harassment,” and accused them of wrongful termination and infliction of emotional stress, among other things.
The 17-page, 86-count formal complaint claims that during her four-year tenure as an ICP employee, she was subjected to “constant and pervasive harassment…including having a large dildo given to her while at work, and being presented with ‘vagina tighteners.’”
Oh come on. Who among us hasn’t been offered a genitalia-improving mechanism at work? Show of hands.
The suit further claims “[she was] mocked, belittled, and the subject of sexual advances from top level persons at ICP’s label, Psychopathic Records.”
In addition, Pellegrini was “asked to do illegal and/or unethical things at her job, including [being asked] to obtain automatic tommy-guns for a photo shoot.”
She claims she was let go after complaining about her treatment.
I believe every word of the suit, including the parts where Pellegrini claims to have been repeatedly called a “bitch” and a “cunt” by her supervisors, and a coworker named Dan “Dirty Dan” Diamond pulled her hair, told her he “had a fat cock,” and said he’d “like to fuck her.”
Damn. And you thought you worked with assholes.
The suit further outlines Pellegrini’s experience at 2012’s Gathering of the Juggalos, where she was apparently so frightened of thee animals, she had mace handy in case any got out of line.
This is why I don’t listen to ICP. That, and they’re the musical equivalent of eating cream corn. From someone’s asshole.
