Make A Wish, get a lap dance, only at the Gathering of the Juggalos

jugallettedanceWhile the annual Gathering of the Juggalos festival isn’t without its share of controversy, at least this story is positive. We think.

A young Insane Clown Posse fan actually had all of his wishes come true and then some at the festival, according The Village Voice. Thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, 17-year-old Cody Morin, who is need of a liver  transplant, got to meet ICP member Violent J backstage at the festival. Not only did he eat lunch with him, but a free lap dance was thrown in for good measure.

Thankfully the dance was not done by Violent J, but a member of ICP’s female entourage who heard about the boy’s story and decidedly thought he deserved a free, naked, lap dance.

The concert was Morin’s first, to which he attended with his mom, Darla Fletcher, sister and friend, after a long drive to Illinois from Vermont. The trip and backstage meeting was made possible by the Make-A-Wish Foundation, since Morin said his one wish would be to meet Insane Clown Posse.

According to The Voice, Morin is not eligible for a transplant after the ten surgeries he has faced. Morin’s mother will be donating a piece of her liver to her son and told the publication that she wouldn’t be drinking at the festival in preparation. Fletcher said her son has been denied access to a liver transplant because they were told he was not sick enough.
