It was later revealed that Disney was being criticized by the Southern Baptist Convention at the time because of Disney's promotion of "Gay Days" at Disneyland, in addition to presiding over the gay-themed television sitcom Ellen.The original lineup of Insane Clown Posse was John Rode (Kid Villain), John Utsler (John Kickjazz), Joe Bruce (Violent J) and Joey Utsler (Shaggy 2 Dope).John Rode left after Dog Beats was released in 1991, and John Utsler left before Carnival of Carnage was released in 1992.This effort led the group to Dallas, Texas, where it persuaded several music retail stores to stock the album. The group started recording its fourth studio album, The Great Milenko, in 1996, during which Disney requested that the tracks "The Neden Game", "Under the Moon", and "Boogie Woogie Wu" be removed.Disney also asked that the lyrics of other tracks be changed, threatening to not release the album otherwise.
