Alright, since this is affecting some of the threads, I figured I’d make an entirely new thread to talk about recent sexual harassment allegations against Vic Mignogna (English voice of Broly, Edward Elric, and Crow).

Special thanks to Icey Wicey for the idea.

It is affecting some threads?
I remember posting something about this case in the Anime thread, but it was a topic that most just jumped out.

Since thread just came up. Here’s something to take into mind

Anime News Network Editor-At-Large Mike Toole Calls YouTube Channels Clownfish TV and Lost Pause “Nazis” Over Vic Mignogna Videos

1, ANN has been spear-heading this whole thing.

2, the Editor is slandering others for not putting his perfered spin on it.

2, Back in 2011 didn’t seem to care about the accusations.
@spacetart Oh, I’m sure Vic is fine. Seemingly every single bad story about him is secondhand. I just think the phenomenon is funny.

So why now all of a sudden are they "damning evidence"?

@LeoNero
I’ve seen people mocking this.

Since he was crying it shows guilt, but If he didn’t cry they’d say it shows guilt.

They just want him to be guilty. They don’t want evidence examined thoroughly, they don’t want people to stand under oath. They already made up their mind.

Just like Hardwick, Jimmy Saville and even Fatty Arbuckle from the 1920’s was victim of this.

@E-123
Which in ANN’s case, they did and got caught.

I believe they removed several photos from the original.

Wait, all of that was fake?
I remember reading a whole page about all the cases about girls from cons having "awkward" moments with him during photo setions, including one about a jew that claimed that Vic offended him because his religion.

I think there’s one or two I don’t know, I just saw in a vid after someone exposed that one was used in a fake manner, many seemed gone.

Now there’s just one saying how "creeped out" she felt. Which begs the question; Why don’t you just say something? Saying nothing until years after just makes it seem like it’s just jumping on a train of being against for some reason. Like they’re not really fans, just opportunists, which I have seen many times.

It happens to celebrities, because they try to use that as leverage for personal or monetary gain. I know some people don’t want me saying it, but these types of scummy people exist. They say; "It harms real victims" No, what harms real victims is allowing all these fake one to continue and being used. Then when something actually does happen, as I’ve seen it said they say "I’m afraid to be called the next Jackie"

If anyone remember the "Jackie" story; it was the Rolling stones journalist looking for a story about "rape on campus" and when published lives of quite a few men were put in jeopardy all because someone went looking for something, and it was too good to pass up.

The problem is the lack of evidence. Especially these incidents allegedly took place at conventions. If that is he case there should be MOUNTAINS of video and photographic evidence to show how scummy he is. But we haven’t seen any. ONLY a hashtag that is pushing allegations from multiple girls that are YEARS old.

This shit is pissing me off to no end. Because look at what is going on with him because of these accusations. Any of the people here on this site that have the mindset of "listen and believe" are my fucking enemy. Period. I don’t give a FUCK about your politics! If you have this mindset you are my enemy period. No and’s if’s or but’s. Because you will stoop so LOW as to take a persons word without any evidence and automatically think the accused is guilty.

I think everyone here already read all the post from Anime News Network about this case:

Here is the link

It also includes the one about the religion dude and one about a girl that Vic shared his phone number.

How did she get his number without a parent or guardian seeing this? Do cons just have underage kids running around unattended?

And these names "J" "Azure" I think we’ve had enough anonymous accusations to make suspect of that.

Even the stories don’t add up as after there didn’t appear to be any taking advantage of, no "he wanted pictures" or anything. They all seemed to have volunteered.

Usually in stuff like this the true nature comes out, since they believe it’s private, yet I don’t see anything damning.

The homophobia thing is the most weakest. "Banned hentai" "NO posting adult content" Okay, so you’re mad he had a Yahoo group where there was young fan and there was no porn. that doesn’t sounds like a predator grooming girls to me, ususally they flood them with it to desensitize when he decides to take advantage.

That's him, officer
This whole thing is damning. I was averse to this whole thing, at first, thinking this would be another iconic celebrity who sunk low, but a small part of me hopes that he’s innocent; that something good would come of all this.

That gif is sadder in hindsight…

Normally when these kind of controversies start popping up, I usually go to see what the people close to the person in the middle of it all feel. When James Gunn’s tweets popped up, many of his co-workers came out in defense of Gunn and tried everything they could to keep him around, with Batista himself cutting ties with Disney after Guardians 3 is over. When rumors began to surface that Jason David Frank was involved in the harassment David Yost received when working on Power Rangers, Yost himself came out and debunked those rumors and reiterating that they are friends

The fact that most of Micnogna’s peers, people who’ve worked with him for years, have either been silent on this whole debacle or have both favored supporting the victims and have begun calling him out themselves as well gives a lot of credibility to the accusations, and really drives that he wasn’t a very pleasant person to be around
