[This post is lengthy.] My entire life I wanted to do two things: sail a ship and be a voice actor. Voice-over was my passion; I lived it and breathed it. However, in early 2016, actors and vo actors became aggressive and started attacking fans that did not think the same way they did. They boycotted the "bigots' dollar," and blackballed anyone who wasn't part of their cult: the hivemind of the Bay Area. This deterred me from perusing this path when I was actually considering moving to So.Cal. I'm glad I never did. Vic Mignogna, profoundly recognized voice actor (shown above as Broly from Dragon Ball), has been forcibly removed from employment because of false allegations of sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior. His crime? He hugged a fan. Yes, he hugged someone. Said fan went to the internet (not authorities) and complained. Like clockwork, the sludge that is the entertainment industry jumped on this, as several female vo actors came forward. Their only evidence? Blatantly photoshopped pictures that have been in fact proven to be fake. Although no evidence exists to support these slanderous and libellous claims, Vic was fired from both Funimation and Rooster Teeth, two animation giants. No evidence, no investigation, no trial, and no jury. So yeah. This is the state of entertainment and media today, and it's sad.
Funimation and Rooster Teeth should be ashamed of how they acted. As for me, I stand with Vic. #istandwithvic #vic #vicmignogna #vo #voiceover #voiceactors #animation #anime #funimation #roosterteeth #broly #dragonballsuperbroly #dragonball #dragonballz #dragonballsuper #geeksandgamers #thequartering
