    I think you're going to be surprised
    I mean, I don't really see any reason why I would be.

    If the company has reasonable grounds to assume his been a creep, or that his had a history of mistreating con-goers and staff alike(the latter of which being some far more attestable), then I don't really see any fault with Funimation for firing the guy. People have been fired for fair less than an over decade long string of inappropriate conduct.

    Way to overestimate Mignogna's pull and fame.

    I deleted two posts where things got too heated and nasty.

    Please try to keep in mind that if this discussion is going to continue, it can't be a brawl.

    According to Bounding Into Comics (which is a mouthpiece for comicsgate, so take what they say with a heavy grain of salt) going off of a Nick Rekieta video (a man who's not a very reliable source) claims that Vic was under a contract with them. I'm not a con goer so I don't know if that is true. He also claims without evidence that Monica Rial and Chris Sabat are either threatening the head of the convention or threatening to not appear since Vic will be there.

    However, according to Renfamous (a regular con goer and cosplayer), the lawyer that Vic has retained has likely pressured KamehaCon into re-inviting him back. I can't pull up the tweet right now since I'm at a place that won't let me access twitter.

    I get the feeling this is his last appearance on KamehaCon (if the contract thing is true). Even though they've seemingly been quiet through this ordeal, Studiopolis and Bang Zoom! Entertainment have likely cut ties with Vic as well. They either haven't announced yet or are just not returning his calls. The only work he'll probably be able to get is doing direct-to-video Christian animation movies, I do remember that he was in one, I don't remember were I read it from though.

    From what I read like a month or so ago, Bang Zoom is still dubbing the remaining episodes of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable. Which in the series, Vic is voicing Rohan. I'm surpised that ether Studiopolis or Bang Zoom haven't anything about this situation.

    Things are getting extremely heated on the Dragonball forums in relation to this which makes sense since Vic's main claim to fame comes from voicing a character within that franchise, not to mention, the anime fandom of DB generally being bigger.

    I imagine it'll be hard for a lot of the guests to cancel with contracts involved, feel bad for them.
    Happy 20th anniversary, One Piece anime!

    Yeah, I agree. This entire situation is getting really heated for the Dragon Ball community. I do feel bad for the guests that can't cancel due to the contract stuff. I'm still surprised that they re-invited him.

    Monica cancel her appearnce at that convention that Vic got re-invited at.

    Dang... I won't be surprise if more people decide not to attend this convention due to this situation.

    Probably for the best in her case.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    And yes, I too have been watching this whole thing for about two months now and from what I'm seeing, the #IstandwithVic side has the upper hand in evidence due to them catching the #kickvic side fabricating evidence but despite that, this whole thing is getting worse and worse for both sides and it sucks that Kamehakon is dragged into it now since I was really looking forward to going to it again this year. :(

    That's definitely not good for the con nor the guests who are withdrawing from it just because of Vic.

    Yeah, this doesn't look good at all. Especially, if they go after the people that cancel their appearance.

    This is good news for the con. All the people pulling out don't have the same draw as Vic. The people have spoken and the outpour of support has shows that more people vastly support Vic. Also don't forget that one of these main accusers lied about getting swatted just weeks after the accusations came out.

    He must really need the money if he aims to force his way into an event where he is clearly not going to be a welcome presence. One would've assumed that ones first reaction would be to try to get out of the public eye after being fired for sex offenses
