AGAIN its not someone
it’s a lot of SOMEONES
Common sense should come into play here.
Do you honestly think this many women all just have it out for Vic? And have had it for him for years? It’s just a coincidence that all these women with no relation to each other picked the same z-list celebrity to make up the same “he was a creep to me” line?
I’ve already discussed this. If this was just one or two random someones coming out with a story of their experience with him then of course some level of skepticism is reasonable. But this many for this long? I’m sorry there comes a point where your skepticism isn’t being reasonable its being willfully ignorant and obtuse.
He's right, if this was just one or two people crawling out the wood work then yes it would be reasonable to think their just doing it for attention. But again by what I've seen we have multiple people coming forward to speak about events that go back years.
For this to have zero credibility it would mean there is a massive sting operation against Vic, who as many point out is just some voice actor. What could anyone hope gain from this elaborate set up?
First off I want to say the number of allegations is concerning, and does lead me to believe their is a good chance he has done wrong.
However I wan't to bring up an argument on why these people may be making these claims even if they aren't completely true. They may be thinking they are doing justice. They heard other accusations, and they have the mentality to always believe in the victim, so they go and try to look for more examples to try and prove it so the justice they want gets served. And when you have people looking for evidence to prove their point they come across a lot of pictures and videos of him being "close" with his fans, which adds fuel to the fire. There was one video I saw where it had someone posting her getting hugged from behind by Vic, admitting she didn't feel like anything was wrong at the time, but said looking back at on it she felt he was basically humping her leg and squeezing her too tight (and from the pic I saw I would have to disagree with the claim, though he was closer than I would be with a stranger). People like to be a part of a movement and they get a kind of mob mentality. They also like to see all the likes, retweets, and attention they get.
Neil Kaplan, another voice actor, came out and said he never liked Vic and complained how he sat on his shoulders at a convention, but when you actually look at the video itself he seems to be fine with it.
It just seems like anyone who has anything that could be used against Vic are trying to. It is human nature to want justice and to bandwagon, and it may be blowing things out of proportion.
Here is a video of him comforting a girl in a hospital, in front of her parents mind you, kissing her. I think it's weird myself, and I wouldn't do it, but the I highly doubt these kisses were meant to be sexual advances.
So from that video we have proof that Vic does cross personal boundaries seemingly without asking, but I'm not sure if we should automatically consider that sexual assault or harassment. And when you have nobody seemingly calling him out in person, and only attacking him as a group online, he might not have gotten the reinforcement to change his behavior.
If you haven't seen this video, this is Vic addressing it himself and apologizing. He's either a good liar, (which is possible, don't get me wrong, he is an actor after all), or people or going overboard on the accusations.
Do I think Vic has crossed personal boundaries? Yeah. Do I think he has made people uncomfortable? Yeah. Do I think he is a sexual predator? I'm not sure there is enough evidence to say as of now.
