They said they stand with Vic on the call.
Well, there's a major case of Poe's Law if I've ever heard one.

I'm not one for being overly dramatic online (or offline, for that matter), but Jesus! This has gotten ridiculously out of hand.

I'm glad the police apologized and are helping to fix the door (look further down on Adam Sheehan's Twitter post), but still, this is yet another example of why people are afraid to come forward with allegations of sexual abuse: the reactions can get violent.

There's nothing inherently wrong with ignorance and it's VERY tempting to believe that we live in a world or even a country where if someone experienced harassment or sexual assault they would feel safe going to the authorities, but those are not the realities. The more I read, even this thread alone, the clearer it is why cases go unreported. If a Z list celeb can engender this kind of response, can you imagine what people getting assaulted by people with real power have to deal with?

Nothing against the good folks here and other places but anime fans by and large are a fucking cesspool and it's a small wonder why I've spent almost all of my internet "life" navigating around those fuckmuffins of 4Chan and the like.

Bulma: Of course! I'm not gonna pull a Frieza and screw it up!
Master Roshi: Bulma, I think Frieza failed because he wore too many clothes!

Jesus freakin' christ. I don't care WHAT someone believes, but the fact that someone would actually go to the lengths of calling in a fake SWAT team over this shit is...amazingly fucking sick, twisted, and wrong. Like, what the actual fuck is wrong with whoever did this? I also can't believe we live in a country that refuses to put tougher gun laws in place while simultaneously making it that goddamn easy to call SWAT on someone. How. Why. The fuck.

Do we know who it was that had SWAT called on them, or is that being purposely withheld for their protection? If it's the latter, that's fine and perfectly understandable, I'm just curious if we know.

Then where did you just link it from? You got this image from somewhere, you can't just say here's some pics but I don't know where I got them from.

If this is true

Yeah. Blame the crazy fans. Not Vic.

Stupid people take shit way too far.

Unfortunately yes. For a while a few years back, it was seemingly becoming the preferred go-to method of assholes with an axe to grind against content creators and/or celebrities that they got pissed off at online. Sadly, some people think calling in the cops and possibly getting people shot for no reason is 'a prank'.

Holy. Fuck.

This whole scandal with Vic Mignogna has truly shown an incredibly dark and twisted side of the anime fandom.

Not only that, but Geekdom101 also got exposed by a guy who also has a Discord and PH (PornHub) account on YouTube.

You being sarcastic? I hope so.

Good God, what's with the minds of some people? Calling SWAT to attack a VA? This is REALLY getting out of hand.

Um, Geekdom made that video to debunk that other guy. If you SERIOUSLY think that Geekdom got exposed, you're an idiot. I seriously hope you're joking. I'm giving you an out from looking stupid. Take it.
