Nick Rekieta is canceled. He is only doing this for the notoriety.

Not only that, but monetary gain. But that's besides the point. If you want insight into what's happening, he interviews Vic Mignogna's lawyer here:

These livestreams with Vic's Lawyer will answer a lot of your questions about "how" and "why". Chris Sabat and Monica Rial have allegedly been threatening the con owners over text which they can supposedly be sued for. The livestreams are long and there are timestamps in the comments for the second livestream, but I couldn't find any for the first one.

Yeah, I'll be honest. I haven't followed this at all. And actively ignore any videos about it that pop up on my recommendations list. Other than a quick commentary by Geekdom saying that he's staying out of this, I haven't watched anything on it.

How is an interview with Vic's lawyer propaganda? What's with all the fascism? This is newsworthy. It's Vic Mignogna's lawyer talking for 8 hours about what legal action is being taken.

Seems really hypocritical to question the descriptor they're using and then immediately jump to describing it as facism. In what way is it racist to call it propaganda?

Propaganda is biased information used to influence a viewpoint. Rekieta has made his bias known, it's not fascist to point that out.

I kinda doubt any reputable lawyer would spend eight hours laying out their case publicly on Youtube before any of it actually goes to court. Any actual lawyers or legal experts want to comment on that?

I think all the youtube lawyer stuff is just trying to put lipstick on a defamatory pig. The ones they are attempting to defame of course being Rial and Sabat.

Looks like Josh Grelle has dropped out of going as well. Anyone have a handy list of who all actually is still going at this point? I'm curious how many are left at this point.

When you're using that as a "point" then yes it is. 3 hour videos of Mr. Blackface is a joke lawyer and him going after the people dropping out?

And from the responses.... "Hope you get sued"

Jeez, talk about spiteful. This is absolutely crazy.

It won’t happen, but I would laugh my ass off if Vic supporters and Youtube lawyer convinced Toei to take the license back from Funimation. Their sociopathic obsession with Vic actually killing Dragon Ball in North America would be hysterical.

It's not even about Rekieta, it's about getting to hear Vic Mignogna's lawyer speak about the impending lawsuits, which in turn may change the Dragon Ball franchise itself. Please stop being shortsighted and ridiculous by trying to ban relevant news from this thread. I'm the type of person who likes to know everything going on, like many others. It's not about picking sides, it's about information.

As I said before, I don't believe for a second that Rial and Sabat were acting that way. They would have threatened to leave, sure, but I highly doubt that they were harassing the con owners because, well, they're professionals. I think this YouTube laywer is using colourful words to make Vic and the con appear as victims (ironic, really).
The youtube lawyer is interviewing Vic's lawyer in both videos. He apparently has proof. Watch for yourself if you wish.

I'm actually wondering how likely it is we're getting a third Kamehacon next year too at this point, as I saw some others questioning. It's a shame - Dragon Ball is probably one of the few anime super-popular enough in the US to manage a convention entirely to itself, but it's not looking too great that it'll keep happening.
Someone van try agian with a diffrent team behind it

Now that kamehameha is tainted as a con name i guess the next attempt would be Saiyan con?

Can't use anything with dragon in the name as that's already used in conventions circuit.

Per Wikipedia:
Wikipedia wrote:Fascism is a form of radical, right-wing, authoritarian ultranationalism, characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society and of the economy
Note that suppression of information does not automatically mean it's fascist. You also need ultranationalism and a "strong regimentation of society and of the economy", and a dictator, which is practically impossible in any context of this thread.

lol, VAs pulling out of a year-old con because a sexual predator is gonna be there is hardly the sort of thing that will kill Dragon Ball in the States.
