WARNING: The following news will be unbiased! I will not voice my opinion in this news. If you are going to comment about your opinion towards Vic Migogna or Funimation or anything related, be careful of any potential commentators. Let’s be civil. Once again, I am just sharing you the news and I will not voice my opinion.

Things are reaching the climax for this Vic Migogna controversy or more like the endgames for #IStandWithVic and #KickVic people. It’s been reported that voice actor Vic Migogna has filed a million dollar claim towards the anime company Funimation and he is suing the co-workers and voice actors Monica Rial, Jamie Marchi, and Ronald Toy. He is suing them for defamation, interference in existing contracts and prospective business relations, and civil conspiracy.

To make a long story short about the Vic Migogna controversy, Polygon mentioned that this news occurred this year near the end of January right around when Funimation released Dragon Ball Super Broly the movie. Vic was the voice for the returning character Broly. In Twitter, many people created the #KickVic hashtag and stated that Vic was harassing his fans with unwanted kisses and hugs; some went as far as saying he violated his own workers. However, the other side known as #IStandWithVic states that Vic is innocent and these allegations are false because they lack proof. Regardless, these accusations has caused Rooster Teeth to fire Vic and removed him from the series RWBY and Funimation did the same and took him off The Morose Mononokean 2 and removed him from future projects. Funimation also removed bonus features in the DVD release of Dragon Ball Super Broly where Vic got an interview. Anime conventions also removed hum however, he did get reinstated in Kamehamecon this month.  Here is what I found from Polygon:

In the lawsuit, Mignogna claims that Rial, Marchi, and Toye directly interfered in his business affairs and that all the statements they made against him are false. “The repeated attention that Monica, Jamie, and even Funimation’s agents, employees or business partners, gave [Twitter user] hanleia’s and Marzgurl’s accusations caused their Tweets to ‘go viral,’” the lawsuit suggests. In the descriptions of the situation, Mignogna’s claim suggests that the defendants have continued “carpet-bombing” him on Twitter, through continued discussion of the allegations.

It’s been mentioned that Vic has hired a lawyer named Ty Beard of Beard Harris Bullock Hughes and he is hoping for “monetary relief over $1,000,000.00 in addition to other relief to which Mignogna “may be justly or equitably entitled.” Variety has posted up the documents for the court.

Friday Funny 209: Time to die again!

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back to another episode of Friday Funny! I hope everyone is doing well this week. We’re halfway through April and now we are in the second half. Before we being these killer memes, here is some quick news. Nintendo is releasing the DLC character Joker from Persona 5 in Super Smash Bros Ultimate for the Switch. If you have money or already bought the season pass, you should definitely buy this character for the 70+ roster. In other news in video games, we have the upcoming Mortal Kombat 11 video game for Switch, PS4 and X1! Taking place after MKX, players will be able to play as old characters and fight against the modern characters. Test your might and see which Scorpian is better, the klassic or the modern version. The game is set to be released on April 23rd and if you pre-ordered the game, players will have access to play as Shao Khan. Next in the news, we have the upcoming holiday Easter! For Christians like me, Easter is an important holiday as we celebrate and remember the resurrection of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Thanks to His resurrection, Jesus conquered death and whoever believes in Him shall not die but will have everlasting life in Heaven and be part of God’s family. Last but not least, we have the anime movie Dragon Ball Super: Broly on DVD and Blu-Ray. This is the first time in a long time we get to see the DB antagonist Broly again but this time he is canon and so is Bardock, Goku’s father.

With this said, let’s fight!

Here are some killer videos for this upcoming Mortal Kombat game:
