He mentions in his tweet to not harass any collaborators for they were not part of this controversy.

In One Piece, he voiced the gladiator bull Ulcy during the Dressrosa arc.

Chris Thurman is the second English Voice actor removed from Funimation due to being caught in sexual crimes. The first one was Scott Freeman who was caught in sexual misconduct in 2014. Freeman was the former voice of Issei from High School DxD. According to Bounding Into Comics, despite Freeman doing these crimes, he continued to work with Funimation until 2015 and then Funimation stated they were not aware of his actions.
