I've been a voice actor for 20 years. I've known Vic Mignogna for most of that. I'd heard stories of him preying on particularly younger women & girls & I've seen his behavior upclose. Now dozens of courageous women are sharing their experiences. We must listen to them.

We need to be better. As a community, an industry, a world. We need to listen to survivors. What does it say to our daughters & sons when we say to "Prove it." and "We don't believe you"? It says no one will believe you. And it says go ahead and do what you want. We need to stop.

I want to be clear. I'm risking nothing by speaking up. I haven't worked regularly in the industry since moving out of NYC a few years back to start a family. The folks who are risking are the ones sharing their experiences - and being told by strangers online that they're lying.

You knew him for 20 years, heard the rumors and saw the behavior... And yet... Why now? Why say something NOW? Why not back when you noticed his behavior?

You're right. I should've said more back then. We live in a moment when people are finding courage to share their experiences. I'm a survivor of sexual assault. My abuser was a very powerful person and I feared retribution. Now it's important to me that I lift up others' voices.

Meanwhile Jessie still refuses to take accountability for no reason tackling me at AX and breaking my arm. If we're here doing more call outs, she owes both me and Henry about $5,000 in total for medical bills and lost wages. I was out of work for 2 months.

Not sure what this has to do with anything really, but maybe take it up with Jessie.

Thank you so much for speaking up!! We need more industry people and people who know him personally to say something. This helps so much. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

A lot of folks in the industry are much closer with Vic than I am. I only know him through several cons we attended together as guests. Others respectfully don't want to rock the boat because they still have to work with him. I'm lucky enough that I don't have to.

I don't tend to believe Twitter users who just started an account this week and who only follow 1 person, and that person is Donald Trump - a serial sexual predator and pathological liar.
