「Western anime voice actor Vic Mignogna’s lawsuit is finally starting to come to fruition, as it has been revealed that the abused actor is suing Funimation and two other voice actors for defaming his character, asking for $1 million in damages.
Vic Mignogna, famous for being the English-language voice actor for Dragon Ball‘s Broly and Fullmetal Alchemist‘s Edward Elric, has filed a lawsuit related to slanderous rumors about him engaging in sexual misconduct.
Mignogna is claiming that Funimation, along with fellow voice actors Jamie Marchi and Monica Rial (and Rial’s fiancé Ronald Toye) are guilty of making false charges against him and of damaging his career by interfering in other work contracts.
Mignogna had previously been unpersoned after being accused of the horrific crime of hugging his fans, with the nature of the #MeToo witch-hunt meaning that many in the industry were quick to declare him guilty based on the flimsiest of evidence.
The suit is being filed in Texas, and Mignogna and his lawyer Ty Beard (of Beard Harris Bullock Hughes) are demanding $1,000,000 in monetary relief, along with other relief to which Mignogna “may be justly or equitably entitled”.
The voice actor has said that the lawsuit is his “last and only recourse” to salvage his reputation and his 20-year career in the industry.」
This is quite an involved story - One that requires truthseeking. While rumors are just rumors - They are quite damaging in this case. You shouldn't base people by things that are potentially not true and see for yourself with your own eyes. Its quite the mental toll to take when you are constantly harrassed and falsely accused by 'cyberbullies' for years to the point that you have to resort to this sort of action. These false accusations with little evidence has got to go and the witch hunt and modern day lynching needs to stop. The man deserves some 'real' justice and some peace. Hopefully he wins the case.
