Dragon Ball Super: Broly Voice Glumac Vic Mignogna Osporava tvrdnje o nepropisnom ponašanju, homofobiji

Dragon Ball Super Broly

Glasovni glumac Vic Mignogna - poznat po izražavanju puno likova u video igrama i animeu, a nedavno je igrao i Brolyja u Super Dragon Ball: Broly - na udaru je zbog navodnog nedoličnog ponašanja i homofobije.

YouTubea YellowFlash 2 pokriva kontroverze i gdje se nalazi u ovom trenutku, što uključuje tipične sektore socijalne pravde u Twitteru, u kojima se navodi da je Vic Mignogna bio uključen u seksualno zlostavljanje, homofobiju i antisemitizam.

Neke od tvrdnji uključuju neprikladan dodir, ljubljenje i neuspjeh da se potpiše yaoi (gay) fanart.

Očito ima ljudi u krugovima Tumblr i Socijalnog ratnika koji brzo demoniziraju Vic prije nego što se pojavi bilo kakav dokaz, uzimajući tvrdnje kao činjenicu, iako znamo da lažne optužbe mogu biti vrlo štetne.

Stranice kao što su Poligon skupio je sve tvrdnje, što uključuje ljude koji tvrde da je sve to od ljubljenja i pipanja, do prekoračenja vremena na panelu, do nepotpisivanja njihove yaoi umjetnosti.

Da, ljudi ga ozbiljno napadaju jer nije potpisao yaoi art.

Različiti korisnici usluge Twitter tvrde da se to događa već više od desetljeća otkad je počeo biti popularan u anime zajednici nakon što je objavio razne poznate likove kao što je Broly u Dragon Ball Z i Edward Elric u Fullmetal Alchemist ili Ikkaku Madarame u Izbjeljivač.

Jessica goes on to say that they’ve been debunked before, but since Mignogna is back in the spotlight due to the recent popularity of Super Dragon Ball: Broly, he’s being dragged through the mud… again.

Očito je negirao te tvrdnje objavljivanjem pisma na Twitteru kako bi se pozabavio svim tim tvrdnjama. Pismo je objavljeno u siječnju 21st, 2019.

If you’re unable to read it, the lengthy rebuttal states…

“This is heartbreaking. Over the last few days, a number of comments and allegations have been voiced on social media. I’d like to share my thoughts.

 

“Homophobic? No! Some of my dearest friends are members of the LGBTQ community, including several that I brought into my production family on Star Trek Continues. This is a blatantly false statement. I said many years ago that I didn’t think a particular character I voiced was gay, contrary to what some fans believed, not because it matters to me AT ALL, but because I was told this was the case. I also elected not to autograph Yaoi, not because I am homophobic but because I didn’t wish to sign material that was not canon.

 

“Anti-Semitic?? I couldn’t even grasp where this was coming from until someone pointed me to a moment years ago where I was in a panel and referred to a bunch of noise coming from another room jokingly as a “holocaust.” As I said then, it was a metaphor for armageddon, death, and mass destruction, but not “THE Holocaust.” Could I have chosen a different word? Sure, in retrospect I could have. And, of course, I am sorry that it offended anyone.

 

“Iskreno se ispričavam svakom članu kongresnog osoblja koji je ikada osjećao da sam nešto manje od ljubaznog i zahvalan što sam uključen u njihov događaj. Nepoznato većini zaposlenika, ugovorni aranžmani dogovoreni unaprijed s protivnicima povremeno nisu bili počašćeni kad sam stigao i to me je frustriralo. To ne opravdava to da se netko osjeća loše, a ja sam jako žao.

 

“I would also like to sincerely apologize to anyone who ever felt my interaction with them (a hug or a kiss on the cheek or forehead) was crossing a line. Never in a million years would it be my intent to make anyone feel uncomfortable. Rather, it was meant to show gratitude or support. I come from an affectionately expressive family where such displays are commonplace. But I understand that not everyone feels the same way. Hence, I will not be interacting in the same way with fans in the future. Understand this is the climate we live in and this is how it has to be. To my fans who ask me for hugs, etc., I’m sorry, but please know that I am no less grateful to or support of you!

 

“Finally, any allegations of sexual harassment, sexual assault, or most disturbingly, pedophilia, are COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY FALSE. My heart weeps for anyone who endures a violation of this kind, so to be accused of harming others in this way….I have no words.”

Čak i uz ovu izjavu #KickVic hashtag nastavlja prikupljati odgovore od ljudi koji tvrde da treba biti izbačen iz industrije.

For the people claiming he’s homophobic, some of the evidence they point to is actually based on a rather absurd YouTube snippet from 2007, where he claims that the character he’s voicing in the anime isn’t gay.

Još jedan video je također objavljen u 2013-u gdje tvrde da je izbjegavao pitanje podrške homoseksualnim brakovima.

S obzirom na to kako su neki fandomi (osobito na Twitteru i Tumblr-u) prilično bijesni, shvatili su to kao znak da je Mignogna homofobična.

So far there still isn’t any credible evidence made apparent but that hasn’t stopped plenty of people from losing their jobs in the #MeToo era. Whether the allegations will lead to certain companies dropping Mignogna or not remains to be seen, but unlike others within the entertainment industry, he didn’t try to dodge the allegations by tvrdeći da je "gay".
