Funimation Drops Mignogna as Misconduct Allegations Multiplyby Tristan Oliver February 11, 2019 12 comments
This evening, Funimation, a longtime employer of voice artist Vic Mignogna, announced via their Twitter account that the company recast his role in an upcoming Funimation production, and will no longer “be engaging” his services in future productions:
Everyone, we wanted to give you an update on the Vic Mignogna situation. Following an investigation, Funimation recast Vic Mignogna in Morose Mononokean Season 2. Funimation will not be engaging Mignogna in future productions.

The moves comes as allegations of inappropriate behavior by him going back years continue to be shared on social media with the hashtag #KickVic. To this point, that has prompted all but one U.S. convention to cancel appearances by the longtime voice artist. In addition, Rooster Teeth also fired Mignogna as a VA on the popular ANIME RWBY.
It now leaves Sega as Mignogna’s last major employer as of the time of this article’s publication. He remains the VA behind E-123 Omega, and there’s no indication whether that will remain the case for the upcoming Team Sonic Racing.
Mignogna, for his part, has released a couple new statements on Twitter in response to the allegations, the remark below being one of them:
Please remember… there are always two sides to every story.
