Vic Mignogna is a voice actor who worked at Funimation. He received an award "best actor" in 2007. One of Mignogna's career goals was "to record at all of the major places where dubbing is done".

Following the English release of Dragon Ball Super: Broly, which prominently features Mignogna's vocal work on January 16, 2019, some accusations of sexual harassment began to surface against him. There were rumors that he kissed, groped, and made unwanted comments to fans without their consent, some of whom were underage according to some multiple accounts of Twitter.

Vic's situation got worse, as fellow voice actors Monica Rial and Jamie Marchi also accused Vic of sexual harassment in February 2019. As a result, Vic's contract was terminated and Funimation publicly confirmed that they had ended professional ties with Mignogna on February 11, 2019. Since then, his ongoing voice roles have been taken over by other voice actors.

Ever since the "Vic Mignogna Controversy", it has spawned a toxic movement known as #KickVic.

Why They're Rotten

  1. It's a defamation scheme/scandal designed to ruin a famous guy's career, what else is there to say?
  2. They dehumanize him because of some sexual assault incidents, which turned out to be "false accusation of sexual harassment".
    • It's also worth mentioning that if Vic actually did the things KickVic accused him of, the chances are he should be in jail by now.
  3. Many of the bigger names in the movement straight up falsify evidence against Vic, or against his supporters, to make him and them look worse than they are.
  4. They even compare him to the likes of Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby, both of whom are guilty of much worse than anything Vic has even been accused of.
  5. This movement is similar to Michael Jackson's hatedom, as both communities accused both Vic and Jackson of crimes they have not been proven to have committed, which has nearly destroyed both the reputations and careers of the two.
  6. They falsely labeled him as "homophobic" even though he isn't and never has been against people with LGBT and gay rights. In fact, many of his friends are gay and he even told off homophobic protesters near an anime convention.
  7. They will even get aggressive against anyone who tries to remain unbiased or who tries to not pick a side in the issue, seeing them as just as bad as somebody who supports Vic in their eyes. And, since they think Vic is a horrible person, they therefore assume that anybody who is on Vic's side is also a horrible person.
    • They also believe people who like Vic are all misogynistic when, in actuality, there are many female supporters of him. They even started a hashtag called #Women4Vic.
    • They also call Vic supporters "Rape Apologists".
    • This has also included threatening to call the police on them, harassing them to the point where they begin contemplating suicide for the sake of getting some edgy attention, and even wishing rape or death on them.
  8. GameFAQs' moderation team has joined in on being anti-Vic to disturbing degrees. As can be witnessed from what happened with this topic, they had deleted a previous new topic responding to the previous one being closed at less than 20 posts, something that forced Destroyer53, who had previously promised to not make any new topics about the Vic case, to make a special case around that, only for the mods to close this same topic anyway, all on the grounds that there was "no news about the case" despite Vic's appeals getting in providing hard evidence to the contrary.
  9. They want anime dub studios to go back and alter previous roles of his retroactively, such as this one.
  10. They also mock him in downright petty or immature ways, such as mispronouncing his name on purpose as "Mig-nog-nah" rather than "Min-yah-nah".
    • They even censor him name out as if it's a swear word or a slur such as "V*C".
  11. They claim to have evidence from far back to 2003 to convince people to hate him, but they have not shown any proper evidence and instead blocked the people just for asking for it.
  12. If you tell them how #KickVic Supporters ruined his career, you'll find responses saying Vic ruined his own career, which presumes his guilt and ignores the part of #KickVic in his career's recent downward spiral.
  13. Some are even claiming him to be a COVID-19/Coronavirus denier just because he made a joke about the pandemic, by just saying "Broly doesn't fear Covid" when ask by a fan what were Broly's thoughts on Covid. Here's the video if you want to see.
    • When Vic also showed a Funko Pop figure of some of the characters he's voiced into one Funko Pop, they raged at him and told Funko Pop to not sponsor him.
  14. They display immense hypocrisy, often ignoring the terrible actions of members of the movement, even things that are worse than what Vic has been accused of. For example:
    • Jamie Marchi's controversial tweets, such as her infamous School Shootings one.
    • Chris Thurman sending dick pics to underage girls.
    • Ron Toye being a documented abuser who has physically assaulted his two ex-wives and his children.
    • Funimation being well aware that Scott Freeman was a pedophile before he got arrested.
  15. They've been known to send both Vic and his supporters straight up death threats, something that's pretty much never acceptable.
  16. Greg Douchette admits to not caring to try to read a TwitLonger entry calling out BOTH sides of the Vic Mignogna debacle despite claiming to be legal authority.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. A few of them apologized to Vic and regretted their actions as they realized that Vic himself is still innocent. As a result, they redeemed themselves by turning to either "healthy haters" or "healthy fans".
  2. After some of them calmed down, they go ahead to turn on against and criticize Funimation. Why? Because some now wanted to give Vic the respect and the justice that he deserves.
  3. Some people speculated to support KV have stopped tweeting about him past a certain time.
  4. There are some mature, more tolerable supporters of the movement that do not lash out at fans like the majority of KickVic.
    1. When an ISWV supporter called out Daman Mills for accusing Vic of acting creepy towards him and not providing any evidence to back up his claim, Derick Snow had a civil discussion with said supporter in Twitter direct messages surrounding a disagreement over the matter without ever resorting to threats, name-calling, or other insults.
    2. Despite the fact that Kellen Goff criticized Vic's decision to attend UltraCon 2020 and his "Broly's not scared of COVID" joke and follows Monica, Jamie, and MarzGurl on Twitter, he will not get into arguments over the matter, as he himself tweeted that he prefers to work out arguments by civilly discussing with the other person and tries to understand why they hold that viewpoint.
  5. With the exception of Jason Liebrecht when he took over the role of Qrow Branwen in RWBY, none of Vic's voice successors acted out of line or tried to erase the history of him voicing certain characters they would later take on the roles of.

And sometimes, their actions speak louder than their words, despite none of them (except JYB, Todd, Chuck, and Reuben) saying anything about it. For example, despite receiving tremendous pressure from KV, neither Bryce Papenbrook nor David Vincent banned Vic from Unlocked.

Plus, I even heard that Cristina Vee sided with KV for a while, but then stopped afterwards. Hopefully, she's gotten more friendly or at least neutral towards Vic now, 'cause she's one of my favorite voice actresses and I don't wanna see her end up like Jamie Marchi or Monica Rial. 😱

There's even speculation that a handful of VAs do indeed support Vic, but unlike JYB, Todd, Chuck, Reuben, Dameon Clarke, Trey Parker, Matt Stone, and Stephanie Nadolny, they're silent on it to avoid outrage from KV.

Said VAs include Laura Bailey, Kyle Hebert, Stephanie Young, Jeff Johnson, Christine Auten, Luci Christian, Tiffany Vollmer, Peter Kelamis, Chris Ayres, Eric Vale, and Tara Strong.

I do have theories that Jim Cummings (as well as JYB, Todd, and Robbie Daymond) support Vic because they too are victims of false accusations. I also think that some VAs, in surprising twists of events, feel sorry that they had to replace Vic in certain roles (namely Landon McDonald, Billy Kametz, and Austin Tindle). But this second paragraph is merely speculation.

Still, whaddya think?

Yeah, I also heard about Jim Cummings supporting Vic, since he got false accusations, too, according to the list of VAs who are with Vic, neutral, or on KV's side on DeviantArt. It even said that Matt Stone and Trey Parker, creators of "South Park", are also on Vic's side.

Yeah, again, super late, but there's even buzz that Soulja Boy and Michael Rosenbaum (Martinex from GOTG2) support ISWV.

Also, just because someone supports KV doesn't make them a bad person. Derick Snow (Shinra from Fire Force) and Kellen Goff (Funtime Freddy from FNAF, Overhaul from MHA and Diavolo from JoJo) support the latter but as we can see, they're mature and respectful about their opinion. If only HALF of KV were as mature as those two, then life would look just like The Jetsons.

What Funimation did can be described in two words

Scapegoating and Projection

Sadly Vic was used as a scapegoat even though they're were voice actors that did worse and speaking of which they're projecting they're wrongdoings onto Vic to make themselves feel better
