Debate the Ethics of Vic Mignogna - TARD FIGHT

I don't get why people would stand for someone like Vic, he did apologize and said he was going to seek counseling and God but then a few weeks later said he was going to try to salvage his career in the industry, making his apology seem half hearted.
Welcome. I am curious what you think Vic apologized for doing? Thanks.
Edit to include: Also, I am not a Vic stan. As far as I know, I have never seen an anime in my life...unless Saturday morning Speed Racer cartoons count? I am here because I saw someone being crucified on Twitter and it raised questions in my mind about the morality and ethics of destroying someones reputation and career all based on mostly anonymous accusations from a Twitter mob.

It's rare to see someone who is overtly anti-Vic, here (got plenty of neutrals/don't cares/here for the laughs). Could you explain your position a little better?

When you're cornered, being beaten down by multiple people over social media with your whole life crashing down around you where thousands of people have looked up to you for years and you just want it to go away, you either get pushed to drinking, suicide, hide away forever on a complete black out on social media which someone of his level could never do, or do what these people are telling you to do "say sorry and lay low and it will all go away", its fucked up that he was pigeon holed in the first place with funimation making it public, nobody would have known and he woulda drifted off into irrelevancy.

Which is insane to me. Even crazier, the dude (for being an alleged playboy/handsy creep) hasn't had one single rape accusation against him. It'd be easy for one of this alleged conquests to come forward ... but none do. 🤔

My guess would be there was a lot of gaslighting, behind the scenes. Like that one chick getting tickled at a panel? Years later, texted Vic to say he'd assaulted her by tickling her, despite an apparent continued friendship, following the "incident".

Not Overtly, I don't like how he got people to pay for his lawyer despite the fact that he is worth 4 million dollars. If he was being sued I would have understood the need to defend himself but when he is the one suing it comes off as using your fans.

he didnt. nick rackets felt bad for vic and knew this legal battle would be costly, so nick started the gofundme. at last check, vic hasnt even touched that money, saving it as a last resort.

He didn't get people to pay for his lawyer. We have donated money freely, and that's only a small little bit.

Are you seriously that much of a fucking idiot? Do you really have anything good to say here? If not, I'd suggest minecrafting yourself and fucking off as well.

He didn't ask for it/get people to donate. His fans and other neutrals (like ComicsGate) were interested in financially backing him, before he even decided to file a lawsuit. Nick filled that need - Vic didn't want anything to do with it (apparently was uncomfortable with it). Had Vic openly shared it/shilled the GFM, it would've exceeded $200k, long ago.

Edit: more thoughts.
Edit 2: You didn't answer my question, either. Deflecting isn't a good look. 🤔

Vic didn't ask for people to fund his legal fees, I'm sure MoRonica and Marchi could run GFMs for their legals fees too, but that require them having actual fans.

Nick has mentioned over and over that vic never asked for the gofundme, the fans asked for it. Because we will pay out of our pockets and we have payed almost 200K.

Its our money we decide where it goes

Being worth something and having that same money you're worth is totally different, theres plenty of people woth millions and bankrupt.

So defending yourself with fans money is somewhat better? i donated to make a point of not fucking with a mans money because you decide you dont like him anymore and want to play a little game of "lets fuck his life up".

Edit: Meanwhile wheres Marzgurls lawsuit? she raised 4k? that was WAY over her goal and theres nothing to show from i aside from the fact she withdrew it.

Except he is not the one who made the GFM. Also people are sick of the twitter mob ruining lives unchecked and for some, this is the final straw. There are those of us that are not fans of vic that can see that kickvic is a bunch of lying spergs that cannot show evidence outside of jellybeans and lying about people in photos(that told the person using them to stop misrepresenting them). For some this is to send a message, and so a little money here and there to help him prosecute is a good way to send that message.
