The convention is Kitchener Comic Con (click for their website).

Upon finding out that Vic Mignogna was invited…

A brigade of harassment was directed at the convention. Let’s start with this email chain the convention received.

Redactions were made to remove identifying information ( last name, email). The quality is unfortunately also poor (Edit: We have been generously sent additional email screenshots and also better quality screenshots for the emails we had! I will still leave the transcription though, it may be helpful) but a transcription is below the images;








“Unfortunately I can not say I regret my post. As I have done further research I have found several accounts of harassment and assault that were not addressed, this guest being the cherry on top. While I may in future attend KCC I can with absolute honesty say I will never be able to show my support since it goes against my brand. I am sorry you feel slighted by my post but I stand by what I said.”

“You’re fully entitled to your opinion, though I do wish we would have had the chance to discuss things to compare points and hopefully educate each other.

This isn’t about feeling slighted, this is simply about being professional with each other and it’s disappointing that you chose not to honor what you agreed to. Again, we’re not asking you to remove anything, just making you aware of things. 

To date, we haven’t received any complaints or concerns about sexual harassment at all during our convention. While there may be plenty of individuals who are sharing stories that are taken well out of context and outright fabricated, again – none of those issues have been brought to us to be resolved in any manner.

I’m not here to try and change your mind about any guests, or members of our staff, Lynn. I just hope that in future, whether it be yourself or anyone else who have concerns, that they take thew appropriate steps to resolve issues instead of taking actions that don’t contribute to any kind of resolution, and only lead to mudding(?) of information and mistrust between all parties.

Our team only wants to put on a great, inclusive show for fans. Inclusivity doesn’t exclude people we don’t like, without having valid reasons or evidence to do so. I hope you are able to find the peace that you need, and perhaps one day you’ll find the enjoyment in our convention once again, that others are currently discovering.

Truly, do wish you the best.”

“And I know this to be a lie. I personally have made reports and on the short time that post has been up I’ve uncovered 17 cases of assault, harassment, and abuse. Why this con is alowed to run astounds me and the blatant denial is as much an admittance of guilt as I have ever seen. This is very offensive on several levels.”

“We haven’t been able to find your email at all. We spoke with Michael, and he informed us that the interaction took place on video – that you and your husband both were agreeing to.

There has been 0 cases of assault, harassment, or abuse and I would caution against using that strong verbage. Once again, please provide any evidence of such things – such as police reports, court documents, etc, and I will happily retract my statement.

If you continue to perpetuate these types of rumors, I do want to caution that it is defamatory and we will proceed accordingly. We have attempted to be professional with you, and have only been met with hostility. If that is how you’d like to proceed, that is up to you. Please take some time to consider your actions, moving forward.”

“Ya’ll can go to hell.”

Now here are some of the public attacks against the convention’s reputation;



As you can see, the posts and emails share a few themes. Namely, they lack evidence backing up their claims, and display a massive lack of professionalism. To the point that you can’t even take them seriously…

They also seem very desperate to try and convince people ( with their posts that have no evidence ) that a guest at the convention is a predator.

    The members of the con staff need to be praised for their level of professionalism. It isn’t easy dealing with children in general, let alone grown up adolescents.
