It came out a few weeks ago that they had some serious crunch issues and just a few days ago announced they were rising their subscription prices. So Vic supporters are shouting that it's somehow karma for firing Vic.

Despite them getting a show on Toonami and being more popular than ever...

It's people shouting that Rooster Teeth are having issues so that they can try and have a 'HAHA!', mocking moment against a company that is largely on the rise more than it's been since RWBY initially caught on. They're fine. They're raising their prices because they have a higher budget to meet now and so that they can put that money into making quality products more than they have before so far. They just want to bring the company down and it isn't going to work.

I mean Gen:Lock, which is okay at best, is a show that was originally on Roosterteeth.

also outside of Gen:lock and RWBy, Roosterteeth isn't memorable. If it wasn't for VRV, I wouldn't even look at them.

They're getting tons of high list actors, David Tennant, Micheal B Jordan, and more. They're getting a special on Discovery channel for shark week.

yeah, I know they got some nice actors. But doesn't help that they only got the two shows. I mean who is stupid enough to pay a monthly subscription for just two shows?

I mean. They got Red vs Blue too: one of the oldest and longest running web shows of all time. And was the project responsible for initially catapulting RT to success. And made long before RWBY or Gen: Lock was a twinkle in anyone's eyes.

Convention members are also alleging that Vic harrassed the one and only Minmay voice actress/singer Mari Iijima. Even Brett Weaver, who voiced Roy in the ADV dub, had to come to her defense.

God... damn. It's not like I doubted the accusations, but I didn't expect the rabbit hole to go this far down. The number of accusers just doesn't stop.

It's almost as if serial abusers need to be addressed by their employers immediately and not ignored just to help line their wallets...

To be cynical for a moment, are his employers actually losing anything from all this, besides one talent who suddenly became more trouble than he was worth?

Word is that Gen Fukunaga was covering for Vic, which is supported by them suddenly booting out Fukunaga and then Vic.

If they lose the lawsuit yes they have something they lost since they're named in the lawsuit.


Jesus this shit the hole it keeps sinking. Like if he wins it will be through legal jargon rather than the truth. I hope this sick son of a bitch rots and gets busted for something and actually faces criminal charges. You know he's done something to warrant it.

Not a huge amount, but yes. They're paying legal fees for a superfluous trial, and Funi got a good bit of flak for obviously being aware of Vic's behavior and doing nothing to discourage it. And the company is likely going to restructure itself to make sure something like this doesn't happen again. Things are definitely going to change for a lot of the companies that hired him.

Well it might not be some large sum, but Vic's popularity probably netted them some money. Doesn't matter though, at the very least they were quick to cut ties once his shit hit the fan. But whether they were entirely too complicit in letting his actions slide before...eh well not going to debate that. But regardless of whatever money he brought in for them, again doesn't matter now.

Definitely not.

I don't even know how it all went on this long. Especially when his co-workers were continually complaining about him, we've seen athletes fired for less.

I tried to remain neutral on this situation but going deeper down this rabbit hole it's just f'ed up. I've watched all the depositions and read a few affidavits and it's a terrible situation. It's getting even more difficult to keep track of this situation because more stories seem to pop up about Vic and keep in mind that Vic is the plaintiff with the lawsuit.
