Pensacon, a little-known annual sci-fi and anime convention, has shutdown their Twitter account after threatening potential attendees with arrest and imprisonment.

The meltdown by Pensacon comes on the heels of the recent firing of Vic Mignogna by Funimation due to mere allegations on social media by anonymous accounts. Vic is best known for being the voice of Broly in Dragon Ball Z. Following the allegations by anonymous accounts, Monica Rial who voices Bulma in certain Dragon Ball Z localizations, joined in with her own allegations against Vic. 

Monica has not come forward with any tangible evidence for any of her allegations against Vic, infuriating fans of Vic. As Monica Rial will be attending Pensacon, their official social media account has stated that it aims to protect Ms. Rial from any sort of questioning by attendees. It also threatened to unleash law enforcement against them. They also bragged about denying them any refunds after said arrests may happen.

Before Pensacon could delete their account, one Twitter user @ClaireEdwards88 was able to save the following extremely unprofessional and threatening Tweets from the account.

Pensacon is no stranger to controversy. Or prison for that matter. In 2015, Ben Galecki, the CEO of Pensacon received a federal indictment for dealing banned synthetic drug across 47 retail stores, truly earning the "con" in Pensacon.

We reached out for the chairman of Pensacon, Mike Ensley for comment on this story. Mike describes himself as a "minor demon who hosts old horror movies and other assorted weirdness".

We will be covering the horrendous campaign against Vic Mignogna in a more in-depth article in the near future.

  1. Man, this whole bullshit reminds me far too much of a story Patrice Oneal recited on the Opie and Anthony show, whereby he did time (Two months to be exact) in prison with rapists and his friend lost his mind because he was afraid of being man-raped, which is why I immediately side with Vic when it comes to this story.

    I would say that I don’t have any kind of goddamn respect for these people that are accusing Vic whatsoever (Remember, Jamie Marchi has gone on record of wanting to essentially kill him!), but I get the sneaking suspicion that they’re all OK with betraying their own fanbase in order to be more like their over lords in places like London and Hollywood. Not to mention that Funimation is now owned by Sony, who as we all know moved their offices over to the US of A a couple of years ago.

  2. Are all animu conventions woke and filled with degenerates? What do people even do at these things in the age of streaming for free?
