PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THIS AND SHARE THIS.
Aki-Con wants to hide this under the rug, they have blamed the victim and called her a liar, and DJ Victor is NOT to be trusted. He is a known felon, who has raped two known girls now, but who knows how many others who have not spoken up of this. All I ask is that you reblog this and get this attention out there.
Share it with local news media stations, other convention goers, etc.
I actually tried to warn Aki-Con about this man being a felon and they ignored me.
And guess what?
Another innocent girl got RAPED because they ignored the facts.
Not only that, but they IGNORED the girl and tried to say she was lying when she immediately went to staff for help.
EDIT: So, Victor Malice is a part of a cosplay group with around 400 members, give or take.
Which is still a very small part of the pacific northwest and Seattle cosplay community. Out of safety and concern for the members, I shared the post about this situation to the group.
The admins are friends with Victor Malice and DELETED THE POST as to HIDE what happened to people.
IGNORING WARNINGS IS WHAT GOT US HERE, PEOPLE.
If Aki-Con had heeded the warning they received and dropped him as their DJ, then a girl would NOT have been raped by him at Aki-Con 2013.
I personally find it SICKENING that his friends are being his accomplices and are trying to hide these facts from everyone.
This includes the Aki-Con staff that are his friends and knew his past,
This includes the cosplay group admins that are his friends and knew his past,
This includes any of the people who knew his true nature and kept quiet about this. All of this. And even now, they are trying to hide it.
LADIES, PLEASE KEEP YOUR GUARDS UP AT ALL TIMES.
Bad things CAN HAPPEN AT CONVENTIONS.
I will tell you this to the end of the world, because I don’t believe in hiding these facts. I don’t think it is “protecting” anyone in anyway to try and hide what happened. So yes, against their wishes, I will help spread the word about this poor girl and anyone else who may have been victimized by him.
Because I don’t want to see the numbers increased by fools who tried to hide the truth about people who are like DJ Victor Malice.
This isn’t just about one man having done this, this is about making sure people know these kinds of things do happen at conventions.
EDIT2: Luckily someone had left the tab up and had the conversation. So, since it was requested, here was the post and the arguments.
Admins were tagged, and the post was deleted. Remember how it was argued that the admins would tell the group about anything if there was any kind of safety concern?
Well, no warning has been posted. The post got deleted as soon as the admins noticed it and nothing has been said about it since.
My friend on Facebook told me about this.
He’s been convicted in Arizona for sexual conduct with a minor, attempt to commit, and dangerous crimes against children.
If you are in the Washington area, or near by like Vancouver, please be aware of this situation. He is known for going to conventions, and a lot of people are actually acquaintances with him. Since places like Aki Con clearly make huge mistakes like this, please be extra careful to be safe at cons.
I, for one, will not be going to Aki Con again.
This is very upsetting to learn, and I had believed it would not happen again, that the staff would see their fucking errors and do something about it. I fear this is the end for Aki-con for my self, and I suggest for it to be the end for others.
This kind of blatant dishonesty- In not just this, but for how they have treated attendees and Vendors as well. I have only been to Aki twice. In 2012 and this year, and this year I had thought was significantly better from putting the Vendors in the mildew infested and cold garage all day for three days-
Then of course the missing children event when there was a twelve year old cosplayer missing and staff had told me, with a fretting mother and crying sister that there was NOTHING they could do. I thought it was better this year, I thought they have gotten rid of the mentioned DJ that had done this heinous deed before.
I do believe I will also no longer be attending Aki-con, and I again say that others should also do the same. It maybe be fun while you’re there, but you don’t know what you’re inadvertently supporting until it’s too late.
This really hit home when I realized I’d met her at kumoricon this year. She was staffing for registration and we talked about her ariel cosplay and how she wasn’t 18 just yet unfortunately.
This horrifying and I’m so sorry to hear this has happened to her. I’ve never personally attended Aki-con, but I will definitely never attend now.
I love this so much.
FIGURE SKATERS ARE MADE OF MAGIC
OH MY GOD I WAS SO NERVOUS THE WHOLE TIME THAT THEY WERE GONNA FALL HOLY SHIT I COULDN’T BREATHE
That was possibly the most beautiful thing I have ever witnessed in my life.
I WAS SO NERVOUS AND WHEN HE THREW HER I WAS LIKE OMG GIRL BE SAFE
BUT GUYS SERIOUSLY I CAN’T EVEN WALK ON ICE WITHOUT FALLING ON MY ASS
EVERYONE I HAVE OFFICIALLY DIED OKAY SO i was in walmart singing softly to the “gaston” song from beauty and the beast so i did the whole “when i was a lad i ate four dozen eggs every morning to help me get large and now that i’m grown i eat five dozen eggs so i’m roughly the size of a barge” and this guy next to me covered in tattoos and piercing and a massive mohawk adds on quietly under his breath “no one fights like gaston”
