Anime News Network’s Editor-At-Large Mike Toole took to Twitter to call YouTube channels Clownfish TV and Lost Pause “Nazis” after they both covered accusations made against popular voice actor Vic Mignogna.

Not only did Toole call both of these channels “nazis,” but he also tagged YouTube in his Tweet in what appears to be a call for the streaming platform to censor both of the channels.

Toole would write in an now-deleted Tweet, “You can also be damn sure that the youtube nazis are jumping at the chance to monetize this. Great job lookin out. @YouTube.” The Tweet included a photo of Clownfish TV and Lost Pause’s YouTube videos.

Twitter user @NWC_Nation captured the Tweet:

Clownfish TV’s Kneon responded to Toole’s attack on him and his YouTube channel.

A similar response would be issued by Clownfish TV.

Toole has been actively taking to Twitter regarding the recent allegations against Vic Mignogna.

He even made his own allegations against Mignogna.

In fact, Toole advocated for a “Vic Mignogna is awful” panel back in October of 2011.

However, he would also indicate that he believes “Vic is fine,” just a day later.

Mignogna has addressed the allegations on Twitter and apologized “to any convention staff member who ever felt I was anything less than kind and grateful to be included in their event.” He also apologized “to anyyone who ever felt my interaction with them (a hug or a kiss on the cheek or forehead) was crossing a line.”

Mignogna would go into further detail at an appearance at Bak-Anime 2019.

Despite Mignogna denying the allegations, it appears that he has suffered consequences due to the accusations. Rooster Teeth fired him from his voice work on Qrow Branwen on RWBY.

Rooster Teeth announced on February 5th:

“Effective today, Vic Mignogna is no longer a part of the cast of RWBY and Rooster Teeth is ending all associations with Mignogna. This will not affect the creative content of RWBY.”

According to FanCons, Mignogna has seen a number of conventions withdraw their invitation to him. They include:

  • Anime NYC 2019
  • Kamcha Con UK 2019
  • Religh Supercon 2019
  • Florida Supercon 2019
  • Rangerstop & Pop Con 2019
  • Phoenix Fan Fusion 2019
  • Kamcha Con 2019
  • Kawaii Kon 2019
  • Emerald City Comic Con 2019
  • Kami Con 2019.

Anime Milwaukee 2019, Ancient City Con 2019, and Planet Comicon Kansas City 2019 are marked as a “cancelled appearance.” In 2018, Mignogna only had two cancelled appearances.
