I don’t normally do these things, but I’ve been seething lately and I figured it would be good to get it off my chest cuz it’s not like I’m going to make a video about it
So there was this small undertale movie project that I joined, and the first sign of trouble was that the only voice actor I’ve ever had a problem with was in this group. I won’t name him, but me and this voice actor had a falling out because he bullied this poor kid to the point that he tried to commit suicide, then called him delusional and manipulative. I didn’t want anything to do with that, and then he proceeded to call me delusional and manipulative.
Anyways, about a month passes and I come to the leader of the project because this voice actor is still smearing my name everywhere he has a chance to, so I told him the situation, what had happened and explained that we needed to at least put this to rest because it was making the whole group dynamic a mess.
He proceeded to insult me for about 45 minutes, calling me childish, manipulative, and then said very firmly that he was my BOSS, not colleague, boss, and that I was a garbage voice actor and I just ‘thought I was better than everyone else.”
He proceeded to make a public statement on his casting call that I was fired because I “insulted the boss” and was “manipulative”. I’ll post the screenshots on here if necessary to show that the whole time I’m just trying to have a conversation, and the kid keeps screaming insults at me. He also proceeded to say how everyone was working under him, not with him, so he has no respect for his people, and that just annoys me.
So I urge anyone in the voice acting community to stay away from this guy. I’ll just include this small screenshot here that I feel like sums up how he is:
So yeah, please stay away from this guy. He’s really an asshole, and I didn’t want to keep quiet about it lest he catch some other poor VA.
