I've got a friend who works as VA handler at various Florida cons. It is a WELL KNOWN scenario that Vic is a total creep to the point where female con workers are warned of it ahead of time. This has been going on for years.
If anyone here has ever worked in any entertainment venue, you as staff will be told which guests/entertainers should be avoided by your female colleagues. I imagine it's the same working for the convention circuit.
From looking at this thread, I am extremely confused why anyone would dismiss the idea that a massive wrong'un could run amuck in the entertainment industry for decades without any real comeback. Two words: Jimmy Savile.
