There have been some rumors circulating Viv IRC around this the past few days, but it is now official:
Anthrocon's board, reportedly much to the chagrin of Kage, voted to remove 2 from the schedule at the con after several years worth of bizarre behavior from him on social media. Naturally this is the SJW's fault.
Between this and what I can only assume is a reference to the Tonic bar closing, some furries are wondering "Why even go?" because this fandom revolves around the cult of personality of a fandom "comic" and overpriced, watered down alcohol.
2 further tried to sway his fan's emotional response by mentioning how the popular fursuiter Telephone had recently called him "in tears" saying she "didn't feel welcome at Anthrocon anymore
". My informants have told me this may have something to do with Telephone finding out that Anthrocon won't give her what amount to "exclusive rights" to host "angel dragon" panels (the species she created).
The Furry Raiders
have voiced their support for 2 in these trying times.
There have been some other rumblings over this regarding Kage fighting about this with the Board, which is certainly one of the first times we've heard of the board not rubber stamping his ideas without pushback. Within the past few years there has been a few changes on the board, and it's been theorized that this could be the first sign that an upheaval may be beginning.
