Some A**hole At Anime Expo Made A Hidden Camera Cleavage Vid, AX Responds

Dear Friends,

We have recently become aware that, during Anime Expo 2013, an individual not connected with the SPJA created an unauthorized and highly inappropriate hidden camera video and, worse, posted it on YouTube. It has since been removed from display.

Anime Expo, as well as all other SPJA events, are family-friendly and we do not take this action lightly — sexual harassment of any attendee in any way is unacceptable.

We have opened a case with the Los Angeles Police Department; if you are a victim of this unauthorized video or witnessed the recording, and would also like to make a report, please contact the LAPD Central Division at: 213-485-3294.

Our hearts and prayers go out to all of you, especially those who have been impacted by these disrespectful and violating actions. We will do all we can to assist those who have been wronged as this case moves forward, and are investigating what legal remedies the SPJA may have, if any, against those who violated the wonderful, joyous atmosphere of AX.

Very Respectfully,

Marc Perez
Chief Executive Officer
Society for the Promotion of Japanese Animation


Utter scum.  I hope the catch the bastard.

I would love to go to AX one day. I'm no where near it. I'm more near Otakon which I have no idea if I'll get to because I don't want to go by myself.

I know of this one guy at the cons that is a photographer. He'll mutter dirty stuff when taking girls pictures like "yeah baby. Work it. Pose for me baby." I hate that guy.

Adding this to the other harassment issues at cons this summer, I will be particularly vigilant at Otakon next month. We have to protect ourselves against this scum.

He was wearing a GoPro on his chest so when both people leaned in for the hug he'd get a close up shot of the girl's breast. It was pretty horrible.

this utter lack of respect for goodness sake. hell, the pervs are devolving.

I don't understand the mindset someone would need to have to think that this--or anything like this-- is okay.

these guys are so pathetic.

That's nasty.

I'm sure a lot of people will take offense to my comment, but this is why I don't wear skimpy cosplay without backup shorts underneath, or a higher-cut top to make sure I'm not hanging out. I'm not even that busty, but I'm not taking any chances.
