Pensacola Police investigating bomb threat made towards Pensacon

Northwest Florida

Pensacola, Fla (WKRG-TV)- Pensacola Police say they are investigating a bomb threat towards Pensacon.

Police say they have added extra officers to the event that takes place at the Pensacola Bay Center this weekend. Police say there are no changes to the schedule at this time.

Pensacon officials have also tightened security because of threats to one of their guests who allegedly accused a well known voice actor of sexual misconduct.

In a Facebook post, Pensacon officials say voice actress Monica Rial recieved verbal and physical threats for accusing voice actor Vic Mignogna of sexual misconduct. Pensacon officials do not name Mignogna in the post, but Facebook users identify the accused voice actor as Mignogna.

Some people on Facebook think Pensacon officials are trying to limit the free speech of people who support Mignogna. 

Other people going to Pensacon do not agree.

“Yes to free speech but this is not the time,” Mae Solchenberger said. “There’s a time and a place for everything but going to an event, if you have a problem with that person you should talk to them directly.”
