When a lot of the discussion before, during, and after San Diego Comic-Con as been about cosplay, harassment and consent, this drives home the point something needs to be done, and conventions need…
Not 100% certain of the veracity, but.
Yeah. I’ve seen this a couple of spots and am also unsure of 1) how much truth is in the story and 2) the actual circumstances.
But it’s worrisome when we come out of SDCC to word of this, a hit & run during the Zombie Walk leaving a 64-year-old woman with a broken arm (they keep saying the group she as with wasn’t part of the zombie walk, but it also reads like the group may have been ZW stragglers and the 8-year-old SD event is trying very hard to avoid association), and I’ve also been hearing rumors of a shooting (but when that’s also what they call filming a movie, it’s hard to track that news down).
I’ve been following the Zombiewalk incident and have seen too many videos. Most of the people there were bystanders / regular comic-con attendees. Only 1 or 2 people happen to be dressed up as zombies so it’s hard to say they are part of an almost 900 people walk…I’m just pissed the driver got off scott free even though he ran over an old lady and videos clearly show him as the initial aggressor. And oh, I’ve read mixed reports regarding whether he turned himself in or that he was stopped by a cop for speeding.
