It’s a whole thing.
There are a large number of people angry within the industry regarding how Kameha Con’s US event handled this situation. We can only assume that these are the “events within the fandom” that the Kameha Con UK statement is referring to, but as they haven’t explicitly stated so, that’s just our best guess. Mignogna was also at one point listed as a guest at Kameha Con UK, but that appearance was cancelled.
We’ll keep tracking this story to see if anything else develops.
