Walker Stalkers LLC’s “Fan Fest Nashville” is currently taking place right now, and from all accounts it has been a complete disaster. The event, which was originally supposed to take place last August, has seen a number of guest cancellations, an almost empty venue, and (if what’s been alleged on social media is true) is only functioning because Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman of all people has stepped up to pay the bills.

We have not been able to confirm this, but allegedly Walker Stalkers LLC owner James Frazier is out of the country for personal reasons. Instead the onsite staff is being managed by Michael DeVault. DeVault, some of you may remember, resigned as CEO of Walker Stalkers LLC after only one week on the job. DeVault had taken over after Frazier had resigned as CEO in the wake of an incident with guest Angel Theory at the company’s Atlanta event. It hasn’t been clear who was running their events since then, but most had assumed Frazier (who still owns the company) had resumed leadership.
Yes – 3 Sources confirmed. 5 ppl are at a hotel with DeVault (former interim CEO – LMAO), but everyone else left and are not returning. It's like, a switch FINALLY flipped in their head. LOL.

Went to #fanfest because my parents got gold VIP but a lot of the celebs they wanted to see backed out. Complete waste of time. Parents bought $500 tickets for literally nothing as they're not checking badges and VIP means literally NOTHING. Even the "gifts" aren't here for VIP

They also aren’t checking cosplay weapons. I walked by several cops with my crossbow and not one stopped. They don’t care. I’m sorry you had to deal with that.

I don’t think anyone would be surprised if Fan Fest Nashville turned out to be the last convention this company ever runs.
Can you clarify? Bragging rights that a guest had to pay for food, rooms, and transportation for everyone? That people who paid $1100+ got nothing more than those let in for free? Or that you assisted with JF robbing others of thousands of dollars again?

This is the most disappointed i've been in a long time. I'm not even going to the Sunday event. I will take this as a loss and find a better convention…this is is for FanFest…
