Growly has punked out of MFF. He has continued to make excuses , but admits that he is basically concerned over his safety and sanity in privated tweets.
This is probably a wise idea. Unlike other instances, I do not believe that MFF had silently banned Growly. However, hotels are becoming increasingly concerned and annoyed by the presence of a convicted pedophile sex offender at all-ages conventions on their hotel property. I wonder why.
Marriott, the company hosting Furry Weekend Atlanta, is now reviewing incidences that have happened in their hotel, particularly the sex offender’s conspicuous presence. The effect this may have on other convention policies is yet unknown. More updates later.
