Just a day before the allegations came to light, voice actor Elliot Gindi said he was “taking a break”. After the allegations came to light, Gindi acknowledged and admitted some of them in a lengthy apology.

To say that I am angry, disappointed and heartbroken about all of this would be an understatement. My heart goes out. to everyone who has been the victim of this unacceptable and inappropriate behavior. Personally, I want to stand up for those who have come forward and brought this to light.”
