Christopher Robin Sabat (2019-present)
Christopher Robin Sabat (born April 22, 1973) is an American voice actor, line producer, and ADR director who works with Funimation and Okratron 5000.
Sabat has provided voices for English-versions of Japanese anime and video games, including a variety of Dragon Ball characters, such as Vegeta, Piccolo, Yamcha, and others. His roles include Daisuke Jigen in Lupin the Third, Kazuma Kuwabara in Yu Yu Hakusho, Alex Louis Armstrong in Fullmetal Alchemist, Tatsumi Saiga in Speed Grapher, Kurogane in Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle, All Might in My Hero Academia and Roronoa Zoro in the Funimation dub of One Piece. In video games, he voices Alex D in Deus Ex: Invisible War, Rundas in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Garland in Dissidia: Final Fantasy and Captain Smiley and Star in Comic Jumper. He is also the founder and director of Okratron 5000, an audio production company that provides support for some of Funimation's dubbing titles.
Why He Sucks Now
- He had a casting couch at both Funimation and Okratron 5000 where female voice actresses would receive work for sexual favors. If they declined, they would not land voice roles, explaining why Stephanie Nadolny, Linda Young, Laura Bailey, and Tiffany Vollmer did not reprise their Dragon Ball Z roles in Dragon Ball Kai. This earned him recent infamy as the Harvey Weinstein of anime dubbing, and he would be considered a mild sexual harasser.
- Together with Sean Schemmel, Cynthia Cranz, Chris Rager, and Sonny Strait, he used the Dragon Ball Z intellectual property to make his own rendition involving rape, incest, and homophobia.
- Going back to the homophobia, remember that he has collaborated with openly gay voice actors like J. Michael Tatum and Chris Patton. What would they think?!
- He conspired to ensure Vic Mignogna, his co-worker, would never become a director.
- His influence in the anime industry allowed him to pull strings and spearhead the #KickVic movement, which may explain why Tatum, a former proud Vic Mignogna defender, turned his back against him. It's also implied that his relations with Rooster Teeth caused Vic to lose his job as the voice of Qrow.
- He's also the reason Stephanie Nadolny quit voice acting, as she was replaced as K.O. in OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes only 5 episodes after, and she exposed him as a bully ever since she refused his sexual advances back in 2007. Sabat demanded the replacement at the cost of Funimation cutting ties with Cartoon Network.
- He threatened Todd Haberkorn and Chuck Huber that they would lose their careers simply for supporting Vic.
- He told people not to believe everything Vic says as he's just an actor. Sabat's an actor too. Should people disbelieve everything he says too? This proves his hypocrisy.
- Again, adding to his hypocrisy, one of the allegations against Vic Mignogna was homophobia. But Sabat and other voice actors mocked Vic for wearing "gay" clothes. This isn't even a pot and kettle situation. It's self-projecting.
- Not to mention, Vic was also fired from Funimation and Rooster Teeth following sexual harassment allegations. Yet Sabat and other VAs ignored and by extension, violated Funimation's workplace policy against sexual violence. Not that the company even cared. They didn't give a handbook!
- He used autism as an insult to refer to Vic's fans, who were also his own fans as well before this entire drama started!
- Unlike John Kricfalusi, he got no comeuppance for mistreating the employees from the company (again, not that the company cared.) He would also be considered the John K of Funimation, with some exceptions, like not being a pedophile.
- He also became Alfred R. Kahn dialed up to 11 for making worse changes to dubs by putting politically correct lines along with Jamie Marchi and some others.
- He can't handle criticism.
- Despite his wrongdoings, he's still an amazing voice actor and voice director.
- His anger at Kiwi Farms is justified as they doxxed him and his family, and doxxing is wrong.
- He used to rock back then before the controversy. In fact, he helped anime dubs back in his early life.
- Unlike Sean Schemmel, he approves of the TeamFourStar parody dub of Dragon Ball Z Abridged and even did a guest voice in Hellsing Ultimate Abridged under a pseudonym.
