Controversy[edit]

Prior to the convention, Furrydelphia staff saw "a staggeringly high number of people speak out against the attendance of certain individuals[who?] for the general safety of all other attendees",[8] with evidence of "violent threatening behaviour from a few specific individuals." In the interest of public safety, and to create a "safe, enjoyable, and family friendly environment" for other attendees, these individuals were not permitted to attend the convention.[8]
