Controversy[edit]

Prior to the convention, Furrydelphia staff saw "a staggeringly high number of people speak out[citation needed] against the attendance of certain individuals who identified with particular hate groups.[who?] For the general safety of all other attendees",[4] with evidence of "violent threatening behavior 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.[4]
