D.C Douglas in Hot Water Amid Twitter Screenshots
D.C. Douglas, the voice actor for Wesker allegedly leaked concept art of his character to a fan. The concept art is for the rumored upcoming Resident Evil 4 remake. It shows Wesker with text saying he is 43, the age he would be during the events of RE 4.
The Resident Evil 4 remake has been rumored for quite some time now. Capcom has already released remakes of the first three Resident Evil games, so naturally, four would be in the works next. Nonetheless, there has yet to be an official statement from Capcom giving any details on the next installment, and this leak is the first bit of news fans have recieved.
The leak would be a clear violation of the NDA he would have signed if/when he took on the role. According to the tweet, Douglas asked the fan to not share this as he could be sued. Douglas deleted his Twitter account some time after the alleged leaks were posted.
The leak isn’t the only thing he’s currently in hot water for. Twitter user @BewareCreepyVAs has compiled a series of screenshots of conversations between Douglas and some of his fans. The conversations show Douglas offering sexual favors to guarantee bookings at a conversion. He is also being accused of using his status as a voice actor to have sex with underage fans at conventions.
Nothing has officially been confirmed by Douglas regarding the underage sex accusations, but he has made posts about the controversy on Facebook. He claims that he has not leaked anything and is excitedly waiting for Resident Evil news like everyone else.
Capcom has remained silent on the topic for now, but they will have to act soon. It’s unlikely that Capcom will release any news on the rumored title until this mess is settled.
