Turns out Simka really did force his workers to invest in the internal Slack channel of 16+ "Bunny Bravo" crowdfunding team members [Op-Ed]
Posted on November 9, 2017 at 11:40am PST SUBMITTED SCREENSHOT RELEASED
Several screenshots, emails, and texts submitted by disgruntled workers hired by Mychal Simka to perform services for the "Bunny Bravo" campaign are now being released.
These individuals state that they "worked under the pretense of Mychal's contractual promises to pay them once the $500k was raised" (which it was, in full, because of their tireless efforts working to promote the campaign). They then got stiffed by Simka Entertainment, despite the fact that his well-known Crowdfunding Attorney had drawn up the vendor contracts that Mychal signed.
Ask yourself: would a responsible crowdfunding sponsor actually create an entire mission-critical effort via a "Slack Channel"? C'mon, the guy forced workers to ANNOUNCE once they invested, SHAMING THEM into PAYING HIM, when HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN PAYING THEM.
Simka Entertainment (as shown above) literally took a tally of all of his workers that have invested displayed it in public Slack forum to humiliate and badger the workers have not yet ponied up the cash, whether or not they wanted to invest in Adventures of Bunny Bravo.

I guess the old idiom “fake it til you make it” has crossed over into crowdfunding, where @MychalSimka told Bunny Bravo investors that he was the brain behind “Birds of Paradise”. Wrong, #deceptive and downright sick. It was a @Lionsgate / @GrindstoneEnt film NOT @SimkaEnt pic.twitter.com/vTS6wQHtnX— JOBS Act Title III Predatory Financing (@RegCF) December 13, 2017
