On December 4th, 2022, a Twitter user by the name of edn posted screenshots which alleged that Rango had attempted to groom them at Ichibancon, and after edn reported Rango to the convention organizers, Rango threatened to assault, rape, and murder them.[1] Following the screenshots' release, Rango was banned indefinitely from the Georgia Smash scene.[2] In response to the allegations, Rango maintained he was innocent, claiming that he was impersonated, and that the impersonator directly harassed him as well, sharing his own screenshots.[3]

In July of 2023, it came to light that the police arrested the person behind the screenshots for identity fraud, with the police finding sufficient evidence that the screenshots used to defame Rango were fabricated. After the GeorgiaSmash officials were provided with proof of the arrest warrant and arrest record for this case, GeorgiaSmash would lift their ban of Rango.[4]
