I totally agree with many posts I found on Twitter that this is totally unprofessional, especially when they gave zero reasons why this happened.
In fact the only thing I found that might explain why was this…
Okay call me dumb, but if a panel was running longer than it should. Why couldn’t someone just go to where it was being held and shut it down.
That’s what MFF does all of the time, so there is no excuse.
I can tell you why no one did this, because the panel was popular and everyone was having a good time.
