Erica Lindbeck leaves Twitter after harassment over AI
The American voice actor Erica Lindbeck, who has a long history of voice work in movies, video games, and TV shows, recently deleted her Twitter account. The choice was made following a contentious debate over a Futaba AI cover video that used her voice without her consent.
While Lindbeck's supporters stood by her, denouncing the unlawful commercialization of her voice, other people on Twitter accused her of starting a harassment campaign over what they saw as a comical video.
Erica Lindbeck exits Twitter due to controversial AI argument
Lindbeck left Twitter after asking a YouTuber to remove a clip in which her character's voice was artificially reproduced without her permission. There was a flood of support from her fans in response to this unauthorized use of her voice for profit. They criticized the video producers for trying to capitalize on Lindbeck's skill without getting the required consent.
Others objected to Lindbeck's suggestion, but the YouTuber complied. They thought it was ridiculous, uploaded the video again, and yelled at the actor. Lindbeck made the decision to stop using Twitter rather than let things continue.
Josh Keaton, who is well-known for his work in Spectacular Spider-Man, defended Lindbeck and backed her right to request the removal of artificial intelligence (AI)-generated video that uses her voice. The voice of Marvel's Spider-Man, Yuri Lowenthal, reiterated this attitude with a straightforward "Seconded" remark.
- Voice actress makes abundantly clear that she does not consent to her voice being utilized for AI.
- People scrape her characters’ voices & force her to sing songs or even say disparaging things.
- She asks people to report videos like this.
And SHE’S the bully? https://t.co/uT5bIRgV3Y

There are several copyright concerns that must be resolved as artificial intelligence (AI) technology advances. Finding the rightful owner of any AI-created artwork is one of the major issues.
The usage of copyrighted materials in AI training is another copyright issue that needs to be addressed. Large datasets of text, photos, and other data are frequently used to train AI models. This information might be covered by copyright.
An AI model may be used to produce derivative works that violate the copyrights of the owners of the original material if it is trained on copyrighted data. There is no simple solution to this complex problem.Advertisement
