In a flashback from 2012, in BoJack the Feminist, Vance is shown being arrested after trying to sexually harass a female police officer named Lindsay. The dash-cam footage shows him saying that he "hates Jews."
He later retracts that statement in The Deep Dive, which is a talk show hosted by A Ryan Seacrest Type. Vance has a Jewish friend, Mark Feuerstein, back him up on it by quoting the Torah—also because Vance apologized, and offered Mark a role in his new movie, Koufax.
It is revealed at the premiere of Koufax that he allegedly hit a prostitute with a baseball bat.
While he is on air, with a nasty message he left for his fourteen-year-old daughter via voice mail, which clearly described that he "hates women and Swedish people."
He later turns down the role, claiming he has found feminism, and he finds Philbert degrading and sexist. The role of Fritz goes to Mr. Peanutbutter.
