The video made it over to Reddit's right-wing subreddit, The_Donald.
Some slammed Harmon for the "tasteless" video.
The creator of cult cartoon Rick and Morty has deleted his Twitter account after a disturbing nine-year-old "baby rapist" sketch resurfaced. Paedophilia, child rape or molestation is a serious matter that shouldn't be taken lightly, however, unfortunately, James Gunn and Dan Harmon are somehow insensitive towards this issue.
Rick and Morty, which was recently renewed for another 70 episodes by the network, is wildly popular and features Dan Harmon as one of the chief creative forces, along with Justin Roiland, who voices the two main characters.Читайте также: UK's plastic waste may be dumped overseas instead of recycled
'I quickly realized the content was way too distasteful and took the video down immediately. Luckily for fans of Rick and Morty, Adult Swim chose not to jump the gun in the same manner when an old video surfaced. The skit was created for Channel 101, an alternative edgy channel co-founded by Harmon that pushes the boundaries of good taste.
Update: Both Adult Swim and Harmon himself have now commented on the matter.
The live action video starts with Harmon addressing the audience. Polygon has a thorough breakdown of how the campaign against Harmon happened, and found a smoking-gun quote from a poster on 4chan: "If they get to take scalps for someone making racist jokes, we get to take scalps for them making pedophilia jokes".
Harmon, who also created the hit sitcom Community, has since apologised in a statement given to CNET. While far-right commentators are cherishing the new movement that seeks to target comedians and creators who are vehement critics of Trump, many others have said people like Gunn and Harmon are becoming scapegoats in a deeply polarized internet environment. "Nobody should ever have to see what you saw and for that, I sincerely apologize", Harmon said in a statement on Monday. I wanted to show her that if she didn't like being liked in that way, then oh boy, she should get over herself.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
