Yeah I know he's still due his day in court so I'm curious to see what comes of that.

In any case it's unfortunate that he voices literally the main two characters plus multiple others at times

But more than that, he's a huge part of the creative team and direction. I'm pretty sure you can find some fairly spot on Rick and Morty impersonators but if the show is going to feel and be written radically differently and if the show hasn't seen a strong season in several seasons now...?

It's curtains.

How much was he still involved in the creative progress? He hasn't been credited in writing an episode since season 3.

I am not saying wether it did or didn't happen but there was a perfect opportunity to "believe her" and nothing was said till it would be a good time to get on the social credit train.

Geez, you just can't win anymore. Either woke idiots ruin our old series, or people creating all new series turn out to be creeps and assholes.

To be honest, I'm glad Eastman and Laird are both decent people. Maybe Laird is grumpy at times, but he seems like a stand up dude.

It sucks when people you admire and adore end up being horrible people in RL.

We are lucky that Kevin and Peter end up being two of the nicest people in the TMNT fandom, Unlike other fandoms who have people who done questionable things.

Yeah. I mean, I wouldn't call the creator and voices of Rick and Morty someone I'd admire, but I like the show, the concept and the characters, and it sucks to find out he's a creepy asshole.

Welp, better throw my Rick and Morty shirt into the fireplace. It’s getting colder and we need the heat anyway.

I'd wait and see the court proceedings before burning any Rick and Morty T-shirts, folks. Some women out there do some f***ed up stuff when they're feeling particularly vindictive, as I can personally attest to.

He runs the writing room with Harmon, doesn't he?

Even if he's innocent of the domestic violence, what about his creepy texts towards underage fans?

Believe me, I despise #metoo liars just as much as you do, and this could be just another Amber Heard situation in regards to the domestic abuse case. However, the text messaging thing is pretty disturbing, and I cannot give Justin a pass just because he created Rick and Morty. Grooming cannot be tolerated no matter who is doing it.

If I end up being wrong, then I will admit that I was wrong. But until then, no more wearing Rick and Morty shirts in my house.

Do we know that they're real? Because I can change a name in my phone and have a buddy send me a text as Joe Biden, right now, and produce a screenshot.

Go to YouTube look up the legion of skanks reading the texts, they are a group of comedians; very raunchy and dirty stuff, but it was so funny. If he's a creep let him get what's coming to him but without context I will withhold judgement.

Something I keep thinking about: the alleged incident occurred around three years ago. I wonder, did he really keep this to himself all that time? If he knew he was in the wrong, I could see that being the case. But if he felt like he was being wrongly prosecuted or something, he would probably confide in those he is close to. I'm just wondering if anyone else had this knowledge these three past years.

I dunno, the whole thing just makes me think about the whole "separating the art from the artist" debate

I've never watched Rick and Morty.

But I've watched all of Solar Opposites, for which he is a credited co-creator and lead actor.

Looks like Hulu/Disney/21st century have finally made the decision to cut ties with Roiland as well.

Everyone is cutting ties with him so fast, you think he voted for Trump and kissed JK Rowling.
