Everyone has known this for years. Harmon has apologized for it profusely and is not interested in re-visiting it just because cancel culture discovered it now.

There's almost nothing in that article to substantiate the claim in the headline or to backup the idea that there is any sort of push to "cancel" the man in question.

It's great clickbait, though, because they know Rick and Morty fans tend to be obsessed rage-aholics with a lot of time on their hands.

Rick and Morty has been cancelled on numerous realities for all sorts of reasons. If it gets culture cancelled on this one, that's not in any way special.

There was a global trending topic on Twitter about it yesterday morning. So it made the top 10.

It lasted about an hour.

In an infinite number of universes it's been cancelled an infinite number of times.

I am not!  You're picking on me!  I feel persecuted! Take that back!

Now I'm required to spend the next 28 hours tracking you across media platforms making sure everyone knows you're a Total Jerry until you apologize! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!1!!1

Can we cancel rick and morty for having an obnoxious Dan base instead?

If you are a Rick and Morty fan, there's probably next to nothing that will offend you - at least when it comes to dark humor.

So, anybody pushing this isn't a Rick and Morty fan. It's not going to get cancelled, it's like all those times South Park was "going to get cancelled" because of them pushing the envelope. It's their farking job.

You mean that ballsack-for-lips thing they always do?

This was stupid 2 years ago and it's just as dumb now.

Zomg!!!! Dan Harmon made a joke about how silly the premise of Dexter is! Baby raper confirmed!!!!

Hope these kids never find out about GWAR.

Yeah sure and Gina Carano is getting cancelled because wharrgarbl SoyBoy snowflake triggered shoot my dick off incel smash that like button.

Mr. JellyBean is one of the rawest, most cringe-inducing scenes in cartoons....and I think it needs to be shown so that people know how to deal with these situations.

I hate that I enjoy these two things, but get lumped in with the 10% virulent, screaming assholes who dominate the online discourse.

" 'People' want to cancel"?

Are these the same folks that are always talking to Trump?
 
2020-08-14 1:11:35 PM  
Cancelling Dan Harmon for being a shiatty person and an unapologetic drunk seems utterly reasonable.

Cancelling Rick & Morty to watch manchildren break down seems utterly funny.

The jokes on them. By the time the next season comes out, we'll have hit the inevitable heath-death of the Universe.
 
2020-08-14 1:14:12 PM  
While heath-death sounds like an admirable goal at a baskin-robbins, the word I was striving for, was heat.
 
2020-08-14 1:14:36 PM  
So wait, this is something that, not only did we know about, was still in a public space, had an apology by the creator of it, and is linked to the QAnon morons using the #save the children bull?

Why even use the language of the right with "cancel culture" here?  Why not call it what it is and show that it is bad faith morons trying to find another means to drive a wedge?
 
2020-08-14 1:14:41 PM  
Sorry guys, this goes both ways. When someone has apologized for something, but you still don't like them, it's all "Cancel! Cancel!", all the time. Same if it happened long in the past. Don't like it? Then don't be all gung ho about supporting the stupid shiat in the first place.

Singular timeline events like this SpaceX launch tend to attract time travelers, Morty. It's no coincidence this cancellation is occuring at the same time. We need to watch our backs, you got it???


Oooh jeeez I don't like this!
 
2020-08-14 1:15:14 PM  
Also, I've never heard of this. Might look it up later, might not.

Mission accomplished, morons.

I really don't care about this one way or the other, but I think that him "not wanting to revisit it" doesn't amount shiat. It's not really up to him.

Yup. This is QAnon trying to keep the real topic of child exploitation trending to give legitimacy to their make believe version of it.

And I'm embarrassed so many of my friends aren't clueing into this and forwarding this stuff not realizing who they're helping.

And it's only "cancel culture" when liberals do it.

When conservatives do it, its "patriotic".
 
2020-08-14 1:19:51 PM  
Good comedians push boundaries. Sometimes they go too far.

Deal with it.

The fact that Harmon was aware that he made a mistake and apologized for it is enough for me.

I'm a huge Rick and Morty fan. I can quote entire episodes. (That's how awesome my life is!)

There's plenty of stuff that offends me. And then you know what I do? Deal with it. Because that's what you do if you're into free speech.

If it's popular enough it won't get cancelled or it'll get shopped to another network where it will be allowed to do what it does without concern for popular opinion.

Conservatives keep trying to do this nonsense, but all they do is wind up entrenching the thing they're trying to use to get back at society.
