Other controversies and impacts on Rick and Morty season 7

The show Rick and Morty have become a billion-dollar franchise. These accusations have caused the fans to rethink their stand on the creators. #CancelRickandMorty was trending on Twitter and Facebook for a while. Along with the hashtag, a video of Dan Harmon raping a doll from years ago started to go viral. Although Harman apologized for the video a while back, it did not affect the hashtag. Fans of the show are unhappy and hoping that Adult swim comes up with a way to stop the show from a ring further. The show had nine seasons scheduled, with the sixth season wrapping up in December 2022.

Along with the video of Dan Harman, some screenshots of Roiland have been making the rounds on the internet. The screenshots showed Roiland sending outrageous texts to a teenage girl calling her cuss words. The account of the person that first circulated the screenshots then deleted them and made their account private. This didn’t stop the screenshots from going viral. The show’s fans became outraged and demanded the show be canceled.

The “Rick and Morty” series created an excellent following ranging from adult women and men aged  18 to 38. The series has given rise to many memes and fan fiction. The controversies among the creators may have had some effect on the show. Until the next season is announced, it would be hard to say what adult swim has decided for its audiences.
