Justin Roiland has had a rough few weeks, with several people claiming that the show's creator acted inappropriately toward them, with some posting pictures of messages they claim Roiland sent. Adult Swim has released their statement today, confirming that the program would continue to run without Roiland's input.
Roiland was charged with one felony count of domestic assault with corporal injury and one felony count of false imprisonment by menace, violence, fraud, and/or deceit following a 2020 incident involving an unidentified woman who Roiland was dating at the time. Many others have come forward to express their opinions about his interactions with Roiland.
Many followers of the creator's work have been waiting to see how platforms that host, produce, and fund Roiland's work would deal with the situation and what positions they might adopt. This is especially true with Rick and Morty, because Roiland is the show's co-creator and many of its most well-known supporting characters.
Adult Swim, the network that produces Rick and Morty, made a statement through their official Rick and Morty Twitter account today. This statement took the form of a simple graphic that read:
It's unknown who will take over Roiland's roles in the show currently. Nor when Rick and Morty season 7 will be released.
