The fall from grace of Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Rowland has been fast and unforgiving, with the voice actor and animator held up as one of the most popular figures in the geek community as recently as a few weeks ago.
As the accusations and accusations continue to pour in from all corners, Roiland’s precarious position becomes even more untenable, but it is beginning to look as if he has been sent away from Rick and Morty it was just the first step towards a full blacklist from a regular show.
Shortly after confirming that Adult Swim had parted ways with the disgraced Roiland, Squanch Games then revealed that he had resigned from the company. Furthermore, it was announced yesterday that his presence was no longer needed on both Opposite supply and Koala Manand the last of them had not recently appeared for the first time.
To bring his exile home, Hulu and 20th TV Animation – which it is worth noting that both are Disney subsidiaries in some way – published a sweet short statement explaining that the individual groups “ended our association with Justin Roiland. “
History has shown an alarming number of times that there is always a way back from these things, but where Roiland goes from here is anyone’s guess. This time last month he was on top of the world, only to have his entire existence collapse around him.
Rick and Morty it will survive, hopefully without Chris Pratt, but its co-creator has ruined the show’s name forever.
