Shocking news: ‘Rick and Morty’ creator Justin Roiland dropped by Hulu after domestic abuse charges surface – Find out what happens next

Hulu and Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim have both ended their association with Justin Roiland, the co-creator and voice actor of the popular animated shows “Rick and Morty” and “Solar Opposites,” after felony domestic abuse charges against him were revealed. In January 2020, Roiland was charged with two counts of felony domestic violence against a former girlfriend. He has pleaded not guilty and is awaiting trial.

Both shows, “Solar Opposites” and “Koala Man” will continue without him. However, the future of his involvement in “Rick and Morty” is uncertain. Adult Swim has announced that the series will continue without him, but have not yet announced who the new vocal performers will be. This news has left fans of the show wondering how it will be affected by Roiland’s absence. “Rick and Morty” has been a critical and commercial success and has a devoted fanbase, so it’s unclear how the show will fare without Roiland’s involvement.

Roiland’s departure from these shows and company also raises questions about the entertainment industry’s response to allegations of abuse. Roiland’s charges went unreported until NBC News ran a story on them earlier this month. Some critics argue that the industry should have taken action earlier, while others argue that Roiland should be given due process and that the shows should continue without him until the legal process is completed. However, regardless of the outcome, it’s important to acknowledge the gravity of the allegations and the impact they have on the victims.
