Justin Roiland who is the co-creator of the infamous animated show Rick and Morty has officially been dropped from the show. Roiland voiced both Rick and Morty on the show. Roiland has been charged with felony domestic abuse in Orange County. In the article it states, “The 42-year-old has pleaded not guilty and is awaiting trial after being charged with corporal injury and false imprisonment by menace, fraud, violence or deceit”. Back in 2020, the charges against Roiland were from an unidentified woman who was living and dating him at that time. His attorney made a statement expressing how Justin is innocent and that they will win the case. The show itself is already very controversial with many critics breathing down its back. Now with the news of Justin Roiland being charged with a felony it has really striked the critics. Marie Moore who is the senior vice president of communications at the show’s distributor Adult Swim made her statement regarding the charges made against Roiland. It is believed that Rick and Morty will continue with Roiland’s voice roles re-cast and he will retain his credit as co-creator. As of 2023, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office, all charges against Justin Roiland have been dropped as a result of insufficient evidence. It is unclear whether Adult Swim will allow Roiland to come back and voice Rick and Morty as well as the other shows and voice actors he has done. With that being said, the controversy wars on social media have begun. Some people believe he should be given a second chance since the charges were dropped while others believe he did it and was let off. With Rick and Morty being famous for its questionable and controversial episodes and Justin Roiland being the co-creator, it’s no surprise why many people don’t want him coming back at all.
