What is it with all these Hollywood creeps that think it is so darn funny to post stories, pictures, and jokes about raping or sexually abusing kids? This time it is Justin Roiland, the co-creator of Cartoon Network’s Rick and Morty cartoon show.
Roiland posted a drawing depicting a nude below the waist Barron Trump who was 11 years old when it was tweeted. He’s 12 now. The caption on the drawing reads: “Donald trump forcing baron to play VR, while homer and Peter eat smurfs nearby.”
Roiland tweeted the image back in April of 2017 but it only came to the public eye this month (the genitalia has been covered for this posting):
As soon as people finally began noticing the tweet, Roiland suddenly deleted the thing trying to cover up the disgusting tweet after a post by Gateway Pundit. He has not publicly stated why he thought it was funny to show a sexually abusive image of an 11-year-old boy nor why he so suddenly deleted it after leaving it up for over a year.
Thus far, Cartoon Network has not responded about the tweet.
This is the second Rick and Morty star who got himself in trouble over “jokes” about child abuse. Only days ago, Roiland’s cohort, Dan Harmon, deleted his entire Twitter account after a “satire” video showing him raping a baby doll was discovered.
Cartoon Network condemned Harmon’s “funny” video, but is not apparently taking any action against Harmon saying, “Dan recognized his mistake at the time and has apologized.”
Harmon also apologized for the video:
In 2009, I made a ‘pilot’ which strove to parody the series Dexter and only succeeded in offending. I quickly realized the content was way too distasteful and took the video down immediately. Nobody should ever have to see what you saw and for that, I sincerely apologize.
According to Polygon, the video is described as a spoof of the serial killer series Dexter:
“Daryl” is a two-part spoof on Showtime’s popular series “Dexter” that aired in 2009 during a monthly comedy sketch festival called Channel 101. The first part of the sketch, and the scene that people have most called out, stars Harmon. Throughout, his character is seen breaking into an apartment, pulling down his pants and simulating sex with a plastic baby doll. The title card that plays overtop says, “Showtime presents, Daryl.”
