Rick And Morty Fans Are Harassing The Show's New Writers For A Disgusting Reason

Rick and Morty is arguably one of the best shows on television at the moment. It’s a series that manages to cover a broad range of topics, from the futility of existence, to fart jokes, and the possibility that your grandson is actually an evil version of you. Meeting another Rick and Morty fan used to mean that you were immediately going to share a connection, but now that some Rick and Morty fans are harassing writers, that’s all changed.

Shortly after the third season premiered in August of 2017, fans who felt that the addition of female writers would somehow negativley affect the series's quality began to rear their mutant heads. They released the writers' personal information onto the Internet, while penning myriad blog posts that all began, “Well, actually.” Seeing Rick and Morty fans trolling writers rather than engaging them in an honest conversation isn’t just disheartening, it’s downright infuriating.

Despite what the trolls say, female Rick and Morty writers are being harassed simply because they’re female. Even if the trolls didn't enjoy the third season, they would never pen Reddit posts wondering if it were the genders of the writers that were the problem. Instead of having an intellectual discussion about an intellectual show, they jumped straight to the nuclear option.

If you’re wondering how the show’s creators – Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland – reacted, or what the rest of the series' fandom thought of this gross reaction, you’re just going to have to keep reading.
