Another Twitter account bites the dust after a decade-old video where Rick and Morty co-creator, Dan Harmon, reenacts a baby being raped resurfaces and goes viral.
The video begins with Dan saying, “Hi, I’m Dan Harmon. You’re about to watch my controversial new pilot “Daryl”. Seemingly to be a parody of Showtime’s popular crime show Dexter, the video shows Harmon, playing the part of “Daryl”, a therapist who rapes the infants belonging to his patients. “I rape babies,” Harmon says directly into the camera. Daryl goes on to claim he can stop people from becoming serial killers just by raping them when they’re babies. One of the scenes includes Harmon’s character climbing through the window of one of his patients, pulling down his pants and crawling on top of the patient’s sleeping infant (a baby doll in the skit).
While attending Comic-Con weekend in San Diego with fellow “Rick and Morty” co-creator, Justin Roiland, Harmon’s video “Daryl” resurfaced and is now sitting at 50,000 views on BitChute.
“Daryl” came out in 2009 on Channel 101, along with Harmon’s other shorts that included one from 2008 with Justin Roiland. Channel 101 was created by Harmon and his writing partner Rob Schrab as a monthly film festival where pilots were chosen by the audience, and later created. Comedians such as Jack Black, Bob Odenkirk and Sarah Silverman also made appearances on Channel 101. The very first pilot for Rick and Morty, which included the “Rick” character asking the “Morty” character to lick his testicles–originated on the platform. In the show, Rick is Morty’s grandfather.
As soon as the video resurfaced, it took off on the web and Harmon immediately deleted his Twitter account. The video itself is beyond graphic, with explicit language and nudity.
Rick and Morty is an animated science fiction program that airs on Cartoon Network’s late night adult-themed programming, Adult Swim. The show follows the two characters through their adventures both domestic and interdenominational, with each episode including very “adult” humor.
Dan Harmon is not only the co-creator of Rick and Morty, but also the executive producer of Good Game, Harmontown and Community. In January, Harmon was accused of sexually harassing Megan Ganz, a Community writer after she took to Twitter to confront him.
Harmon is another notch on the belt of recent high profile comedians, actors and other Hollywood elite who have had pedophilia-related tweets brought back up from their past. With Harmon deleting his Twitter account, one can only imagine the vault of pedophilia laced tweets that may have resided there.
Just last week “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn was fired from working on the third installment of the movie, by Walt Disney Studios after thousands of tweets about child molestation and rape came to light that were authored by Gunn.
Comedian Michael Ian Black also had several tweets resurface that included sexual innuendos about children, including what he referred to as “jokes” about having sleepovers with young girls and ‘quick’ intercourse with a baby.
With the pilot “Daryl” being made in 2009, one would think that Cartoon Network president, Christina Miller would have vetted Harmon and known of his sick and twisted idea of comedy before allowing Rick and Morty to run on their channel. “Rick and Morty” was renewed earlier this year by Adult Swim for another 70 episodes. It’s yet to be seen if Cartoon Network will take any action with the shows airing on their channel.
