Dan Harmon Deletes Twitter After Creepy Baby Doll Rape Short Resurfaces
Published Jul 23, 2018Last week, James Gunn was fired from the Guardians of the Galaxy movie when a series of creepy pedophile jokes resurfaced on his Twitter page. Rather than weather a similar storm, Rick & Morty boss Dan Harmon deleted his Twitter altogether after a creepy short film resurfaced.
The five-minute comedy short is called Daryl and was released on Channel 101 in 2009. In the clip, Harmon rubs his genitals on a baby doll.
The video resurfaced while Harmon was attending Comic-Con with his Rick & Morty co-creator Justin Roiland. Its content has stirred up criticism, with many believing he was making light of pedophilia. Rather than respond to the controversy, Harmon has deleted his entire Twitter page.
As per Indiewire, the video is still available to view here.
