Rick and Morty co-creator Dan Harmon has deleted his Twitter account following the reemergence of a controversial 2009 sketch video.
The video, titled Daryl, is a parody of the serial killer drama Dexter. In the video, Harmon breaks into a house and molests a baby doll, making it clear why the video has raised eyebrows across the internet.
Harmon, who created the NBC comedy Community and co-created Adult Swim’s wildly successful Rick and Morty animated series, has been no stranger to controversy for both the content of his series and his personal conduct.
Cartoon Network parent company Turner, as well as representatives for Harmon, didn’t immediately respond to request for comment.
Harmon’s departure from Twitter comes in the wake offor tweets he had made years ago making light of pedophilia and child rape.
For many fans, repercussions like the ones Gunn faced are too extreme for the sketch video, which comes as little surprise to them given Harmon’s long-established humor.
And far-right commentator Mike Cernovich joined in on the response, unsurprisingly, given his role in spreading the tweets that prompted Gunn’s firing.
