10 Biggest Rick & Morty Controversies

With great success, comes great responsibility.

For a show that spawned from a deeply unsettling Back to The Future parody, Rick and Morty has done pretty well for itself. The show has become an internet sensation, with merchandise infiltrating malls and high streets across the globe. As the show gets more and more popular, it opens itself up to scrutiny and its influence can have some dire consequences.

Despite having aired less than forty episodes (at time of writing), the show has hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons on more than one occasion. As they head into production on season five, creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland need to think carefully on the impact the show is having.

The two are no strangers to controversy, both have been fired from their previous ventures and aren't exactly known for their politically correct sensibilities.

Harmon was famously removed from Community after a very public situation involving Chevy Chase, alongside sexual misconduct allegations with a co-writer on the show. While Roiland was renowned for creating questionable material for shock value, including having Marty McFly perform oral sex on Doc Brown in that parody we mentioned earlier.
