Adult Swim cuts all ties with Justin Roiland, Rick and Morty to be recast.

Wasn’t the accusations alleged domestic violence? Unless he came forward and admitted guilt (which would make this action warranted), it seems too soon for the courts to decide his innocence or guilt.
He has referred to underage girls (he's talking to) as jailbait.

Fuck him even if he is cleared on the abuse stuff.

I haven’t checked out the latest season yet but I’m not sure how the fuck you recast Rick and Morty on a show called…Rick and Morty lmfao.

Hope the guy isn’t really a shitbag but whatever it ends up being I guess it was fun while it lasted.

Because it's called 'Rick and Morty', not, 'Justin Roiland'. They've re-casted a number of main characters for cartoon tv shows over the years. I think they changed Dexter from Dexter's Laboratory and people hardly seemed to notice, or maybe they did, dunno. Anyway, you get a sound-alike or just 'soft-reboot' the voices in universe or something.

Anyway, saw this coming, but I figured they wouldn't kill it, since the Rick and Morty cow is one fat ass juicy cow to keep milking.

Be interesting to see how they resolve this going forward, but I'm ready to jump off the R&M train at anytime though.

Roiland has been charged felony domestic battery with corporal injury and felony false imprisonment. Criminal charges differ from the usual accusations that appear online in that a prosecutor has reviewed the evidence involved and believes there is enough to unanimously convince a jury of Roiland's guilt.

I absolutely agree that it is too early to assign guilt to Roiland. He is to be considered innocent until proven guilty. I also don't blame partners for severing ties legally due to the gravity of the charges. Roiland is probably still getting the money he is due he just won't be part of the property going forward.

Terrible. Hopefully they just go with different voices like Jack Black or something and explain it in universe instead of hiring some voice impersonator.

Justin Roiland is like 90% of that show anyways, it’ll be dead in a season. Then more people can go watch Velma!

Mindy Kaling is the Jane Doe and a mastermind.

Is this based on the same domestic violence stuff from a few years ago that just came to light, or is he suspected of smashing up someone new recently?

He is no longer involved with Squanch games either. Seeing those tweets, texts, and DM’s is damning by itself.

Was anyone watching this show for ricks stupid gravely voice? Really? Even mortys was kinda grating eventually. All you need is a fast talking douchey sound and anyone can be Rick.
 
As someone said, after S3, shit fell off hard. I don't even give a shit what is going on. They made good content and their heyday is over.
