Justin Roiland, co-creator of ‘Rick and Morty’, was acquitted of the domestic violence charges against his ex-partner last March. However, there are other accusations of alleged sexual abuse with fans, including minors.
The last time Roiland went to trial, the authorities determined that the charges were dropped “due to lack of sufficient evidence beyond a reasonable doubt”. Now, it seems there is another serious accusation.
According to NBC News, based on interviews with 11 women and non-binary people, Justin exchanged messages with some of his fans between 2013 and 2022; nine of these testimonies showed that the celebrity turned the messages into sexual exchanges. Three of these people claimed to be as young as 16 years old when it all started.

The aforementioned network claims to have photographs, videos, social media posts, emails, and airline and Uber ticket receipts related to the issue, which prove Roiland’s behavior.
A woman claims Roiland forced her to perform oral sex on him once she refused. Another said she felt Justin took advantage of her, as she recalls having sex with him and another woman after drinking alcohol and being involved in an unequal financial dynamic; the experience left her mentally traumatized, she claims.
In both cases, the women revealed to have messages where Roiland apologized for his attitude
Meanwhile, a couple of people posted on Twitter that the creator of Rick and Morty had referred to them with inappropriate language when they were 16 years old when they started communicating. Another woman corroborated the story of a woman who was forced to perform oral sex on him after buying her clothes and inviting her to eat and drink.
It seems there is more problems ahead for the Rick & Morty co-creator and voice actor who was fired on the spot after allegations of domestic violence.
