It was reported on January 24, that Adult Swim and other networks no longer wanted an association with Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland; due to his controversy surrounding domestic violence charges, and multiple other accusations. This is a follow up article to the outcome.
These charges have now been dropped against Justin Roiland, as there is a lack of evidence.
Kimberly Edds, a spokesperson for Orange County District Attorneys office has said “This case was dismissed as a result of insufficient evidence to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt”.
Soon after this verdict, Justin Roiland took to social media, to release a statement: “I have always known that these claims were false – and I never had any doubt that this day would come. I’m thankful that this case has been dismissed but, at the same time I’m still deeply shaken by the horrible lies that were reported about me during this process. Most of all, I’m disappointed that so many people were so quick to judge without knowing the facts, based solely on the word of an embittered ex trying to bypass due process and have me “canceled.” That it may have succeeded, even partially, is shameful. However, now that the legal case has ended I’m determined to move forward and focus both on my creative projects and restoring my good name”.
