The New York Times article of 1/11/18 (click here for full article) demonstrates once again how a simple tweet can bring on a barrage of communication. This time Rick and Morty’s co-creator, Dan Harmon, ready to face his demons, hastened their arrival through Twitter, and apologized live on his Harmontown show. For the live apology at minute 18:40 click here.
I’m bombarded by “Rick and Morty” (a young adult, science fiction, animation show) daily at home from my pre-teen. So when an article linking Rick and Morty to sexual harassment crossed my desk – it got my full attention.
Turns out that Dan Harmon, Rick and Morty’s co-creator, issued a stunning and immensely thoughtful apology to Megan Ganz, his ex-employee and harassment victim. The extent of his live show apology, on his January 10th Episode, demonstrated more than just a therapy session of reflection on his part. Harmon’s heartfelt apology digs deep and attempts to deconstruct the emotional arc of his act of harassment – from his own psyche – over a 2-year period.
