Dan Harmon Apologizes For Almost Decade-Old Dexter Parody With Offensive Jokes

'I quickly realized the content was way too distasteful and took the video down immediately.

Rick and Morty co-creator Dan Harmon has left Twitter after an offensive 10-year-old sketch has been brought to light by the far-right corners of the internet. After a lengthy exchange on the platform, Harmon apologised, saying "I'm disgusted and sorry that I stained our show and your talent with my selfish, childish shit". Harmon, by contrast, has taken the full step of deleting his Twitter account after the actions of the conservative subreddit.

The show has been a big hit on Adult Swim, Cartoon Network's night-time haven for alternative and adult-oriented animation.

Several scenes that follow show Harmon's character drop his trousers and simulate rape on the doll.

The video in question, titled Daryl, stars Harmon in a five-minute comedy satire of Showtime serial killer drama Dexter.

'The offensive content of Dan's 2009 video that recently surfaced demonstrates poor judgement and does not reflect the type of content we seek out. Nobody should ever have to see what you saw and for that, I sincerely apologise'. Dan recognized his mistake at the time and has apologised. Now, just a day later, Harmon has issued an apology.

Harmon, who created the NBC comedy Community and co-created Adult Swim's wildly successful Rick and Morty animated series, has been no stranger to controversy for both the content of his series and his personal conduct.

If Harmon was going to get fired it should have been for harassing a female employee, not for a video that has always been public and reflective of his gross humor, as part of a Nazi purge of liberal creatives. In the wake of Disney's decision, many have come to Gunn's defense, including several members of the Guardians of the Galaxy cast and fellow filmmakers.

In the skit, Harmon portrays a shrink who proposes that "it's a little known fact that [babies] having bad things done to them has a cleansing effect on their psyche".

Megan Ganz, whose credits include "Modern Family", "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia", "Last Man on Earth" and more, called Harmon out for his previous behavior while they worked together. This news comes to us courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter.
