‘Rick and Morty’ Creator Dan Harmon Announced Break From Twitter With A Tweet That Freaked Everyone Out

We all need a break sometimes, but it’s best to avoid inciting panic in your friends and family on your way onto the plane. Case in point – Dan Harmon of Rick & Morty and Community fame has done a lot of emotionally heavy interaction on Twitter, bouncing between harmful rants and genuine therapy in his engagements with fans. Well, it’s been a difficult few months, and this kind of vagueness on Twitter can really freak people out. 

Yeaaaahhhh. Unnerving. We’ve seen a ton of high-profile creatives committing suicide just this month, and this smacks of that flavor. Naturally, Harmon’s fans all kinda wigged out and his friends texted him directly. Big Bang Theory co-creator Bill Prady made a diplomatic inquiry that best sums up our reactions:

It’s good to discover your weaknesses, though doing so publicly can be worrisome. Harmon deleted the Tweet and offered this far more chipper announcement to soothe the troubled souls on his threads.

So yeah. Apparently, Dan’s headed off to Instagram because of just how bad Twitter is. You do you, Dan. The fans, justly mollified, offered him a pat on the back on his way out.

And several fans hoped it’d be a cue for a new season of Rick & Morty.

Working vacation or otherwise, we hope he gets all the time he needs.
