Last year, two of my best guy friends showed up on Halloween dressed as cheap imitations of Back to the Future characters. I was swiftly informed, however, that they weren't Back to the Future but Rick and Morty from their favorite show, aptly titled Rick and Morty.
When I die….play Rick and Morty's theme song as you lower me into the ground Abeg

What the fuck is Rick and Morty? I wondered.
Rick and Morty is another cartoon that guys can't get enough of except the guys who like Rick and Morty are a step above basement dwelling goblins.
The guys who like Rick and Morty consider themselves slightly more intellectually superior than South Park and possibly have girlfriends but also don't miss a chance to mansplain anything they can. They also don't think women are funny.

Rick and Morty is basically a cult for misogynists and Bernie Bros and this is why it sucks:
They went a full two seasons without a single female writer which screams: we couldn't get laid in high school and sort of hate women but pretend we love them but omg we just smoked a J and how funny is this weird new bit we came up with?
Rick isn't aged appropriately
Rick is supposed to be a grandpa???? But looks too young to be a grandpa??? Also, though like he's weirdly hot for a grandpa cartoon and I'm uncomfortable with that thought.
Okay idk maybe it's me but when I go to watch a cartoon I want to be uplifted and feel as though my adult life isn't complete and total shit. Rick and Morty can be super depressing? And make you very aware of your mortality and like, yes it's funny but also why are you making me this depressed you're a cartoon???
i seriously refuse to watch rick and morty bc the fans disgust me and if its in the same category as south park and family guy… no

Morty is the worst
He's a killjoy most of the time. Idk kid maybe have a little fun? You won't be young forever so enjoy your wacky grandpa and your wacky adventures because soon enough you're going to be an adult with bills and an empty fridge and friends who are all happily married while you're still masturbating to stepdad porn.
Female prizes are a thing
Morty gets prizes at the end of some episodes and they're usually girls like Jessica. It promotes their weird anti-women agenda that I've heard about from multiple sources. Idk maybe don't use women as prizes? Just a thought, sirs.
Boys talk about it too much
The main reason this show sucks is because it's all guys want to talk about or joke about and I'm so over hearing about Pickle Rick or Morty or Rick or the Multiverse or how it's brilliant or blah blah blah.
We get it. This show makes you feel ~seen~ but every conversation does not need to be about Rick and Morty. There are plenty of other annoying shows to talk about, I promise.
Serena Williams’ daughter already has her own Instagram page and the ratio game is strong
I don’t usually follow babies, but . . .
by Caroline Phinney
Last week Serena Williams and her husband, Alexis Ohanian, welcomed a new, soon to be tennis star into the world, and Serena's Instagram story about it melted the hearts of fans everywhere. Never one to skip a beat when it comes to getting ahead, Serena decided her daughter, Alexis, already had enough fans to justify…
Jennifer Lawrence violently attacked a fan who asked for a selfie, and she thinks it’s adorable…?
Sorry, nothing about this is funny
by Amanda Ross
I know Jennifer Lawrence's entire brand is about being ~qUirKy!~ and just like you! and pizza! or whatever, but absolutely nothing about this recent "fun and hilarious" anecdote is funny or cute. On yesterday's episode of Late Night With Seth Meyers, Jennifer proceeds to tell the story of a "bar fight" she got into. Only…
We need to talk about JK Rowling’s weird Twitter presence
Oh no baby what is you doing
by Roisin Lanigan
In the aughts, JK Rowling was nothing short of a god. She’d created a magical world, held us all enraptured while she finished book after book, worked with the directors on film after film. As a kid, it was generally accepted that her attention to detail and nuance were amazing. It couldn’t be further away…
