Rick and Morty fans’ Szechuan sauce meltdown shines a light on toxic fandom

  • Vox

    As Aja Romano notes, “one especially vocal subset of the Rick and Morty fan base comprises a perfect storm of insular geek culture and trolling.” Romano adds that as the McDonald’s debacle shows, “it has undeniably gotten more difficult, in recent years, to detangle modern geek culture and fandom from the toxic substrains of nihilism, entitlement, trolling, misogyny, and often a general lack of empathy that fuel its darkest corners.” ALSO: McDonald’s customer sells nuggets dipped in Szechuan sauce for $10 apiece.
