Council of Ricks, "Intellectuals"
Rick Sanchez is one of the main protagonists of the eponymous Rick and Morty alongside his grandson Morty Smith. He is a mad scientist who seems to know everything in the universe and he finds life a pointless and traumatizing experience. Rick is from Earth dimension C-137 who is the father of Beth Smith and the grandfather of the already mentioned Morty and Summer Smith. He is said that he has been away from the family for several years during the events of the show. He travels on adventures through space and dimensions with Morty. While he may be widely praised, it's no surprise that he has a toxic following.
Why They Can't Schwift Past Their Great Pain
First off, six words; The McDonald's Szechuan McNugget Sauce controversy.
They don't just like Rick, they honor him like he was a son of Jesus Christ.
They fail to realize that Rick does have flaws such as the fact that he can be a jackass or that he would think that he is very smart, but there were times that he has been wrong.
They manage to do some dumb ships such as Rick x Morty which is incest simply because Rick is the grandfather of Morty.
There's even pornographic fanart of the Rick x Morty ship.
There are even fangirls of Rick who ship themselves with Rick and even impregnating him. I-Love-Rick-Sanchez and Kanglovesme (both are deactivated on DeviantArt) are prime examples. Also, men can't get pregnant. Second of all, elderly people aren't sexy!
If you were to say you do not like Rick himself, there is a very huge chance that they would mock you and attack you. They would even try to force you to like Rick.
Many of his fans manage to be blind to Rick as well as the alternate universe versions of Rick and never really cared about other characters such as Mr. Meeseeks, Birdperson, Unity, and many others
They fail to realize that Rick is supposed to be an inspiration to Doc Brown.
Simply because of his intelligence, they managed to call Rick "God".
They believe that anyone who likes Rick is intelligent. First off, liking a cartoon character would not make you smart and knowledge does not come from Rick. How on earth would you get knowledge from liking a fictional character?
Many of his fans are edgelords, elitists, manchildren, and tryhards who cannot handle any criticism on Rick.
They would manage to call him the best main character of all characters that appeared in adult cartoons when people would prefer other characters
