Accuser Confronts Community Creator Dan Harmon on Twitter For Misconduct

In the wake of the #MeToo movement, we really haven’t seen alleged abusers be confronted directly by their accusers. That is until now.

Television producer Dan Harmon, best known for creating hit shows like Community and Rick & Morty, took to Twitter on New Years Eve to reflect that 2017 was the “Year of the Asshole” and he included himself. And he hoped to make 2018 the “Year of the Not as Much of an Asshole.”

Well Megan Ganz, who was a former writer for Community, reacted to the tweet Tuesday morning, asking her former boss to “be more specific.”

Harmon then engaged in a rather lengthy exchange with Ganz that shed some light as to what went on behind the scenes on Community. He began by being apologetic and despite “foggy memories” admitted to “abusing” his position and treating Ganz “like garbage.”

Ganz took exception to his “foggy memories,” going into detail about the lasting damage that was done because of Harmon.

Harmon then expressed that he was “disgusted” by his own behavior and has “felt sick about it.”

He even vowed whenever she wanted him to do something that he “will support it.”

While Ganz hasn’t forgiven him yet, she did appreciate his “attempts to make amends.”

Since leaving Community after season four, Ganz has written for numerous comedies like Modern Family, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, and The Last Man On Earth.
