Cartoon Network “Clarence” Creator Fired Over Allegations of Sexual Misconduct:


The story is serious enough- it deals with an upcoming series on CN and the issue that has been a problem with the production of the series.

Cartoon Brew’s Amid Amidi states this:

The Internet animation community is struggling to understand and address a serious issue today: a series of tweets last night by Adventure Time storyboard artist Emily Partridge in which she identified artist Skyler Page, the creator of the Cartoon Network series Clarence, as sexually assaulting her. The incident has drawn a swift reaction from Cartoon Network. A spokesperson for the network told Cartoon Brew that, “Skyler Page is no longer an employee at Cartoon Network Studios.”

Partridge had been tweeting about the incident since Sunday, June 29, but did not reveal the name of her alleged attacker at the time.

 

On Monday, June 30, an illustrator named Maré Odomo, presumably a friend of Partridge’s, revealed that the individual was Page in the following tweet. (Partridge said she was unavailable to make a comment to Cartoon Brew today.)

 

Afterward, Partridge began using Page’s name in her tweets. Other relations of Partridge have also identified Page on Twitter, including Ryan Pequin, a storyboard artist on Regular Show who describes Partridge as “someone close to me.”

 

Partridge wrote on Twitter that although she had already spoken to Cartoon Network’s HR department, she decided to go public on Twitter because “discretion does not keep other people safe.”

 

The situation has involved many of the studio’s biggest creative figures, including Adventure Time creator Pen Ward, who met personally with Partridge last night after she spoke out on Twitter. During their meeting, Ward and Partridge discussed “creating some kind of online safe space for women is [sic] situations like this.”

This situation is truly sad. More as it becomes available…
