The Rick And Morty Moment That 26% Of Fans Think Went Too Far

Also among the most sensitive subjects a TV show can touch upon is suicide, and that’s something “Rick and Morty” got very close to in the Season 2 episode “Auto Erotic Assimilation.”

After being dumped by a hive-mind (it’s a long story), Rick goes to the garage and sets up a strange contraption, first putting a mutated creature out of its misery with it before putting his head in the same place, clearly meaning to kill himself with it before it fails, with Rick slamming his head on the desk and crying.

It’s clearly not meant to be a joke in any way, but like the last scene, suicide and suicidal ideation is such a sensitive subject that seeing it in a comedic cartoon with no warning could be especially triggering for those who have lost a loved one to suicide or struggled with suicidal thoughts in the past, which could explain why 20% of voters chose this scene as the one that went too far.

If you or anyone you know is having suicidal thoughts, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline​ at​ 1-800-273-TALK (8255)​.
