Another season of Rick and Morty has gone by, but not as quietly as usual. Just recently, headlines went up over Rick and Morty fans acting like spoiled children over novelty Mulan sauce McDonald’s brought back, including videos of people jumping on counters and screaming that they didn’t get the mediocre fast food slime. For those unaware, the season three premiere made a joke by showing that Rick was obsessed with a forgettable movie tie-in sauce from the late 90s called schezwan sauce. It did not take long for McDonald’s to seize on the joke for some publicity and eventually had a one day special with the stuff – and it was a disaster of untold proportions.
It’s even more bizarre when you remember the point of season three seemed to entirely be “Rick is wrong.”
