Have you checked your Twitter account just now? If you have, then you must have seen Adult Swim trending on it. When I saw it, a million possibilities ran through my mind in one second. However, all of them had Rick & Morty, and Elijah Daniel’s idea for animated LGBT comedy in them. In short, I was expecting something exciting. Instead, all I got were Karens on the cob. Apparently, our Karens had no idea that Cartoon Network blooms into Adult Swim late at night. One of them raised her voice against it since it’s not good for a ‘kids’ network to broadcast adult content in the dark hours. And now, there is a whole Karens Campaign running on Twitter.
Karens are coming for Adult Swim
If you do not know what a Karen is, google it. The results are pretty interesting, at least for the non-Karens. Anyways, we tried to find out what triggered the anti-Adult Swim campaign. And here it is:
For a reason, Karen

Why are the kids still up after hours and watching cartoon network? That’s the question many people have raised after this tweet broke the internet. And they are coming at it from all sides.
So Goku, Adult Swim, and Linkin Park are trending at this very early hour…since I rarely know what day or time it is, please tell me it's somehow NOT the year 2001. Or do. Idk. By comparison, that year was lit. pic.twitter.com/gB1FoksNZs

Last we checked, it was still 2020.
Me seeing a bunch of angry adults on Twitter suddenly upset about Adult Swim "poisoning children's minds after hours", as they apparently have just discovered it exists on the same channel as Cartoon Network, and didn't know it's been around since 2001: pic.twitter.com/wjokIteYWS

It took 20 years for the Karens to realize the Adult Swim was always there on Cartoon Network, even when they were Baby Karens themselves. Hah, even I didn’t know that.

Cartoon Network & Adult Swim should at least post a warning before jumping to the adult content. Oh wait, they already do that.
Are the Karens overreacting to the situation?
As a kid who watched cartoon network- they’re real clear when it’s adult swim time and that you need to stop watching

I’m not a Karen (I know every Karen says that) but I just found out that Cartoon Network turns to Adult Swim at 8 PM. Moreover, the weird content is mostly late at night. Anyways, the warnings are always there.
