TV program Adult Swim accepted an anti-Trump “Rick and Morty” co-creator’s apology on Monday for having molested a baby doll in a video.

Adult Swim still has a healthy relationship with “Rick and Morty” co-creator Dan Harmon after Harmon apologized for the 2009 sketch in which he molested a baby doll after breaking into a house, reported CNET.

“At Adult Swim, we seek out and encourage creative freedom and look to push the envelope in many ways, particularly around comedy. The offensive content of Dan’s 2009 video that recently surfaced demonstrates poor judgement and does not reflect the type of content we seek out,”  an Adult Swim spokesman said to CNET. “Dan recognized his mistake at the time and has apologized. He understands there is no place for this type of content here at Adult Swim.”

Harmon deleted his Twitter account after the revelation of the video, entitled “Daryl,” through which he intended to satirize serial killer saga “Dexter.” (RELATED: ‘Rick And Morty’ Creator Deletes Twitter Account After Comedy Sketch About Raping Babies Resurfaces) 

“In 2009, I made a ‘pilot’ which strove to parody the series ‘Dexter’ and only succeeded in offending,” the “Rick and Morty” co-creator said in a statement obtained by CNET. “I quickly realized the content was way too distasteful and took the video down immediately. Nobody should ever have to see what you saw and for that, I sincerely apologize.”

Harmon has previously received criticism for anti-Trump remarks.

“It’s not easy to say you’re not a Nazi,” the comedian said after Trump blamed violence at the Unite the Right rally on both Antifa and the alt-right. “The president has a difficult time and he has no repercussions to fear, really, except for some Nazis not voting for him and he has traded that today. He has officially decreed to the extent that a compulsively dishonest parasite can decree anything. He has decreed that he is a Nazi.”
