Cartoon Network Heat Storm: Emily Partridge (Adventure Time) Claims Skyler Page (Clarence) Groped Her

In what's going to be a day living in infamy of Cartoon Network policies and bad press, Emily Partridge, a storyboarder for the beloved Adventure Time cartoon series, has come forward claiming on Twitter to have been  groped by Skyler Page, creator of the new series Clarence.

It started with comments on Twitter by Mare Odomo, many might know from internet comics such as Letters to an Absent Father. He claimed that Skyler groped women he knew. He was outraged when people asked for proof of such claims.

Twitter blew up an soon other indie comic artists and even the well-known cartoon site Cartoon Brew got involved.

KC Green, also known for internet comics got involved, later so did Emily Partridge, both attacking Cartoon Brew. KC Green laid right into Cartoon Brew with a "FU".

The latest tweets of Partridge reveal that CN's human resources is already dealing with it.

It's hard to fathom, anything like this may be possible at Cartoon Network, of all places. It's a very close-knit group of animators, they are mostly known for how nerdy they are. They aren't Titmouse Animation.

Speculation over the cancellation of Clarence or severe action taken by Cartoon Network has been merely speculated online.
