creator and voice of the title character has been fired for groping a co-worker on the show. The news broke yesterday from Maré Odomo (her work previously on the blue)
, and Emily Partridge came out shortly after as the person Odomo was talking about. And Partridge had been talking about an unnamed incident since June 29th.
This morning, it was rumored that Page had been fired from Cartoon Network and banned from the premises, and later today, Cartoon Brew confirmed that this was the case.
Pen Ward, creator of Adventure Time
-- which Page had worked on prior to Clarence
-- met with Partridge and the two talked about how to set up an online safe place for women in her situation.
It's also been alleged by Patrick Harpin
, the former Head of Story on Clarence
that Page had little to do with the creation of Clarence
, beyond the voice and deciding he wanted to do a show about a "fat, dumb kid".
