Strongly disagree. Adult Swim thinks Roland is toxic & might make it so they can't print money from Rick & Morty stuff. If I was accused of very troubling criminal charges I would assume my current employer would cut ties with me. & then later if I am found not guilty, they could hire me back.
I would try to separate the toxic creator person (that is accused of illegal activity), from my golden intellectual property that is a cash cow. AFAIK, they are not really risking anything by separating from Roland. They risk a lot more if they stood by Roland up until (if*) he is found guilty.
