Many fans of NBC’s ‘Community’ are upset today that show runner Dan Harmon has been fired from the series.
Here’s part of the statement released by Harmon from E! News:
“A few hours ago, I landed in Los Angeles, turned on my phone, and confirmed what you already know. Sony Pictures Television is replacing me as show runner on Community,” Harmon wrote early Saturday morning. “Why’d Sony want me gone? I can’t answer that because I’ve been in as much contact with them as you have. They literally haven’t called me since the season four pickup, so their reasons for replacing me are clearly none of my business.”
Dan Harmon is Community.

I love Community so much and am so glad that it'll be back – but Community without Dan Harmon doesn't sound like… Community.

Did NBC and Sony even realize the overwhelming amount of backlash and bad press firing Dan Harmon will cause them?

Dan Harmon should start a new show on another network and call it City College.

#Community without Dan Harmon is considered a heresy. And should be dealt with the same way the middle ages dealt with heretics.
