Justin Roiland, the voice actor and co-creator of the animated comedy series Rick and Morty is facing domestic violence charges which have originated from an incident that happened in 2020. While he is awaiting trial and quickly wants to be out of the alleged crimes, his sister, Amy Roiland also has links with a severe controversy that garnered major media attention.
The social media influencer is a rising fashionista who sparked controversy last year when she demanded studio time free of cost in exchange for her social media exposure. Here are the full details.
The Whole Tiktok Drama Amy Roiland Allegedly Created
The former actress, Amy Roiland was embroiled in a major controversy, especially on Tiktok when she was alleged to be demanding a photoshoot without paying any cost.
The report about her alleged rude behavior toward studios emerged when Sarah “Smac” McCreanor, an LA-based studio owner uploaded a video to Tiktok of a voice note from an unnamed influencer. In the video, an influencer requested to use their studio space for a 20-minute photo shoot with her daughter.
When the owner rejected her request, the influencer sent an angry note to her bashing out them for denying her request.
“For free? When I charge a lot of money for postings, and we get like twelve million hits on our TikTok, and we do really well, actually, with video here, and that’s disappointing? … That’s crazy.
“Who runs this account? Are you ninety years old and not know how influencers work? That’s hilarious. You guys are really out of touch, it’s crazy.”
It lead to major controversy as many believed from the emails and messages which were spammed by the influencers to the studio owner were from the fashion influencer.

This is still practiced by many influencers as they try to use any services free of cost giving their followers, or high reach as an excuse for promotion instead of booking and paying them as a client. While the media personality has never really addressed those allegations, her brother is also facing problems in his life.
