The famous comic strip Dilbert has been dropped by several newspapers due to its creator Scott Adams’ racist remarks. Adams made the offensive comments in a recent podcast, saying “white people should get the hell away from black people.” In response, editors from multiple publications have made the decision to remove Dilbert from their pages.
In a letter to readers, an editor for a Cleveland newspaper explained that they are dropping the Dilbert comic strip due to Adams’ “racist rant.” This sentiment was echoed by editors from other newspapers, who also announced the removal of the comic strip from their publications.
Adams has a history of making controversial comments, including his support for former President Donald Trump and his skepticism towards climate change. However, his recent racist remarks proved to be the final straw for many editors and readers of Dilbert.
The comic strip, which has been in circulation since 1989, follows the humorous exploits of office workers and has gained a loyal following over the years. But now, the future of Dilbert is uncertain as several newspapers have dropped the comic strip from their pages, and others are considering doing the same.
In addition to the backlash from newspapers, Adams has faced criticism on social media for his comments. Many users have expressed disappointment and disgust with the creator, calling for a boycott of Dilbert and any other projects associated with Adams.
It remains to be seen what the future holds for Dilbert and whether or not Adams will face any further consequences for his remarks. But for now, the beloved comic strip has been tarnished by its creator’s offensive comments and has been removed from several newspapers across the country.
