Several media outlets drop Dilbert comic strips after creator’s racist remarks

Several prominent media publishers across the U.S. removed Dilbert comic strips after creators of Dilbert comic strips described black people as members of a “racist hate group” in an online video show doing.

Various media sources have denounced Dilbert creator Scott Adams’ comments as racist, hateful and discriminatory, and said they would no longer provide a platform for his work. .

The Andrews McMeel Syndication, which distributes Dilbert, did not immediately respond on Saturday to a request for comment by Adams or the syndicator on his remarks. Dilbert is a long-running comic that makes fun of office culture.

The backlash began following last week’s episode of the YouTube show Real Coffee with Scott Adams. Among other topics, Adams referred to a Rasmussen Report survey that asked whether people agreed with the statement, “It’s okay to be white.”

Most agreed, but Adams noted that 26% of black respondents disagreed and others were unsure.

According to the Anti-Defamation League, the phrase went viral in 2017 as a trolling campaign by members of the discussion forum 4chan, but has since started being used by some white supremacists.

Adams, who is white, repeatedly referred to blacks as members of “hate groups” or “racist hate groups” and said he would no longer “help black Americans”. Keep hell away,’ urged.

The Los Angeles Times announced Saturday that it will stop publishing Dilbert. warn The website chose four reruns of Dilbert in the last nine months because “the new daily strip didn’t meet our standards.”

The LA Times said Sunday’s comic had already gone to print weeks ago, so the final publication of Dilbert’s comic strip will appear in the newspaper on Sunday, March 12.

The San Antonio Express-News, part of the Hearst Newspapers, said on Saturday it would remove the Dilbert comic strip from Monday “because of hateful and discriminatory public comments by its creator.”

The USA Today Network tweeted on Friday that it will also stop publishing Dilbert “due to recent hateful comments by its creator.”

Plain Dealer in Cleveland and other publications that are part of Advance Local Media have also announced they will be removing Dilbert.

Chris Quinn, editor of The Plain Dealer, writes: “We are not a home for people who support racism. We certainly don’t want to provide them with financial support.”

Christopher Kelly, NJ Advance Media’s vice president of content, wrote that the press believes in a “free and fair exchange of ideas.”

“But when those ideas intersect with hate speech, a line must be drawn,” Kelly wrote.
