Outlets Ditch “Dilbert” After Author’s Latest Racist Rant

The New York Daily News reports:

Cleveland’s Plain Dealer newspaper will no longer deal with “Dilbert” cartoonist Scott Adams, who went on a racially charged rant telling fans to “stay the hell away from Black people.” The Plain Dealer, founded in 1842, said “it was not a difficult decision” to cut the office-culture cartoon from its pages.

And it said all Advance Media newsrooms — which include SiLive.com and NJ.com— will follow its lead.

Adams contended on his Wednesday web program racial relations in the U.S. are strained beyond repair. “I would say, based on the current way things are going, the best advice I would give to white people is to get the hell away from Black people,” Adams said. “Just get the f–k away. Wherever you have to go, just get away. Because there’s no fixing this.”

Adams last appeared on JMG in May 2022 when – in the wake of the Uvalde mass shooting – he called for allowing children to “kill their bullies.”
