Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams went on a racist rant against Black people on social media yesterday, where he called Black people a “hate group” and urges white people to ‘get the hell away from them’.
The rant was particularly disgusting.
After the above rant went viral, media publishers across the U.S. denounced the Dilbert creator’s comments as racist, hateful and discriminatory. Many said they would no longer provide a platform for his work.
Andrews McMeel Syndication, which distributes Dilbert, is so far not giving any comment.
The racist Scott Adams defended himself on social media against those whom he said “hate me and are canceling me.”
Dilbert is a long-running comic that pokes fun at office-place culture.
The backlash began following an episode this past week of the YouTube show, “Real Coffee with Scott Adams.” Among other topics, Adams referenced a Rasmussen Reports survey that had asked whether people agreed with the statement “It’s OK to be white.”
