Cartoonists say a rebuke of 'Dilbert' creator Scott Adams is long overdue.
Cartoonists across the country are applauding editors and publishers for condemning Scott Adams, the creator of the comic strip Dilbert, after his recent tirade against Black Americans.
Hundreds of newspapers, including The Washington Post and The Los Angeles Times, announced they will no longer carry Adams' work.
Adams went on to accuse Black Americans of being "a hate group" and advised white people to "get the hell away" from them.
But cartoonists say Adams has a long history of spewing problematic views.
In the past, Adams has inaccurately described people who are not vaccinated against COVID as the real "winners" of the pandemic.
"I say it all the time: Cats have better representation on the comics page than people of color," Knight said. »
