Dilbert Comic Strip Dropped by Newspapers

From a Washington Post story by Thomas Floyd and Michael Cavna headlined “”Dilbert’ dropped by The Post, other papers, after cartoonist’s racist rant”:

Newspapers across the United States have pulled Scott Adams’s long-running “Dilbert” comic strip after the cartoonist called Black Americans a “hate group” and said White people should “get the hell away from” them.

The Washington Post, the USA Today network of hundreds of newspapers, the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the San Antonio Express-News and other publications announced they would stop publishing “Dilbert” after Adams’s racist rant on YouTube Wednesday. Asked on Saturday how many newspapers still carried the strip — a workplace satire he created in 1989 — Adams told The Post: “By Monday, around zero.”
