'Dilbert' no longer to be featured on Mitchell Republic comics page
Andrews McMeel Universal, which syndicates and delivers “Dilbert” to subscribing newspapers, dropped Adams on Sunday evening, according to Reuters.
A comic strip that is published daily in a number of Forum Communications Co. newspapers has lost its distributor, creating changes on the Mitchell Republic comics page.
“Dilbert” creator Scott Adams sparked controversy last week when he said people with African-American heritage are a “hate group.” He also suggested white Americans “get away” from Black people, according to reports published by the news agency Reuters, which provides national news coverage to the Mitchell Republic.
Andrews McMeel Universal, which syndicates and delivers “Dilbert” to subscribing newspapers, dropped Adams on Sunday evening, according to Reuters. In response, a number of Forum Communications Co. newspapers began filling the space with replacement cartoons.
According to Reuters, Adams could not immediately be reached for comment. But on his YouTube channel, Reuters reported, Adams said "by Monday, I should be mostly canceled. So most of my income will be gone by next week. My reputation for the rest of my life is destroyed. You can't come back from this."
