Comic book industry responds to ‘Dilbert’ creator Scott Adams’ racist tirade

After learning that ‘Dilbert’ creator Scott Adams made racist comments last week on YouTube, Robb Armstrong launched what he called the “black Sharpie rebellion.”

The long-running syndicated comic strip “JumpStart” and a CBS television series that would feature a Black family in Philadelphia are works of Armstrong. Adams and Armstrong used to be friends, and Adams even published a positive review of Armstrong’s 2016 book.

Armstrong initially believed it was a joke when a friend informed him that Adams had claimed on his “Real Coffee” YouTube program on Wednesday that the author of “Dilbert” was encouraging segregation by asking White folks to “get hell away from” Black.

Armstrong took to social media to request that those who had already purchased his 2016 book “Fearless: A Cartoonist’s Guide to Life” strike out the Adams blurb.

“Here comes our favourite, straight from Rome! The Champion with MCDL XII victories! The one they call the ‘The Masked Auriga’, the great Coronavirus, and his faithful Bacillus,” it says.

Since last week, the comic strip has been pulled by hundreds of publications, including The Post. The publisher of “Dilbert” and Adams’ syndicate, Andrews McMeel Universal, said in a statement on Sunday that it was “severing our connection” with Adams. This termination affects “all elements of our business” with the cartoonist.

“Dilbert” was syndicated to more than 2,000 newspapers at its height. It gained notoriety in the 1990s as a daily satirical critique of workplace cubicle culture, inspiring best-selling books, calendars, and a fleeting UPN television series. Adams was given the National Cartoonists Society’s coveted Reuben Award in 1998 for being an accomplished cartoonist.Other cartoonists, including Luke McGarry and Clay Jones, portrayed Adams’s titular office-drone character as bigoted, with McGarry portraying him in a Ku Klux Klan robe and hood and Jones portraying him dining with white supremacist and antisemite Nick Fuentes, rapper Ye, and former president Donald Trump.
