The Andrews McMeel Group When Scott Adams’ racist remarks about Black Americans caused hundreds of newspapers to delete the satirical cartoon, Universal, the comic strip’s syndicator, announced that it is severing ties with Adams and the comic strip.
Andrews McMeel’s Chairman Hugh Andrews and Chief Executive Officer and President Andy Sareyan issued a joint statement in which they condemned Adams’s remarks and announced the syndication firm will “sever our relationship” with him.
On 27 Feb 2023, the publishing house that was set to release Adams’ next book announced that it would abandon plans to do so. Portfolio, a Penguin Random House brand, said that it will not be publishing Adams’s next book, “Reframe Your Brain.” Initially, the book’s release date was slated for the month of September.
Adams announced the cancellation of his upcoming book and his entire backlist on Twitter on Monday. He also claimed that he was “canceled” by his book agent.
Adams’s earlier books include “How to Fail at Nearly Everything and Still Win Huge” and “Loserthink: How Untrained Brains Are Ruining America,” both published by Portfolio.
Hundreds of Publications no Longer Include “Dilbert”
Hundreds of newspapers throughout the country have quit printing “Dilbert” despite McMeel’s decision potentially having far-reaching consequences for the comic strip.
Adams clearly urged segregation in a disturbing outburst on YouTube, calling Black Americans a “hate group” and advising that White people should “stay the hell away” from them.
According to the USA Today Network, which owns and controls numerous newspapers, the long-running comic strip has been canceled. The Cleveland Plain Dealer, along with the Washington Post, announced that they will no longer distribute the comic.

In reaction to a Rasmussen Reports poll finding that 53% of Black Americans agreed with the statement “It’s Fine to be White,” Adams made the following remarks.
The Anti-Defamation League has pointed out that the slogan has a “long history” in the white nationalist movement and that it first appeared on the notorious message board 4chan in 2017 as part of a trolling campaign.
“If nearly half of all Blacks are not OK with White people – according to this poll, not according to me, according to th is poll – that’s a hate group,” Adams said Wednesday on his YouTube show “Real Coffee with Scott Adams.”
“I don’t want to have anything to do with them,” Adams added. “And I would say, based on the current way things are going, the best advice I would give to White people is to get the hell away from Black people, just get the f**k away … because there is no fixing this.”
