“Dilbert” is being dumped from dozens of newspapers throughout North America after the comic strip’s creator, Scott Adams, went on a racist rant during a recent podcast when the Trump-supporting cartoonist cited a poll in which 53 per cent of Black Americans agreed with the statement “It’s OK to be white,” which led Adams to define Black people as “a hate group.”
He continued by declaring, “I don’t want to have anything to do with them. 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.”
After numerous newspapers announced they were getting rid of “Dilbert”, Adams double down by complaining about being “cancelled… because I gave some advice everyone agreed with.”
While Adams has made his feelings known, how does Dilbert himself feel about being cancelled?
Viewers of “Saturday Night Live” found out when “Weekend Update” anchor Michael Che welcomed the cartoon cubicle worker to the show.
“Michael, I think I can speak for myself and the entire all-white staff at the ‘Dilbert’ offices when I say this is a total shock,” said Dilbert, played by “SNL” cast member Michael Longfellow. “I mean, most cartoonists are weird. But racist weird? Let’s just say, I never got that memo.”
Continuing, Dilbert admitted, “I knew [Adams] was bad. He made me go into the office every single day during COVID, and he knows I’m autoimmune.”
“You’re autoimmune?” questioned Che, prompting Dilbert to respond, “Do I look like somebody who’s not autoimmune? My hair is skin. I cannot stress this enough: my hair is entirely skin and it’s the great tragedy of my life.”
