Adams, who is white, repeatedly referred to people who are Black as members of a “hate group” or a “racist hate group” and said he would no longer “help Black Americans.”

Several papers and online platforms announced that they would no longer publish “Dilbert” due to Adams’ racist remarks.

Andrews McMeel Universal, the company that distributes “Dilbert,” announced on Sunday that it was severing ties with Adams over his remarks.
