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… 

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.

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.
