Statement issued on Friday, February 24, 2023
“The USA TODAY Network will no longer publish the Dilbert comic strip effective immediately.*
Recent discriminatory comments by the creator, Scott Adams, have influenced our decision to discontinue publishing his comic. While we respect and encourage free speech, his views do not align with our editorial or business values as an organization.
At Gannett, we lead with inclusion and strive to maintain a respectful and equitable environment for the diverse communities we serve nationwide.”
*The comic will be removed from print as soon as possible due to varying print production schedules.
