Scott AdamsScott Raymond Adams (born June 8, 1957) is an American author and cartoonist. He is the creator of the ''Dilbert'' comic strip, and the author of several nonfiction works of business, commentary, and satire. Adams worked in various clerical roles before he became a full-time cartoonist in 1995. While working at a telephone company in 1989, Adams created ''Dilbert''; by the mid-1990s the strip had gained national prominence in America and began to reach a worldwide audience. ''Dilbert'' remained popular throughout the following decades, spawning several books written by Adams and becoming a cultural touchstone until it was dropped from syndication. It now runs as a webcomic.
Adams writes in a satirical way about the social and psychological landscape of white-collar workers in modern corporations. In addition, Adams has written books in various other areas, including the spiritual novella ''God's Debris'' and books on political and management topics, including ''Loserthink''.
In 2023, ''Dilbert'' was dropped by numerous newspapers and its distributor, Andrews McMeel Syndication, after Adams published a video in which he referred to black people as a "hate group" and advised white people to "get the hell away from black people." Adams later claimed this was a use of hyperbole. Adams has continued the strip as ''Dilbert Reborn'' on his locals.com website since March 2023. Provided by Wikipedia
