Portfolio, the business imprint of the world's largest book publisher Penguin Random House, will not be publishing Scott Adams' book "Reframe Your Brain", according to a report by the Wall Street Journal on Monday, subsequent to a racist declaration from the creator of "Dilbert".
A response to Reuters' request for a statement was not immediately given by the publisher, while Adams could not be reached.
On his YouTube channel last week, Adams labelled Black Americans a "hate group" and proposed that white Americans should "get the hell away from Black people" in reaction to a poll conducted by a conservative organization alleging that many African Americans do not think it's okay to be white.
This caused many U.S. newspapers to stop running the "Dilbert" cartoon, initiating a controversy on social media.
Portfolio has published books by Adams in the past, including "How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big".
In the meantime, billionaire Elon Musk, reacting to the papers discontinuing the cartoon, stated that the U.S. media was racist.
"For a *very* long time, US media was racist against non-white people, now they're racist against whites & Asians. The same thing happened with elite colleges & high schools in America," Musk tweeted on Sunday. "Maybe they can try not being racist."
