Scott Adams (AKA the ‘Dilbert’ Guy) Keeps Finding New Ways To Be Awful

A screencap of a tweet mocking a dilbert comic strip.

This may come as a surprise, but Dilbert is still a thing that exists. What will not come as a surprise is that its creator, Scott Adams, is still active in his campaign to be the worst person on the internet.

Adams has spent recent years working up a truly vile Twitter presence, dedicated to promoting all the worst right-wing talking points and encouraging his followers to engage in targeted harassment of people who criticize him. Despite the memory many millennials have of his work as being an excessively apolitical experiment in banality, his awfulness has popped up in his work over the years, especially in his commentary about gender and his depiction of “feminists.” (Let’s also remember that Adams has spent more than a decade loudly decrying the decline of rape culture and our growing recognition of the importance of consent.)
