The co-anchors’ roast comes after hundreds of publications — and ex “Dilbert” distributor Andrews McMeel Syndication — cut ties with the comic strip following Adams’ reference to Black people as a “hate group” and his call for white people to “get the hell away from Black people.”
Jost, after a jab from Che, joked about a possible alternative to fill the void of “Dilbert.”
A faux Dilbert (played by Michael Longfellow) made a cameo to weigh in on Adams’ remarks and said they came as a “total shock” to the entire all-white staff at his office.
“I mean most cartoonists are weird but racist weird? Let’s just say I didn’t see that memo,” said Longfellow before a long pause.
Dilbert later joked that he was “blind” to racism because his glasses are opaque white.
