Cartoonist Canned For Trump Insult

If you can’t say anything nice it’s better to not say anything at all. That advice was apparently missed by cartoonist Wiley Miller.

Miller’s syndicated cartoon Non Sequitur has been pulled from The Butler Eagle in Pennsylvania after it featured a vulgar message to President Donald Trump.

Miller misguidedly thought it would somehow be appropriate to write in, “We fondly say go f*** yourself Trump,” on the corner of his latest strip.

He even tried to hype the insult, teasing it’s release on Twitter. 

Shortly after being released, Butler Eagle publisher and general manager Ron Vodenichar made apologies while stating that Miller had lost, “his place in the Eagle’s Sunday comics”.

“We apologise that such a disgusting trick was perpetrated on the reading public. The Butler Eagle will discontinue that comic immediately,” Vodenichar added.

While it’s good to see someone stand up against such unacceptable behavior, it’s unlikely that Miller will repent unless more papers follow Vodenichar’s example. Non Sequitur is currently featured in over 700 newspapers.
