Wiley Miller Controversy
Butler Eagle newspaper says it will stop publishing “Non-Sequitur” a popular cartoon after a vulgar message addressed to President Donald Trump appeared in its latest issue.
“Non-Sequitur” is a syndicated cartoon by Wiley Miller and is a regular feature of the Pennsylvania publication The Butler Eagle.
In the cartoon, readers are encouraged to color in the three-panel, black-and-white cartoon, which this week featured a “Bearaissance” character named “Leonardo Bear Vinci.”
But on Sunday, February 10th, 2019, readers spotted that a small scribbled message appears in one of the panels, which says “We fondly say go f*** yourself…Trump.”
