Wiley Miller’s in hot water

Before and after of the “Non Sequitur” that landed Mr. Miller some trouble.

Newspapers are dropping “Non Sequitur,” after the cartoonist Wiley Miller included a not-so-nice comment about POTUS.

The original, for those of you who can’t read backward, says “go fuck yourself Trump.”

Kevin Riley, editor of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, said Wiley Miller’s comic, “Non Sequitur,” will be replaced starting in today’s newspaper.
“Obviously, this does not meet our standards,” Riley said. “We apologize to all of our readers, and we’ve personally reached out to every single subscriber who’s contacted us.”

“Non Sequitu” has run in many newspapers for the last 27 years.
