6 Dr. Seuss Books Will No Longer Be Published Due To Racist Imagery
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Six Dr. Seuss books are on their way to becoming rarities. Dr. Seuss Enterprises announced it will no longer publish the books because they, “portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong.” The affected books include: And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, If I Ran The Zoo, McElligot’s Pool, On Beyond Zebra!, Scrambled Eggs Super!, and The Cat’s Quizzer.
The company says it worked with a panel of experts to reach the decision and the announcement came Tuesday, on Suess’ birthday. Social media responded with an array of emotions, making comments like, “Canceling Dr. Suess on his birthday is cold as ice.” And, “Who feels safer now that Mr. Potato Head and Dr. Suess have been canceled?”
