Stuart D. Dough a musician and voice artist who proceeds as Unknown Hinson, was dropped by Adult Swim from the long-running series”Squidbillies” after comments he made a week ago about Dolly Parton and the Black Lives Matter movement.
Following remarks by Parton on the side of the Black Lives Matter development, Baker made a few incendiary Facebook posts, offending her with chauvinist language, pronouncing that “Rednecks made you a millionaire” and considering her a “Self-Racist.”
He later issued a statement that he “sincerely apologized for my post regarding Dolly Parton, BLM, race, and everything. I apologized for my actions, my bad choice of words, and any offense I may have caused to anyone. I don’t know what else you want from me. If you’re not satisfied with my apology, just tell me what else you want.”
He was maybe most popular for the Adult Swim animation “Squidbillies,” an uncivilized satire where Baker gives the voice of the lead character, a disagreeable redneck squid named Early Cuyler. The arrangement was co-made by Dave Willis, a graduate of Wake Forest University who beforehand co-made the religion arrangement “Water Teen Hunger Force.” The twelfth period of “Squidbillies” circulated in 2019 and production is in progress on the thirteenth season.
In an announcement delivered Sunday night, Willis and Jim Fortier, the co-maker of “Squidbillies,” said “We’re aware of the extremely offensive and derogatory social media posts made late last week by Stuart D. Baker. The views he expressed do not reflect our own personal values or the values of the show that we and many others have worked hard to produce over the past 15 years. For those reasons, the production of ‘Squidbillies’ will continue without Mr. Baker, effective immediately.”
It was not satisfactory if the job would be reevaluated or if the character would be murdered off. No airdate has been declared for another season.
