Marvel is doing serious damage control after this

Fans of the X-Men will be shocked to learn that racist and offensive messages were able to be published in the comic books, totally escaping the careful eyes of Marvel’s editors and publishers.

For the past fifty years, the creators, writers, and illustrators of all of the X-Men books and films have worked hard to make the team of mutants as inclusive as they possibly could; the coming together of average humans and extraordinary mutants was often a lesson in itself. When it was found that this message of good will was being jeopardized, Marvel immediately dismissed the offensive artist. Unfortunately, the damage has already been done.
