Greg Daniels, creator of ‘The Office’, has cut out a scene of Rainn Wilson’s character doing blackface in a 2012 episode. This was done in response to the Black Lives Matter movement, and to not enforce the racist stereotypical caricature in modern media.

‘The Office’ is the latest show to remove any scenes of blackface, joining ‘Community’, ’30 Rock’, and ‘Scrubs’. 

The re-edited episode will now appear on Netflix and anywhere else where the series is available to be purchased.
