Pan Macmillan Drops Pete Evans Amid Neo-Nazi Scandal, As 10 Boots Him From I’m A Celeb Line-Up

Pete Evans is continuing to be dumped left right and centre, with Pan Macmillan and Network 10 the latest to give the controversial celebrity chef the flick.

Evans’ publisher Pan Macmillan Tweeted it was ending its contractual relationship with the troubled chef after he posted a cartoon to Facebook that included a symbol associated with neo-Nazis.

The publisher has also invited bookshop owners to return Evans’ books should they wish to.

The post and image (pictured above) have since been deleted. Evans had captioned the cartoon, “An oldie but a goodie”.

Following the ensuing social media storm, Evans apologised and said people “misinterpreted” the cartoon.

“Sincere apologies to anyone who misinterpreted a previous post of a caterpillar and a butterfly having a chat over a drink and perceived that I was promoting hatred,” Evans wrote.

“I look forward to studying every symbol that have ever existed and research them thoroughly before posting.  Hopefully this symbol ❤️resonates deeply into the hearts of ALL!”

10 drops Evans from I’m a Celeb

10 has also been booted from 10’s reality show I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, which he was due to appear on next year.

“Network 10 can confirm that Pete Evans will not be appearing on this season of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!” said a 10 spokesperson.

Meanwhile, Sleeping Giants Oz is campaigning for Coles and Woolworths to boycott Evans’ products.
