Facing widespread criticism on social media, the best-selling author tweeted Tuesday that he “absolutely” does not “believe that racism is practiced against white writers.” Patterson himself has thrived like few others, publishing multiple bestsellers each year, including novels and children’s books. He is ranked with J.K. Rowling and a handful of others as among the world’s richest writers.
