This is a disingenuous misrepresentation of what cancel culture is. Yes, there will always be some people who twist a good thing and take it too far. But for the most part, cancel culture is comprised of people fighting a powerful individual spreading hateful ideas. And they fight them not with hateful words, but with silence and withholding their money. It’s not about self-empowerment. In fact, cancel culture comes from the acknowledgement that most people simply don’t have the same power as celebrities. The only way for those that do have power to be held accountable is if the people band together online and denounce them.
