Generally speaking when someone says "cancelled" nowadays (when they are in a position of power/fame) it really just means that people aren't fawning over them as much, and this displeases them.

 

lol yeah, they don’t make violins tiny enough for it

I think figuring about 95% of all people are awful but it’s about 1% of that 5% that makes the other 4% so awful is the healthiest world view.

 

If that were really the case, humans would never have been to form actual societies and civilizations, so I have to categorically reject that notion :p

I will say that “Cancel Culture” has probably jumped the shark. I’ve had several conversations with friends and family members recently who are all over it. I still say that it’s really about accountability for folks that don’t like to be held accountable, but they have managed to rebrand it into some kind of assault against free speech and folks have bought into it.

Yeah, both of these. It seems to me that most of the time when people are bitching about "cancel culture", it's just that they're being held accountable for the shitty thing they said and they're not used to it. Though there are certainly exceptions where PC-ness has gone too far, of course.

Chappelle responded, as recalled the next day by the students, “My friend, with all due respect, I don’t believe you could make one of the decisions I have to make on a given day.” 


o so hard to be Chappelle. Imagine getting handed a $20M+ check for a special and saying this to a child.
