Cancel Culture

Cancel Culture

Grace Clevenger

In today’s world cancel culture is becoming more and more popular. Social Media is playing a part in this act. Cancel Culture is extremely harmful and toxic in some cases. If you didn’t know, Cancel Culture is where a group of people cancels a certain person for their actions. In the media, cancel means to destroy that person’s platform and make sure they don’t a fanbase. For example, Zoe Laverne, Morgan Wallen, David Dobrik, Trisha Paytas, Brendon Urie, and “Lil Huddy,” or Chase Hudson, were all canceled and now have little to no fans at all.

The Toxicity of Cancel Culture

Cancel culture can be considered many different things for some. Many people, however, consider cancel culture to be incredibly toxic. At times, “canceling” can be taken too far in certain situations. For example, someone can say something that isn’t offensive at all, but they are still canceled because someone took what they said out of context. But there are other cases as if someone has said something offensive with no repercussions.

The Good Things About Cancel Culture

Seeing all the faults in social media can become depressing, canceling a good person for no reason is sad. There are still positive sides to cancel culture. Racist, sexist, or any type of person who wrongs others in any other form, gets held accountable for their actions. As I stated before, people do use this power for wrong and cancel people for unnecessary things.
