CELEBRITY Cancel culture
Cancel culture is a hotly debated topic, drawing criticism from many about its bully-like treatment while also having its roots in fundamental social change. The phenomenon arose as a response to an obvious need for reform, and it became a way for the common people to have some say in what kind of actions are and aren’t acceptable from public figures, functioning similarly to a boycott but taking place largely online and often with the goal of reducing opportunities and exposing bad behavior of the offender.
But on the flip side, many also find it to be too extreme a measure, ruling out any opportunity for growth and overlooking the virtue of forgiveness. Then again, one could argue that the presence of cancel culture is what is spurring on so much social change, from the Black Lives Matter movement to #MeToo. But many ask: at what cost? And are the consequences not enough, or too much?
Obviously it’s an issue with valid arguments on both sides, but what’s undeniable is that it is rapidly changing the world of celebrity, putting people’s careers at risk, and equally opening up a formerly untrodden land of dialogue between fans and stars.
Naturally, celebrities have a thing or two to say about it. Click through to see the hottest takes from the stars.
