For whatever reason in today’s era you have to watch what you say or you will get “canceled” well at least people act like you’ll get canceled. Does cancel culture really work? The answer is NO a big emphatic NO. People think just because they have a voice now that it makes a difference when it comes to certain issues. Let’s take for instance this latest issue with Da Baby, every one was talking about the comments he made at Rolling Loud in Miami but were there really a lot of people upset or was it that the celebrities who said something about it have such an influential voice they made the most noise due to the platform that they have.
I think Da baby will be ok because none of his fans really care what he said. They just want to enjoy his music, the videos, and content that he continues to put out.
Another instance, Kevin Hart, when he got in trouble a few years back because of some tweets he put out from 10 years ago. People made a big deal about it but it didn’t really have an affect on his career. Yes they took away him hosting the oscars but other than that what really happened to him? He still made movies that were some of the highest grossing movies when they were released and he even had a comedy special come out. So was he really hurt? NO.
Personally I can’t stand this cancel culture because I feel people need to shut up and mind their own business. Who cares if people are offended by comments anymore, as a comedian sometimes it is my job to ruffle some feathers and make people feel uncomfortable but it a comical way.
Social media has given way too many an opinion that is heard who wouldn’t normally have that voice which in a sense gives them a sense of entitlement. Cancel culture will more than likely get canceled before someone’s career does.
