In the world today everyone has a fear of something they said getting out and then they have to deal with the wrath of the internet. There is a term to describe this wrath that comes upon you and that is called Cancel Culture. Cancel Culture is something that happens when someone (usually a celebrity) says or does something that the public finds rude, offensive, and just really wrong. This phenomenon has been around forever, but it really just started getting popular recently. Like in the past few months, everyone heard about the James Charles Scandal, which is one great example. The fans and subscribers disagreed with something he did and said and tried to cast him out of the public light. 

James Charles and Tati Westbrook in videos they made responding to the drama.

“Honestly I find cancel culture really toxic”, said Junior Anna Filidore “ I know people have done and said bad things, but society today is making the small things big deals and the big things like the Amazon rainforest less of a deal then it needs to be.” Filidore finished.  In today’s times, it seems like people are ultra-sensitive. Even with the smallest things, like looking at someone the wrong way or making a semi-mean comment, people are going to take offense to it. Then when people find something offensive they try to make people look back which can be really toxic fora lot of people.

“I think that with things like cancel culture people are just being ridiculous”, Senior Lia Loor said, “ Like I get the big bad things people do, like the whole fair life scandal, but like trying to end someone’s career for endorsing a brand they don’t agree with is just ridiculous”,

Loor explained. This is a big problem with cancel culture. A huge thing people are doing is getting mad at influencers and celebrities for doing their job. Endorsing brands and getting ad revenue is a big way people make money in

the industry and it is becoming harder and harder for them because of cancel culture.

In 2019 people can be really sensitive. It’s good to disagree with the really bad things people have done, but when it’s small and doesn’t change your life. There are so many great examples of cancel culture like with Summer Mckeen, James Charles, people even as famous as Bill Gates and Taylor Swift is also being said to be “canceled”. Unnecessary things and small things are being canceled and it’s toxic. I think like Taylor Swift said, “You need to calm down.”
