Okay I’ll admit it. That seems pretty ducking stupid in hindsight. To say
You're young, and you're learning. It's all one really has the right to ask of you
I think if you scroll back far enough I asked some pretty dumb questions politically here
Still do from time to time, but I like to think my dumb statements or questions are less.
Imagine being cancelled from an online raiding guild.
Do you even lift, bro?
Warcraft is inestimably serious business
Do you want to make me feel guilty about cancelling people from an online raiding guild? (on Dark Ages of Camelot, not WoW - yes, I'm ancient, thank you )
Retrospectively, though, our alliance blew up as a result of me expelling a proven harrasser from my guild. People thought I'd been unjustlly harsh with a valuable player (the guy in question was a prominent night-shift raid leader...)
I absolutely cancelled someone for using a racial slur in voice chat in an ESO guild I was an officer for.
Yeah, there's little hesitation to be had. Screw server politics, the guy's out.
I am become Leroy Jenkins
A meme so old you ought to be cancelled.
At least I have chicken
Fine. But you’re not kicking me out - I’m leaving.
Cancel culture is the ruling power's reaction to any criticism of Israel.
Hey, that's who I voted for when I tried to keep Boris out of office.
That’s a paddlin’
So apparently some folks are big mad about the rebooted Animaniacs series, to the point of calling for a boycott of Warner Brothers. I watched the episode in question*, and the joke about Johnny Depp was literally blink and you'll miss it. Moreover, in a show legendary for its biting satire, the Warner Brothers -and the Warner sister Dot- made it clear in one of their many meta references that the song they were singing was written and animated in 2018. So yeah...in this case, I think cancel culture went too far.
*side note: After a 22 year hiatus, the show is amazing! They've lost none of their edge, and there were so many layers to their humor. I was impressed.
These are the same people trying to get his ex fired from anything she does.
Much like large corporations, bug celebrities don't need advocates. They have plenty of people working for them that already are.
The man owns an island, he can afford to lose some jobs, jesus
Amber Heard is a domestic abuser and it's been documented. Both she and Drop were ****. There's no need to defend one bad person.
If you think I was 'defending' anyone, you didn't actually read my post.
I'll give you a mulligan, because 'big' turned into 'bug' on my ****ing phone.
Here's an interesting perspective: I haven't really paid attention to the relationship between "cancel culture" and algorithm.
