Top definition
A desire to cancel out a person or community from social media platforms.

It is characterised by the response of an evil individual when they are shown to be wrong. They will call on their followers to report the social media accounts of the person or group that did the criticising rather than discussing the criticism or showing by evidence where the criticism is incorrect.

Narcissists make up the majority of the people who engage in cancel culture, and others who do this would include immature individuals.
Johnny was criticised for being vindictive against Janny and instead of discussing the problem, Johnny called on his followers to report the account, cancel culture style, of the person who made the criticism.

The McRae Boomer was offended because of some dictionary definitions he read and applied cancel culture by calling on his followers to report the definitions rather than having a good belly laugh at them.

A modern internet phenomenon where a person is ejected from influence or fame by questionable actions. It is caused by a critical mass of people who are quick to judge and slow to question. It is commonly caused by an accusation, whether that accusation has merit or not. It is a direct result of the ignorance of people caused communication technologies outpacing the growth in available knowledge of a person.

Cancel Culture is when a large mob of people come together to relentlessly attack a certain person over an accusation of some kind, which later on is usually proven false
Generally the accusation starts on Twitter, the original gets questioned then deleted but the mob has already started attacking and the person who made the accusation can enjoy a boost in followers.

A group of detractors of a person, typically originating from Twitter, who typically verbally insults and attempts to convince others that the person they are "canceling" is a terrible person.

It typically begins when one or more persons speak out and accuse a person, typically popular, of terrible things (ex. pedophilia, domestic abuse, harassment, etc.). They usually produce a lack of evidence or screenshots/videos, and/or evidence that is out of context.

Once this information is released, those that believe the accuser immediately believe the person accused has done everything and will begin publically posting or sharing the original accusation to spread the information even more.

Cancel culture usually continues until the accused releases a reply that disproves the accusations or apologized for what they have done. Afterward, most of the culture will change sides, forgive the accused, or refuse to watch the accused's proof and continue harassing them.

Cancel culture typically makes memes or image edits of the accused and usually calls them a "clown" and uses clown emojis. Cancel culture over time has been more and more distrusted due to several instances of false accusations and sometimes they are ignored.

Popular victims of cancel culture (even if the accused actually did the actions) include ProJared, Ano ASMR, JnJ Memes (Bush), Onision, etc.
The cancel culture has been very dedicated when Onision was accused of being a groomer and other accusations. It only became worse when Onision uploaded a series of fake meltdowns, especially after his Patreon was deleted after he Doxxed someone.

The customary beliefs, social forms, and material traits of a racial, religious, or social group that all seem to get offended enough to cancel a show, product, call for firing of a person, etc. No evidence or logic is required.
Rick: Hey Dave Chappelle's new Netflix specials are funny as hell.

James: Yea, I couldn't stop laughing. Sad though that he gets grief from the SJWs about jokes and they call for him to be taken off the air. Cancel Culture is ruining our society.

One of the most idiotic things to occur on the internet in the past few years. Typically involves teen girls or gays that have no life or social life outside of being on the internet and them using the large amount of time they have to end somebody famous' career with something controversial they did in their past. Typically includes some sort of racist/homophobic/sexist piece of media from a celebrity that tends to be years old and gets found and spread to end someones online career. People partaking in this REALLY need a life outside of being on their phone and know not everybody has to agree with or think the same thing as them. They should also get a reality check with the real world outside the internet.
