1000s of people who use Social Media to single out a one time incident or bad decision by an individual to destroy their life as they know it.
I found that persons Facebook account and they work for the government. We will now overwhelm their bosses with emails and phone calls until they are fired. We will make sure they loose their home, car and & children when we are done with them! Cancel Culture Bitch!!!

An Internet phenomenon in which people shun others from social media. Like ostracism, cancel culture existed to weed problematic social media users out. Either that, or to hold people accountable for their actions. But now, it's devolved into insecure people shunning anyone and anything they despise. Those who partake in this care nothing for making social media better. All they want is to make themselves feel important, and "cancelling" is the easiest way for them to do it.

Dredging people's mistakes up, over and over, isn't how you help people learn and grow. But people involved in cancel culture don't get this, as vilifying people is easier. While it's possible for things here to change, the Internet will never be the "safe space" these people want. It's a place where people from all across the world gather. And, like it or not, some people are monsters at their core. Do those people need to go? Yes, they do.

But cancel culture's so rampant it's more dangerous than the monsters could ever be. We'll soon live in a world where shunning people for the littlest thing will be commonplace. It'd happen all day, every day, all over the world. And, until cancel culture's dealt with now, that's going to be kind of world we'll live in. And that sounds like a very, very cold world to me.

A favorite phrase of Donald Trump, Jr. and Fox News hosts.
Cancel Culture is a phrase frequently used by conservatives when they believe they are unfairly being called out for bad behavior by their accusers. In real-world terminology "cancel culture" is used as an excuse for not wanting to accept accountability.
