Say, Isn't Drake's "God's plan" music video a bit woke washing? He seems to use his philanthropist-like acts, to promote himself.

Get the woke washing mug.
In TV and cinema media, the use of modern the interpretations of social justice and racial intersectionality to justify the changes to an established media product to correct previously "insensitive, racist, or problematic" themes, characters, and/or plot devices; with the end result being that the new product is subjectively more racist and insensitive, destroys established canon of, and is inferior to the original media.
Did you see Gren in that shitty-ass Netflix adaptation?! His character was woke washed to the point of being irrelevant.

Get the Woke Wash mug.
The act of dismissing crimes committed by groups whom the woke perceive as historically marginalized. Example? Native Tribes raided, slaughtered, enslaved, & committed genocide toward each other for centuries before Chrissy C showed up. It was constant, merciless, nomadic war.
The woke refuse to celebrate Christopher Columbus day because of the atrocities he committed, and replaced it with Indigenous peoples day. But when you raise the point that tribes committed just as heinous crimes against each other they bury their head in the sand. That's woke-washing.

Get the Woke-washing mug.
Using diversity casting to prop up or add cred a poor script or generally bad film.
The Ghostbusters remake was so bad they woke washed it by making it an all female cast.
