QUESTIONS FOR YOU:
What’s the difference between “cancel culture” and “being held accountable”? These are questions we’re all trying to deal with right now. Those of you raising children, especially teenagers, could be forgiven for freaking out at the thought that your child’s future may be ruined because of something stupid or disgusting that they posted to social media. Maybe you’re worried about your own future.
Here’s a definition I found on the Internet: Cancel culture is a modern form of ostracism in which someone is thrust out of social or professional circles – whether it be online, on social media, or in person. Those who are subject to this ostracism are said to have been “cancelled”.
Do you think this current trend of cancelling people for their speech (past or present) will end soon? If you do think so,what do you think will bring it to the end?
Or, do you think this trend will be with us for a while and if so, why do you think this is the case?
I’ve given you three examples of recent controversies – two “cancellations” and one “not cancelled”. There are numerous examples out there! Google The Bachelor if you’re curious about more.
Teen Vogue Magazine:
Award-winning journalist Alexi McCammond, age 27, is out at Teen Vogue for saying racist things about gays and Asians about 10 years ago, which came as a surprise to her fans because she is African American herself. Her coworker, Christine Davitt, who has Asian heritage, urged the magazine to get rid of McCammond but the she came under fire herself for using racial slurs against African Americans in tweets. Davitt has made her Twitter account private and as of 3/25/2022, Davitt’s Twitter account says she is “formerly” employed at Teen Vogue. I don’t know if she quit or got fired for her racist comments. In June 2021, McCammond rejoined Axios as a political reporter.
Sharon Osbourne – The Talk:
CBS’s The Talk was been taken off the air (voluntarily) as the network investigated charges of a hostile work environment thanks to cohost Sharon Osbourne’s verbal fight with a coworker on the air. The conflict occurred because Osbourne defended Piers Morgan, a friend of hers, who was criticized in England for speaking out against British Royals Harry and Meghan’s Oprah Winfrey interview. As you may or may not know, Meghan Markle is biracial. Osbourne was fired from the show amid charges she is a racist. As of 3/28/2022, Osbourne is joing Piers Morgan on his new talk show that begins in April.
Whoopi Goldberg – The View:
Whoopi Goldberg, Oscar-winning actress, stand-up comedian, and talk show host, came under fire for anti-semetic comments when, on January 31, she said that the Holocaust was not about race. One of her co-hosts reminded her that the Nazi’s were white supremacists who killed Jews but Goldberg insisted that didn’t count as racism because the two groups were white. She later appeared on Stephen Colbert’s show and doubled-down on the comments. Public scorn from all circles convinced the ABC television network to suspend Goldberg for two weeks. She made a recorded apology that satisfied some people but not others. She was not fired.
SOURCES: As always, I remind you that you can Google everything and watch the videos or read the sources to see with your eyes (and hear with your own ears) what took place.
