"Getting Canceled" has become an upward career move on the right - let's say you're a creative who had one good idea they're running out of ways to coast on (J.K. Rowling), or in a medium that's been slowly dying out for a long time (Scott Adams) or built up a reputation over decades for being tough to work with, a jerk to fellow cast and crew members and a pain to producers (Roseanne Barr).

Just say something edgy on Twitter that fits the Right's narrative and Get Canceled! You'll go from has-been to cause celebre overnight and be able to milk that through at least one junket tour, maybe more!

I’m an Independent voter so I see both sides with cancel culture. The goal of most of the left, apparently, is to punish and destroy. The right tends to have a narrative of ‘take your money somewhere else.’ BIG difference.

Nice try pal. Started reading your post and even though I don’t believe in the cancel culture, I respected you perspective on the issue, until I got to the paragraph where you clearly don’t like Republicans using the same tactic. The old double standard. Lol
