Brendan Heilman , clubs editor

The idea of cancel culture is to “cancel” someone (namely famous people) for an action that you don’t agree with the idea of canceling someone means ending somebody’s career over a joke that they made in the past or something they did in high school examples of people who have been canceled before are; Scott Cawthon, Shia LeBoeuf, Tiger Woods, and Lil Nas X. people have been canceled over everything and anything and that isn’t right. Scott Cawthon was canceled for donating money to the Trump campaign. After he was canceled he had to retire. He took the entire Five Nights at Freddy’s series with him. Canceling people because they don’t believe in the same ideology as you is not a good trait. Cancel Culture has to stop and it needs to stop fast. In his apology he said 

 

“I’ve always been supportive of creators, and have tried to treat everyone fairly, and treat everyone with dignity and respect. I’ve never cared about anyone’s race, religion, gender, or orientation. I just treat people as people, everyone the same, and because of that, I’ve ended up with a very diverse group of people I’ve worked with over the years. It wasn’t intentional. It has happened that way. I choose the people that were best for the job; I treat everyone the same, I ended up with people from all walks of life in my professional life and in my personal life as well. That’s the way it should be. That’s the way I want it to be. That’s the way it will continue to be.”

 

He never deserved to be canceled. He said “ if I get canceled, I get canceled” even though he did he took it and refused to comply. He retired but he took it well. Afterward, he said the movie would still becoming. Nobody deserves to be canceled for no reason
