100 workers at Netflix and the usual social media mob, are doing their absolute best to put pressure on Netflix to cancel it. So far Netflix are holding firm but the Netflix boss is copping a lot of sh*t atm. They will probably get their way and cancel Chappelle.
And he will never be heard from again?

Im beginning to see the rebellion start against cancel culture. People are realising that the agendas are full of lies and therefore are beginning to not listen. Dave Chappelle proved that all these angry Trans people simply didn't watch his program. Just made judgements. They are a lying disgrace. And frankly the more we ignore these people we show that their unintelligent shouting of buzz words and abuse achieves nothing.

Yes, multi milliionaire/billionaires like Joe Rogan, Dave Chappelle, JK Rowling and Donald Trump are totally worrying about cancel culture

Just more red meat for their stupid simps to feed on
Yeah shouting buzzwords in protest is hardly a sign of intellectual debate. The simple brainless arguments presented in cancel culture can be easily ripped apart by anyone. They are akin to flat earthers and anitvaxxers

You do realise the term "cancel culture" is a buzzword? Just like "political correctness" before it

So you complaining about cancel culture is, as you say, hardly a sign of intellectual debate, you at least got that right

You’re on show now, champ.

The threat of defamation by powerful men with access to a lopsided versus legal system to silence speech. Mechanism to dissuade speech embedded into a legal framework.

Yet, you pearl clutch about…an impulse.

Let me know when you think you have an argument.

Try not to roll over so quickly this time.

Everything goes through trends but eventually it balances out. Cancel culture trended because business got scared of boycotts by a loud minority and scrapped sponsorship as a result. Netflix has shown the world that a loud minority shouting buzzwords at protests doesn't achieve anything and the general public have stopped listening. This is the lazy way of public debate and ultimately whatever message they are trying to convey stops being listened to. The Dave Chappelle controversy proved that a group of lazy people with an agenda not only didn't watch his program but tried and failed to get him cancelled because of it. So not all hope is lost.

I understand what you mean when you say it.

I think you’re wrong.

Get it?
How so? Can you elaborate?

You don't think there is an illiberal impulse that seeks to remove "offensive" content?

Or do you simply object to the term "cancel culture"?

My post was a response to your sarcastic comment that "only lefties do cancel culture". You know I haven't claimed that. I've repeatedly acknowledged instances of RW cancel culture.
