Dave Chappelle backlash in Off-Topic General Posted 1 hour ago · Edited 1 hour ago by JM_ 19 minutes ago, buddhahoodlum said: Cancel culture will never go away. These people have too much power and they love playing god. The people who want to cancel Chapelle and everyone else have a right to voice their displeasure of course. The problem is that their "voice" ruins people's lives. Look at Johnny Depp. His show was canceled while Amber Heard gets a free pass to keep working. 8 minutes ago, PetterssonOrPeterson said: Everyone has a right to their say. Freedom of speech/opinion. It's a matter of having your entire livelihood taken from you just because your opinion differs from popular media's. this is why we need to keep allowing the free discussion. Cancel culture will continue to have too much power if its not challenged and the discussions are not allowed to proceed. Sure it might be annoying a lot of the time, but people have the right to protest. Let everyone have their say, and see how many people agree or not. By letting everyone have their say, including the 'fire Dave' stuff, we'll see how many people think thats appropriate. But if we put the clamp down on the protestors, we'll never know how many people support them, or not. It'll continue to be some murky thing that some business leaders and for sure academics are afraid of. Get it all out there.
