Cancel Culture

Cancel Culture is a pressing concern in modern society as social media influence has increased across the world and the livelihood of individuals has become far more intertwined with their presence online. The term refers to the removal of support or “canceling” of someone, most commonly witnessed on social media platforms such as TikTok and Twitter after a creator has said or done something to warrant backlash.

Within this podcast, we discussed the history behind Cancel Culture, why people get canceled, the impact of a public apology, and the intent of those who are doing the cancelling. We are Skyler, Nancy, Vega and Ellie from the Lakeridge Newspacer Podcast and we hope you enjoy!
