Cancel culture has become increasingly prevalent in recent years. It follows a typical process, usually unfolding on the internet: When a public figure says or does something considered offensive or pejorative to a given group (e.g., ethnic minorities, sexual/gender minorities, people with disabilities, women as minorities, and so forth), disparaging comments quickly pile up on social media, calling out the misconduct, withdrawing support for the person’s work/product, or using performative language to mock and shame the person believed to be responsible for the wrongdoing.
