Cancel culture is a social phenomenon in which an individual or group involved in controversy is targeted by the general public in order to remove their presence from a social or professional platform. Over the last few years, the cancel culture mindset has become increasingly hypocritical and toxic. This presentation aims to analyze different instances of cancel culture in action in order to: determine any trends of controversial behavior, examine the discourse environment that's most often stimulated and its influence on the general public, evaluate any unfair biases present among cancel culture advocates, and better understand the negative impact that cancel culture has on intellectual debate and artistic creation.
