Description

Is it time to cancel the cancel culture once and for all?

Not really.

But it might be time to rethink what the term actually means.

Many people know the online shaming that happens when a person's past actions, affiliations or offensive social media posts return to haunt the reputation, but many disagree on the reason for it.

Is it a mob of spiteful Twitter users or people who want certain names held responsible for problematic behavior?

USA Today reporter David Oliver discusses his recent article about the online phenomenon, from examining the true origin of the term "cancel culture" to the current offenders.

Here are a few...

1.  Where did the term 'cancel culture' originate? (5:05 )
2.  Chrissy Teigen's behavior (7:35 )
3.  How the political
used the term. (15:13 )
