Course Correction S2: Can "cancel culture" go too far?
Host Nelufar Hedayat talks about being called out online, and speaks to a crisis management expert about the best way to handle such situations. She then talks to two journalists who have faced online harassment and real-world consequences for their opinions. Finally, she hosts a roundtable discussion on cancel culture to try and parse when, if ever, canceling someone is appropriate.
Supporting cancel culture is extremely problematic. People who have good intentions and want to use it for good just completely ignore the fact that most people only use it as an excuse to be mean, horrible people who send threats to other people and feel powerful behind a screen because they have nothing better to do and want to feel important. Cancel culture is not good and needs to be replaced with something that actually works.
