Freedom of speech is a fundamental right in several countries all over the world. However, that has been proven wrong in various instances as social media has shown that it dictates what can be said and what cannot. Many have spoken out against cancel culture as well.
In a similar sense, cancel culture is now prevalent all over the world and has far-reaching consequences as anyone is at the risk of being cancelled for saying something that might be seen as offensive to others.
Comedian Chris Rock previously blamed cancel culture for Americans being scared to talk. It seems another fellow comedian has voiced his concerns regarding cancel culture.
While speaking to TMZ, David Spade was asked about Mike Richards’ downfall at “Jeopardy!” and whether Spade himself is worried about getting cancelled due to jokes he said in the past.
Spade stated that he does worry about being cancelled and inciting the rage of people and because of that, he simply plays it safe and as a result of that, he is no longer funny.
The advent of cancel culture certainly has affected many people and a lot of cases were based on false accusations and social media courts. Perhaps one day the ‘woke’ culture will subside.
