11/15/2021 06:10:43 am
I don't think its ok to cancel someone because its pretty harsh and its like bullying someone. Even though you did something bad but people can change. Canceling someone is like bullying because you ignore people and just act like they don't know you even though they are your really good friends or just someone you know. They can feel bad about themselves and think that they can't fix what they did wrong or don't have the opportunity to change.
11/15/2021 06:12:05 am
I think it’s ok to cancel someone because canceling someone is like the consequence for what they did. In addition, canceling someone is like blocking off the negative influences out of your life.
11/15/2021 06:17:46 am
No, It is not because many people have no intention of using it for good and usually use it for little reason. In a way canceling is kind of like bullying. People can cancel you simply because they don't agree with what you are saying.
11/15/2021 06:20:45 am
no its not ok to cancel someone, ive seen too many cases where people took it too far, or canceled people for stupid reasons. And in many cases its toxic. Cancel culture can be good sometimes, but i don't think its the most effective way to get someone to change their actions.
11/15/2021 06:30:33 am
I believe that canceling someone is not ok because of how harsh it is to the person. canceling someone is basically blocking them out of your life which as a punishment is very harsh. i think that a person can make up from something they have done and deserve a second chance. completely canceling someone doesnt give that chance for forgiveness.
11/15/2021 06:30:52 am
it should be OK to be able to cancel someone because if they don't get canceled, then they would keep doing the bad thing that person didn't get canceled for. For example, the racist girl. if she didn't get canceled, then she would have done the same thing more and more often without consequences. However, now that she got canceled, she might not want to do it anymore. in addition, its not a form of bullying if the person being canceled was hurting others. They should get another chance to be better though.
11/15/2021 06:36:40 am
No its not alright to cancel someone because they probably didn't mean it and even if they mean it they never get the chance to explain themselves about it, and later on their lives they would reget it
11/15/2021 06:48:13 am
I think it is okay to cancel people because people need to face the consequences of what they have done. If you let them get away with it once they will think it's okay to do it again.
11/15/2021 06:51:44 am
Yes, it's kinda ok to cancel someone but it doesn't have to be permanent. Give them time to think and change.
11/15/2021 06:54:53 am
It really depends on what they did, sometimes its okay, sometimes its not. If they did something minor, it shouldn't affect their career that much. If its something major, then people would have to look into it more and see if they have to be cancelled or not.
11/15/2021 06:54:57 am
Cancelling someone shouldn't be okay because if you cancel them,they won't be allowed to explain themselves and if they do learn from their lesson, they still can't say anything since no one would want to talk to them or listen to them. If they were to say they learned a lesson from something bad they did, but still do bad things then I think people should be allowed to cancel them.
11/15/2021 06:55:18 am
I think it is OK to cancel someone because it is a tool to improve people and it can change people for the better. Canceling someone can sometimes be a form of bullying when they are canceling someone as a way to make fun as them. But it is ok to cancel someone who makes racist or homophonic towards someone. for example if someone Were to call another person racist slur or to stereotype someone then they should ofcourse be canceled. But cancel culture can be harmful to ones mental health. If they were to get canceled at a low point in there life them maybe its better to get them help then to shame them. Another reason sometimes cancel culture is sometimes toxic is when soical media shames down on someone for what they did in the far past.if someone said something 10 years ago and they have a changed personailty then there might be no reason to be a road block and let them move on when they apologize. But on the other hand if they don't seem like they've change and keep making the some mistakes then people have to cancel them so they can learn their mistakes.
11/15/2021 06:58:24 am
I think it is okay to cancel people because people that had done bad thing online or in school should be facing the consequences for what they have done. If you cancel the person they will learn their lesson from what they have done, and they will learn how they have impacted other people for what they said.
11/15/2021 07:05:44 am
No, I don't think cancelling someone is the answer to anything. Many times, cancelling someone can be too harsh, it's essentially blocking someone and completely ignoring their existence. This could also be seen as a form of bullying and won't actually help to get rid of the problem at hand, which may be racism or another social injustice.
11/15/2021 07:08:20 am
i think it is ok to cancel someone. to cancel someone a bunch of people must want to cancel them. there is always a reason in wanting to cancel someone.
11/15/2021 07:10:26 am
I think that it depends on the situations that person is in and that’s its ok most of the time because sometimes the reasoning behind the situation can be unreasonable but also people’s approach to it may also be unreasonable and that cancellation should be educational and the person involved should learn from their mistake.
11/15/2021 07:15:01 am
I think that it is okay for someone to get cancelled because if they did something horrible they should not be able to get away with it, they should be cancelled so they know the consequences and not do it again.
11/15/2021 07:21:09 am
No it's not okay to cancel because it doesnt matter what the person did or said people are going to try and cancel the guy or girl and after a while people will forget what she or he did especally if your famous people will always like you so canceling is pointless and dumb
11/15/2021 07:28:20 am
I think that canceling people is not ok because it can ruin some ones life because they made one mistake. But i do agree that people should be held a countable.
11/15/2021 07:31:50 am
No, its not okay to cancel people because even though sometimes its okay to do it depending on the situation, but most of the time, people are doing it because they just want to feel more powerful, gain relevance in the online world, or they're just flat out rude. Heck people are still getting cancelled for bad reasons even though there are actual people who deserve to be cancelled yet no one has made a single attempt to cancel them and they decide to target people who have done nothing wrong.
11/15/2021 07:38:09 am
Yes, it is ok depending on what they did because some things cannot be forgiven and other things can.
11/15/2021 08:10:27 am
its only ok to cancel someone if you know for a fact that it was them who said something offensive or mean to someone. Unless you know that that person did/said it, its not ok to cancel someone
11/15/2021 08:10:56 am
I think it is somewhat okay to cancel someone. canceling someone is like the payback for what they did. furthermore, canceling someone is like keeping away and standing up to bad things.
11/15/2021 08:12:29 am
it is some times it is ok but mostly no because they are useing there power to fell like they can conrtoll them
11/15/2021 08:43:51 am
Yes,I think its ok to cancel someone if they actually do something that needs to be called out for. This way they would know not to anymore. It is however wrong to cancel someone because of random thing just because. This can really hurt someone and their reputation.
11/15/2021 08:55:33 am
i think it is okay to cancel someone because sometimes people need to get canceled because of their action, and what they do. for example if someone was to say something rude and harsh to someone f social media then it makes since to cancel that person so they could regret what they said.
11/15/2021 08:55:59 am
I believe that it is not ok to cancel someone, or at least to the extent of how it is done today. The person that committed the transgression, should, in many ways repent for what they did. However, canceling them, and not giving them this opportunity will not exactly help the situation, and would just make things worse for the person.
11/23/2021 06:13:32 am
Conrad, that is an excellent point
11/15/2021 08:56:36 am
Yes, I think it's okay to cancel someone only if they said or did something bad like say something offensive or disrespectful to someone for no reason.
11/15/2021 08:58:31 am
I think it's okay to cancel someone to a certain extent because if people don't do this, they will keep doing the wrong things, and not learn from it. But we can't go too far as to cancelling someone because that can really affect them, and I don't think that's what most of us actually want.
11/15/2021 09:00:48 am
I think it's ok to cancel someone, but only in certain scenarios because people need consequences for their actions, but they shouldn't be canceled for every mistake they make.
11/15/2021 09:01:44 am
I think it is not ok to cancel someone because cancelling someone can lead to bullying that person making toxic environments leading to deaths, shootings, etc because sometimes not everyone wants to be in a toxic "joking" environment and they take it seriously leading to something no one wanted
11/15/2021 09:02:16 am
I believe that cancelling people is okay. If people are being cancelled because of something dumb like disagreeing with a random opinion, then it's just bullying. but if someone is being hurtful or mean, they should pay for their actions. It all depends on the context and what happened.
11/15/2021 09:02:58 am
Yes I think it is ok to cancel someone because it makes someone change after what they did, basically making them learn their lesson. I also think that a person should be canceled if they do inappropriate things. Without the punishment they might even influence other people to go along with it.
I do not believe it is ok to cancel someone, as it is just a way of getting back of someone, punishing the person more rather than actually teaching them a lesson. If someone made a disrespecting comment, they should have space to apologize and reflect, however, if suddenly everyone blocked them, they would only feel despair, which is basically bullying the person because of something they said, even if they made a truly wrong comment. Calling someone out because of something they did or said is more humiliation rather than teaching someone a real lesson. Humiliating someone for something they said or did, even if it wrong, is no less than bullying. To bully someone because of their actions is ultimately wrong, no matter the cause.
11/15/2021 09:09:29 am
i think it depends on the situation but sometimes people can do some harsh stuff therefore they should canceled for their actions.

11/15/2021 10:32:01 am
I think it is okay to cancel someone depending on the situation. If there's still room for the person to change then they shouldn't cancel them, but of course they should still be held accountable.
11/15/2021 01:22:57 pm
Yes, It is okay to cancel someone because if they are saying something inappropriate they should be canceled they should learn a lesson for making bad or doing bad things. If they are not canceled they will be free to keep doing that thing and they wont learn a lesson.
11/15/2021 01:27:04 pm
I think that it is okay to be cancelled because people can learn and bring awareness on what they were cancelled on. Even though it could be harsh, they probably deserved it because they obviously did something wrong. Plus, people can learn and change however, it is based on the creator's mentality on if they should be forgiven or not.
11/15/2021 02:48:52 pm
it is nice to see the amount of opinions on this topic and how many of you are sharing their thoughts.
11/15/2021 03:33:04 pm
I think its ok to cancel someone because if someone does something inappropriate or harsh thing they will face their consequences. Its a lesson that they can learn how to change and they can be given a second chance.
11/15/2021 03:38:02 pm
cancelling someone is just another form of bullying them until you feel satisfied
11/15/2021 04:36:26 pm
It think that it depends on the situation. For example, if the person is discriminating someone then they should be canceled. Another example is that if they are willing to make amends then they shouldn’t be canceled. Otherwise, it would be a form of bullying.
11/15/2021 05:01:12 pm
I think it is fine to cancel someone but it depends on the situation and the seriousness of the action or what they did wrong. For example, it's not ok, like the example given in the article, to cancel your classmates because you don't agree with something they said or posted. It's too extreme for something so small and they aren't really given a chance to speak up and explain themselves. On the other hand, if someone, say an adult, has done something wrong that they really should know better than to have done, then it's probably deserved.
11/15/2021 05:30:26 pm
I think it is okay to cancel someone because it lets them know the significance and the consequences of their actions, especially when they have done something horribly wrong. However, I think that people should only be canceled when they refuse to acknowledge their wrongdoings and refuse to reflect from it because these kinds of people should really not be paid attention to.
11/15/2021 05:51:57 pm
I think that is really depends on the situation and what the person did. If what they did deserves consequences then they should face those consequences. If what they did was minor and they apologized than they should just learn from their mistakes and move on. Getting canceled can also affect people in bad ways.
11/15/2021 05:57:28 pm
i think it depends on what they did because if it's just a mistake a person made that did not hurt anyone it's not okay to cancel them.But if it's something hateful that was directed to a specific person/group i think it's okay for them to get cancel.
11/15/2021 06:50:03 pm
I think that it is okay to cancel someone if they've been given a few chances to change but they keep on causing hurt to others. If we can use canceling as a punishment in situations where we know that it is necessary, it can prevent people from causing harm on social media such as posting racist messages or bullying. People who are repeat offenders will learn the hard way that it is not okay to do these things. However, if the person is truly sorry for what they have done and changes their ways, we don't need to cancel them.
11/16/2021 06:21:59 am
i think its ok to cancel someone but it depends on what the person has done. If it was an accident then why not give them another chance. If that chance was used than they get cancel.
11/16/2021 08:17:37 am
I think that cancelling is okay in moderation. Completely cutting someone out of your like is extreme and harsh, but if you give someone a chance to change and redeem themselves from their mistake then I think it is okay because the punishment fits the crime. If cancelling would mean completely cutting off your relationship with a person because they made a mistake and not giving them a chance to fix their mistake, then I think it is too harsh and is not okay.
11/16/2021 08:35:08 am
I think it ok as long as it is used in the right way instead of using it to attack someone or hurting someone for no reason
11/16/2021 09:20:15 am
nah, I don't think "cancel culture" is real, in my opinion, I think it's dumb because a lot of people can just cancel someone just because they don't like them but if someone else does it and they like that certain person, they wouldn't cut them out the picture for it or do anything about it. Anything can be made up about a person anytime and people who don't like that person can just go with it and there you have it, they're excluded out of everything. Overall, I think this gen is weird, I don't like it. I think that people should just respectfully tell them, "hey, don't do that, that's not cool," instead of full on blocking them, excluding them out of everything, etc, when they can change.
11/16/2021 01:38:46 pm
I think it ok to cancel someone, because it the only way to stop them. They might being racist, or offensive or something, the only way to turn them down is to cancel them.
11/16/2021 01:50:55 pm
I think it depends on what that person is being canceled for like for example, if it was for something they did or said 5 years ago, it shouldn’t matter because they could have changed from now and from 5 years ago. But if the person was being racist or sexiest they deserved it.
11/16/2021 04:35:46 pm
It's okay to cancel someone over something big, like a racial slur. Cancelling someone could have a lot of benefits, like the person being cancelled can learn from the experience. But cancelling someone over something small, like a non-related joke should not be ok.
11/16/2021 04:41:08 pm
I believe that it is not ok to cancel someone because you need to give them a second chance. It’s not correct to just cancel someone without giving them time to correct themselves. Sometimes, people give them harsh punishments or punishments that’s not needed to be deserved so this isn’t helping to fight for social injustice. I think that if the person does something offensive another time after giving them a chance, then you should probably consider about changing the plans.
11/17/2021 03:52:29 am
I think it’s ok to cancel people because it’s really important to teach someone a lesson and what they did wasn’t right. If they get canceled I think it’s a fair punishment because being racist and spreading negativity to others isn’t nice. Also it’s important we cancel these people because they could really hurt someone’s feelings and that someone could kill them self. So in my opinion we need to cancel rude people to expose them and reveal their true personality.
11/17/2021 06:45:49 am
I don't think its okay to cancel someone because it can be a form of bullying, and sometimes people take it too far or cancel someone for stupid reasons. And I don't think cancelling someone is an effective way to get them to stop since it doesn't really leave someone a chance to correct themselves or learn what they did and why it was wrong.
11/17/2021 06:59:28 am
I think it isn't okay to cancel someone because even though the person did something bad instead of cancelling them you should tell them that they shouldn't suppose to do that or teach them not to. Cancelling them wouldn't do any good because they didn't learn anything and might continue doing bad things. But if they continue then I think they should get cancelled.
11/17/2021 08:30:57 am
I am so impressed with all the comments thus far. I am wondering if the cancel culture movement began as a result of what many say (or incorrectly say) through social media platforms. Did social media spark the idea of cancel culture?
11/17/2021 08:56:28 am
I think it is NEVER okay to cancel someone. even if they did do something wrong its always a good idea to talk to them and try to educate them before going to extremes. cancelling someone can destroy their future and have people understand what you say the wrong way. especially if its on social media
11/17/2021 09:10:23 am
it is not ok to cancel someone because when you cancel someone it can get bad like when someone cancel someone, everybody will start canceling them too and it can get big and that will really hurt the person.
11/17/2021 09:16:13 am
I believe that if you were to cancel someone, there has to be a solid reason why. Cancelling someone who doesn't even know what they've done wrong isn't right. They won't know if did they anything wrong or how to fix the solution as people won't talk to them about the situation. Plus, if a person gets cancelled because of something they did years ago, that's not a good reason to cancel a person. However, if the person who got cancelled did something that was wrong and inappropriate, it would right to cancel them since their statement wasn't friendly.
11/17/2021 09:16:19 am
I think it isn't ok to cancel someone since canelin someone doesn't do much since they can come right back to saying more of the same stuff over again i rather try talkin to the person by sending through dms or something and only time tat canelin can come useful is when someone is really be bad and they don't learn from it.
11/17/2021 09:24:12 am
This can depend. Lets say Joe McRufer is saying that everyone should die or you should go kill yourself our any other words of hate like that. This would be a good situation to cancel them because it can give people motivation to do something to themselves, moreover just do something to themself that isnt right. There also is the time where you cancel someone because they did not do something you like. Like if they ate your cookie or they have opposite political or anything else that contradicts your own ideas. This would not be ok to cancel someone because people are allowed to have their own beliefs, and unless they are abusing their account and using it to harm someone etc, it is not ok to cancel someone.
11/17/2021 09:54:00 am
I don't believe it is ok to cancel someone in most cases. Cancelling any person in a reasonable case makes them realize they are wrong for their actions but it discourages them from changing. Instead, a friend (or someone else) can confront them, then they are more willing to change when someone wants to help them.
11/17/2021 10:10:05 am
I believe that it depends because there can be misuse of it. People can be unfair with it, they can abuse it and treat the victim unfairly for something that isn't right and would be considered bullying. However, I also believe that if it is used correctly on people who have said something really bad and have had some sort past of doing such things, then it is okay.
11/17/2021 10:31:39 am
I don't think it's OK to "cancel" someone. In theory, and sometimes in pratice, it stops people from being hurtful to others. But in reality, it doesn't leave room for people to explain, or even redeem themselves a lot of the time. Not to mention that when it gets out of hand (which it does quite a bit), instead of being a justice seeking group of people, it becomes a mob, that even though it's on social media, still very much affect real life. What I really want to say here is that cancel culture can be great, but only in some circumstances. The example Fattah used was a great one. it shows a situation where people treated the canceled person fairly and respectfully, and fixed the very real problem they had. But a lot of the time, it just turns to chaos and a swarm that devours anyone who has a different opinion and isn't "woke". Even a simple idea like, "Hey guys, maybe we should slow down a bit, we're being rash here, aren't we?" will be met with hate and anger, ironically making the cancel mob the very thing it swore to destroy. Overall, it is a force that can be used for good, but most of the time, it's used for bad, rather than good.
11/17/2021 01:00:40 pm
I believe that canceling someone is ok because some people might have done something terrible and they deserved to be canceled because of what they have done. However, people that have done nothing wrong shouldn't because they have clearly been good to people since the beginning and people are just canceling them for no reason or their reason is just really stupid.
11/17/2021 01:31:46 pm
I don’t believe in the idea of “canceling someone.” Cancel culture is toxic and prevents the person from having room to grow and learn from their mistakes. It’s also a way for people to post hateful comments online. However, it’s okay to point out mistakes people make if you do it respectfully.
11/17/2021 01:40:29 pm
I think it is ok to cancel someone because they could have done something terrible and if someone else doesn't do anything about it the person might do it again.
11/17/2021 04:38:29 pm
I think it depends on what people do. If some people didn't do any wrong thing than it will be okay but if they did something wrong or hurt someone than it okay to cancel.
11/18/2021 06:28:35 am
I think it is okay to cancel someone but only if you have the whole story, and not just canceling someone on a suspicion or something where there isn't proof. If there's proof that someone did something bad, then it's okay, but if there isn't proof and it's just based on someone else's words, it's not okay.
11/18/2021 07:00:42 am
I believe that it's not ok to cancel someone because even though it makes the person realize they have dome something wrong, this punishment of just cancelling them is a little extreme in my opinion. Canceling a person denies them the right to say what they may want to say, like sorry or maybe even tell their side of the story. It is an unjust and unfair punishment. Another option is just to allow that person to tell their side and to change what they did wrong. Everybody can change. Canceling someone from 5 years ago or maybe even longer for what they said back then doesn't make sense, that person could've changed by now. So in conclusion, I think the punishment of canceling somebody is an extreme punishment that shouldn't be allowed to happen.
11/18/2021 07:04:30 am
Canceling someone should be alright, strongly depending on how serious their actions are. For example, there's no point in canceling someone if you know they're sorry and they don't get a chance to explain. However, if they've said or done something extremely offensive and show that they have no regrets, well, obviously, they're getting canceled.
11/18/2021 07:13:39 am
I think that it depends on what the person did to get cancel.like if they did something really bad like being racist or be homophobic then yeah i think its okay to cancel them for it but if your canceling someone because of something they have no control over like if a person was to cancel someone for being Asian or a different race then that's not okay it really depends on what the person did
11/18/2021 11:46:41 am
It depends on what the case is, If they made a comment discriminating against a certain group then they SHOULD get cancelled. But cancelling for something that no one can control such as religion or Race. Also, canceling for clothing should NOT be allowed.
11/18/2021 02:08:49 pm
I think thank sometimes it is okay to cancel someone because they need to face consequences for their actions but sometimes the reason for canceling is stupid or the canceling is taken too far.
11/18/2021 02:46:52 pm
I think it isn't ok to cancel someone eventually it will be used maliciously and could be used as a form of bullying for example if someone decided to randomly cancel someone if it gets enough following it could work and if anyone with a large enough following decides to cancel someone it will probably work
11/18/2021 03:10:53 pm
I feel that it is okay to cancel someone if they did something bad recently. If the person did something a decade ago they could've changed and they would be getting canceled for actions of an old them.
11/18/2021 07:44:18 pm
I believe that it is okay to cancel someone depending on what they have done. If they did something by accident and didn't really understand it they should be able to get a second chance to try and learn from it. If someone knew that, that action is wrong they deserve to be canceled because they are doing something that is wrong and should be punished for it. Canceling is basically like blocking someone from your life so when someone does something terrible it is best to ignore and block them away.
11/19/2021 05:46:33 am
I think it's OK to cancel someone when it is a recurring situation in the school that needs to be addressed. However, it should be the last measure. Before cancelling someone, the accused's point of view must be understood. Were they in a bad mood and made choices that they regret in hindsight? Did the victim provoke that person? If so, the situation should be handled privately with the school's guidance counselor. Some may say that cancelling someone shouldn't be used at all in school because children and adolescents, like us, are still figuring out what are morals, virtues, and how to act like an adult. It would be unfair and traumatic to someone who hasn't learned why their actions were wrong to not get a chance to redeem themselves. However, if a person knows that what they're doing isn't right and affecting others negatively, the only way to get them to stop may be to call them out publicly.
11/19/2021 06:32:14 am
I believe that cancelling someone is okay if they have done something actually terrible, like committing a hate crime. But people shouldn’t get cancelled by something minor, like a simple joke.
11/19/2021 07:55:14 am
I don't think cancel culture is a good punishment. While certain celebrities have done something bad to get cancel, some where by complete mistake and sometimes ruins their entire career. On a less famous level canceling someone at their school is incredibly similar to plain bullying, while I do think that some acts do warrant extreme action, 90% of the time, the thing done by the student was small and insignificant. They instantly fall to the bottom of a social hierarchy where people who don't even know them have a largely unjustified hatred towards them. if cancel culture in this way becomes common place it can easily be abused by popular people to target less popular people, creating a larger gap then there already is.

I think its okay to cancel someone unless they are using it to take power over the person and they might have a big impact on their lives, a bad one. But if the person did something very wrong its okay, they deserve it.

I don't think the canceling culture is okay. Nobody is perfect, canceling someone is a very harsh punishment. The person should be able to have a second chance and change their actions instead of being blocked out of peoples lives.

I don't think canceling people is okay. People on the internet overuse canceling too much. There are innocent people on the internet that get canceled by someone who dislikes what they do or say. From my experience, I've seen people who went through people's past just to find something they did wrong. They found out about something someone did 5 years ago. The person who got canceled knew what they did wrong and learned their lesson already. Canceling people can get out of control and can ruin people's life or career within a short amount of time. Sometimes these information may not even be true as well.

I think it really depend what the situation is.If the person did something major and affect a lot on a person, then they need to face the consequences of their actions.

I think it’s ok to cancel someone out but they will have to think more about doing so. I believe that stopping someone or telling them that doing so is wrong is ok. Like pointing out that racism isn’t ok. But I think it shouldn’t go too extreme that the person feels like they are getting bullied because of what they said or did. They should have a second chance to realize and know what they did wrong. I think canceling out someone should just be a little reminder and consequence for their action. Letting them know that there is consequences for their actions and stopping them from continuing their wrong actions.

In my opinion, I think it's not ok to cancel someone. People can get canceled just because other people don't like them. Imagine waking up to your friends ignoring you and to your classmates talking about you behind your back. Then you realize that someone who doesn't like you went out there and said you did this and that so you should get canceled. Is canceling good in this case? Some people might argue that canceling is a tool for people to realize their mistakes but in this case, is it really a tool for people to realize their mistakes? In my opinion, no it's not. Some of these cases get too extreme for no reason that it just becomes bullying instead of letting people realize their mistake and change. On the other hand, there are definitely cases out there where the person that is being canceled deserves the punishment, but in most cases, using canceling as a punishment is too extreme and not fair.

In my opinion, it's not okay to cancel someone, especially when you don't have clear views of a situation. To prove my point, there are many people who criticize others when they spent little to any searching of multiple accounts. There has been various demonstrations throughout countless platforms of social media, including being downright condemned over small errors at their side, which illustrates a prospective in refuting. Further on, people have misinterpreted the term "cancel culture" as in actions of repetitive lecturing in each fault until they feel content after forms of degradation. Before adjusting/advancing to your upcoming plans, please work out what affects could occur when cancelling someone.

I think it's not okay to cancel someone, though it depends on the situation. If the person in question is remorseful, then canceling them won't even give them a chance to explain or atone themselves. It's just hating on them for doing something " wrong". But I get why it can be a good thing, because calling out people for doing horrible things is the right thing. But nowadays you can be cancelled for even the smallest things so a lot of people who get cancelled don't deseve it

It is not ok to cancel someone because canceling someone is like a critism. In addition, it doesn’t allow someone to actually change. It is emotionally painful to get canceled for little things that you did.

In my opinion, it is okay to cancel someone. It gives people an effective tool for fighting social injustice. It also makes people think before they act. Some might say it does not leave room for someone to correct their mistakes, but there are ways to become “uncanceled.”

I don’t think it’s okay to cancel someone. People just need to be educated to understand what is wrong and what is right.

I don't think cancelling someone should be a thing because when you cancel someone you ignore their existence and when they try to appeal for the bad thing they've done they can't because you would just ignore them and not care

I think canceling someone is more of like an online thing. Like canceling celebrities online because they were racist of said a slur, something like that is something a lot of people need to agree on, One person can’t cancel a celebrity, they would need a few people and evidence to try and get it out there for people to actually believe and cancel them. You also need a good amount of people and proof to cancel somebody, some celebrities don’t do anything wrong and get cancelled..I think that’s not ok, unless the celebrity does something wrong, then you can cancel them, don’t cancel someone because you don’t like them or you hate them.

It depends what they did to someone or something. like if a person did like mean stuff it okay but if they didn't then it not okay

I think its ok to cancel someone if they did something really bad. Like if someone beats their girlfriend or wife or if someone rapes someone. I don't think people should be listening to music of people who do stuff like that or watching them on TV because we can't accept that. Canceling them could let them know its not ok and people won't still support them. I don't think people should get cancelled for everything. Sometimes they can change and learn to be different.

Canceling is a very harsh punishment, and I think it is unfair to most people, who are mixed, complicated bundles: some good, some bad. Rather, I think criticizing is a better alternative. Engage with someones views instead of shunning them. Explain how they are wrong. This might actually persuade them, instead of possibly making them angrier and angrier about the situation.
