Cancel culture has once again reared its ugly head, this time taking aim at Marilyn Manson and Louis C.K., each of whom has a history of sexual abuse allegations against them, and Dave Chappelle, who has made and continues to make jokes at the expense of the trans community. The Recording Academy is the latest to take aim at the three, announcing yesterday that each has received … Grammy nominations? Louis C.K. and Dave Chappelle were each nominated for Best Comedy album, while Marilyn Manson was twice nominated for his contributions to Ye’s DONDA album.

That’s going to put a real dent in their careers.

“We won’t restrict the people who can submit their material for consideration. We won’t look back at people’s history, we won’t look at their criminal record, we won’t look at anything other than the legality within our rules of, is this recording for this work eligible based on date and other criteria. If it is, they can submit for consideration,” the Recording Academy’s CEO, Harvey Mason Jr., said yesterday.

In other words, the Recording Academy separates the art from the artist, no matter how heinous the artist’s actions have been. Cancel culture is so unfair!
