'Cancel Culture Isn't A Thing, You Snowflakes.' Cody Johnston Takes Apart the Nonsense Surrounding 'Cancel Culture'
In the light of that unfunny bloke getting fired from that politically impuissant, smug, bloodless, bourgeois, one-sketch-in-a-hundred-works sketch show, there’s been a lot of talk about that apparent blight of the modern era: ‘Cancel culture.’
A lot of arse-backwards nonsense talk. Mostly by people who couldn’t be more transparent in their use of the term in furthering their political agenda if they tried. But there’s probably still some people out there who might have some legit concerns about what they feel is happening. So in light of that, here’s one of my favourite YouTubers (I only know about three), Cody Johnston (one time Cracked staff member, back when Cracked was good), taking the whole thing apart quite beautifully:
