    I don't think you understand freedom of speech... Freedom of speech is strictly concerning the government regulating what you can say. No one is being limited in terms of their speech. They are however reaping the consequences of getting on a soap box and yelling stupid things in public. That has nothing to do at all with freedom of speech. I swear did you folks all fail social studies?
    So who's 'goalposts' are we going to measure every single twitter post? Seems like there are completely different standards depending on what side of the political spectrum you stand on.

    Case in point, THE Mandelorian actor Pascal has also made posts relating to the Holocaust, which were entirely #fakenews, and he's still got a job.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...na-Carano.html

    And this is ALL after after Disney basically thanked and paid the Chinese communist government, specifically the region that is currently forcibly imprisoning and 're-educating' Uighurs in a cultural genocide in modern concentration camps.

    Yeah, lets use that company as our moral standard!

    Cancel culture is a classic example of a lead up to totalitarianism. I swear did you fail social studies, politics, and history?

    Just a good reason why entertainers should stay the fuck out of politics on social media.
    Give it a year or 2. Silent racism was already a thing last year during peak BLM. Shutting the fuck up will be as guilty as speaking out against the mob.

    You don't have to wait a year, it's already happening. The mob can go after you for random trivial thing like cracker barrel, madness of crowds indeed.

    Yeah, this is already happening on a small scale. People aren't yet paying close attention to who doesn't post things on social media. I think once they run out of people to attack that will be next.

    So you don't think a PRIVATE company should be able to fire their employees when they publicly state something which is damaging to the said company image/brand? That seems very totalitarian. The company is forced to keep employees on staff and can't fire them?

    I swear you people only cry about this crap when the speech in question fits your preferred world view.

    I don’t think he’s saying the private companies shouldn’t have the right. It’s just that the vocal are dictating who to and who not to cancel inconsistently. Its dangerous because they can cancel someone under the guise of one thing when there may be other underlying factors involved, such as sexism or racism, that get buried.

    It’s easy for the companies and government by just bowing down to vocal pressure from social and mainstream media, when that voice only represents a few and not the majority. You’ll never have a true sense of what the majority are thinking anyways, because supporting the target means you’re getting cancelled too.

    I think you give up a lot when you post your thoughts in public. Some just have farther reach than others.

    I don't like when people get fired for things they say, but on the other hand I like reminders like this for celebrities to keep their opinions to themselves.

    Edit: Also fuck all the people following a wrassler expecting insightful social commentary.

    If I ever get a chance to do that FHRitP thing on live TV, I'm gonna. And I'm super likely gonna get fired for it after (although 10-20% chance I could pull through) and I still think it would totally be worth it.

    Already rumor that Disney is looking to sweep this under the rug and bring her back now. The backlash from fans over this has them torn. If this is true it would be great to see that the regular public can play the same game as these left wing extremists and have it work. I've been saying this for quite some time now, people need to start pushing back and calling them out as racists and bigots for everything they say, just go complete reverse and cancel the cancel culture.

    Well what other option is there? Just allow the other side to play dirty and win?



    This was a funny little meme.

    I don’t have the answer for that if the mass wants to go back to Stone Age. It’s good for the planet?

    I dunno. I gave up. Just found out that chest feeding is a thing now. Can you milk a cat?
