Interesting article. While I agree with your assessment of the perniciousness of cancel culture, the term is now tossed around so haphazardly that it has lost its clarity of meaning. Also, if Rowling is canceled then it’s not much of a punishment. She’s still a multi-millionaire in charge of a massive media empire. Second, people do have the right to disagree with her. That seems to be the unfortunate transformation of the term into every instance of disagreeing with a person’s public expression of a viewpoint. If you’re not willing to handle disagreement, then a public discussion of beliefs and values may not be for that person. When Will Smith is officially canceled and has lost his millions and fame, please let me know.
