Today it’s called “cancel culture,” but a clearer way of describing what’s happening is to call it what it used to be known as prior to the rise of social media: Censorship. Cancel culture is an attack on free speech. It means using public shaming on social media to cancel out or de-platform the opinions of people deemed to have racist, misogynist or other unacceptable views, by depriving them of public forums in which to voice them.
