He wants to cancel cancel culture. “Mr. Bean” and “Johnny English” actor Rowan Atkinson is the latest comedian to take a swipe at cancel culture, equating social justice warriors to a “medieval mob.” The comic dropped the bombshell in a lengthy interview with the UK’s Radio Times. “It’s important that we’re exposed to a wide spectrum of opinion, but what we have now is the digital equivalent of the medieval mob, roaming the streets looking for someone to burn,” the “Blackadder” series creator lamented. “So it is scary for anyone who’s a victim of that mob, and it fills me with fear about the future.”
