We like Chick-fil-A, so I was taken aback by a recent CNN headline:
Chick-fil-A backlash is nothing short of ‘cancel culture’
Chick-fil-A is in hot water. But ‘cancel culture?‘
Chick-fil-A is clucking about ending donations to religious, anti-LGBTQ organizations.
OK, I understand that backlash can come from a variety of conflicting sources. Got it. But ‘cancel culture?‘ From the Urban Dictionary:
A modern internet phenomenon where a person is ejected from influence or fame by questionable actions. It is caused by a critical mass of people who are quick to judge and slow to question. It is commonly caused by an accusation, whether that accusation has merit or not.
It’s a thing.
