Chris Rock Is Right: Cancel Culture Is Unfair To Audiences

Why is the majority of contemporary entertainment boring? Chris Rock blames cancel culture. As a growing number of comedians speak out against its detrimental effect on comedy, Rock reiterated his long-held position on “The Breakfast Club” this week.

Rock was asked by hosts DJ Envy and Angela Yee about the impact of cancel culture on stand-up, to which he replied that there is already a check system built into the art form: live audiences.

“When you’re a comedian, when the audience doesn’t laugh, we get the message. You don’t really have to cancel us because we get the message. They’re not laughing, our feelings hurt,” he told listeners. “I don’t understand why people feel the need to go beyond that.

Rock said attempts at canceling are “a disrespect to the audience,” who ought to be allowed to determine what they do and don’t like for themselves. Further, this obsessive control over what can and cannot be said is ruining content for said audience.

“What happens is everybody gets safe and nobody tries anything. Things get boring. I see a lot of unfunny comedians, unfunny TV shows, unfunny movies because people are scared to make a move and that’s not a good place to be. We should have the right to fail because failure is a part of art. It’s the ultimate cancel,” he said.

The comedian has taken shots at cancel culture before, during the host-less 2020 Oscars, in which he and Steve Martin joked about the Twitter mobs responsible for Kevin Hart being removed as the ceremony’s host for decade-old tweets deemed by some to be homophobic.

He is entirely correct about the destruction of entertainment by way of cancel culture. Aside from the fact that it’s wrong to attempt to ruin someone’s life over comments some deem offensive, this zero-tolerance policy of adhering to an ever-changing set of rules is creating very boring art.

“Saturday Night Live” has become unwatchable, in part due to a woke sensibility and a refusal to even poke fun at the absurdities of the left and undisguised vitriol towards the right, despite a long history of affectionately ribbing politicians on both sides of the aisle. Late-night talk shows have replaced humor with political pandering. Escapist films and shows forget that their charm comes from likable, realistic characters and enjoyable action, not surface-level woke lectures and one-dimensional cutouts of strong women or evil men.

The power that content producers and creators have given to a vocal minority of angry strangers on the internet is absurd and has led to this dearth of creativity. And why would creators push boundaries and innovate, or even push back ever so slightly against the status quo, when one misstep can end a career in an instant?

Luckily, some mainstream creators continue to survive this hyper-censored entertainment landscape. I doubt there is a boundary that either “South Park” or “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” hasn’t pushed. But their continued success seems mainly contingent on a reputation for the outrageous, the brash exception to an increasingly strict rule.

Chris Rock is right. Audiences deserve better.

Nashville Billboards Show Support For ‘Canceled’ Artist Morgan Wallen Ahead Of Academy Of Country Music Awards

Even though the woke music industry tried to invoke celebrity cancel culture on country music artist Morgan Wallen for using a racial slur — to which he apologized several times for — it appears fans are not remotely done with him.

Two months after being suspended from his record label, with all major radio stations taking him off airplay, billboards popped up overnight in Nashville, Tennessee ahead of next week’s Academy of Country Music Awards. In February, the ACM determined Wallen was ineligible for the awards ceremony.

“The Academy does not condone or support intolerance or behavior that doesn’t align with our commitment and dedication to diversity and dedication,” the organization said in a statement, noting it will “expedite” inclusion and diversity training for all of the “country music artist community.”

According to Country Now, six billboards were paid for by fans who felt neglected by the corporate country music industry. One fan who took part in the effort told the publication that the “idea was really our way of trying to ‘right the wrong’ of cancel culture.” The fan also said, “[w]e just wanted to ‘Wallen-Paper’ Nashville during the week of the ACMs to show our support for Morgan!”

Wallen, 27, released a double album titled “Dangerous” on Jan. 8. Upon debuting, it hit number one in the U.S. Billboard 200 and remained in that spot for 10 consecutive weeks despite the efforts to destroy his career. Billboard reported that “Dangerous” is the first album since Whitney Houston’s “Whitney” in 1987 to spend as much time on the chart. Other artists in recent memory who closely achieved this include Stevie Wonder, Adele, and Drake.

The billboards erected reference the phrase “gaht,” which is something Wallen often references in his music, as well as the Bible verse Mark 11:25: “And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”

The company Lamar Advertising is reportedly involved with the billboards, given its logo appears under it, and told The Federalist that “we do not accept or reject copy based on Lamar’s agreement or disagreement with the views expressed.”

The artist has apologized several times to fans and the industry, but it appears to be no use to the woke corporatists running the show in Nashville. Still, Wallen maintains a popular artist with a dedicated fan base.
