Cancel culture: ‘Where do we draw the line between opposing views and mob mentality?’


Cancel culture: ‘Where do we draw the line between opposing views and mob mentality?’

In this all or nothing world, we are in danger of cancelling vital conversations in favour of zapping those we don’t agree with into the abyss, writes Amanda Cassidy


‘Go kill yourself’, the tweet read, its vitriol undulled by the bright screen in front of me. Aimed at Irish TV presenter Laura Whitmore, the starkly audacious online comment was as a result of her appearing on a podcast to show support for the British Army during lockdown.

The 35-year-0ld had been promoting a podcast series for the British Army called The Locker in which the Love Island presenter interviews a female soldier about her life in a typically male-dominated landscape.

“Hear me talk about all things confidence, body positivity, being female in a male-dominated industry & overcoming insecurities with the inspiring Ella, a soldier in the @britisharmy,” she shared.

Later, Whitmore who hails from Bray, posted a tribute to the late John Hume, the man who worked tirelessly and successfully to promote peace in the North during the troubles.

Immediately she was attacked for being “two-faced” and a “traitor”.

“This is not about ignoring the history book. This is about progress and equality — something Hume promoted,” she wrote on Twitter, in response to the flurry of outrage.

A lack of due process doesn’t transform into a moral good just because you sometimes agree with those it sets in its sights
