A huge chunk of the entertainment industry hit Donald Trump with everything it had.
Celebrities used their platforms in an attempt to “cancel” him.
And a famed rapper who went after Trump got blindsided with one accusation.
Marshall Mathers, who goes by the rap name Eminem, is currently being targeted by the “woke” cancel mob.
Mathers joined the parade of celebrity lemmings who attacked Donald Trump during his presidency, and now the metaphorical guns are trained on him.
Leftists empowered the cancel mob, and now people are looking for anyone and anything to take out.
Generation Z, the group after the Millennials, apparently just found out that Mathers has used explicit lyrics in his songs for 20 years.
“Gen Z has set its sights on Eminem, the monolithic rapper who’s sold tens of millions of albums while infuriating countless critics who branded him a misogynist, homophobe and abuse apologist over the last quarter-century. The latest attempt to ‘cancel’ Eminem began on TikTok last month when a user took issue with an excerpt from the rapper’s chart-topping 2010 hit ‘Love the Way You Lie.’”
Attempts to cancel Eminem over a decade ago failed, but the woke never sleep.
They’re redoubling their efforts.
“In the since-deleted post, which earned millions of views, the user highlighted the lyrics, ‘If she ever tries to f***ing leave again, I’ma tie her to the bed and set this house on fire.’ On the text over the video, she wrote, ‘Yesssss lets cancel him’…Gen Z’ers enthusiastically echoed the video’s sentiments, and videos containing the #canceleminem2021 have cumulatively earned more than 8.6 million views.”
The fact that social media users derive pleasure in looking for targets to cancel shows just reveals how much American culture has degraded.
Censorship has run amok, often with the encouragement of Democrats.
They foolishly believe they can wield the power of hard and soft censorship against their political opponents, and it will never be turned on them.
Eminem likely has enough cachet to withstand the cancel mob, but that might not always be the case.
Other celebrities found this out the hard way.
Comedienne Sarah Silverman, who recently said she no longer wants to be affiliated with any party after becoming disillusioned with the Democrats, lost a job in Hollywood because of an old blackface sketch she did.
The progressive mob came for her head, and the establishment didn’t have her back.
Cancel culture is out of control, and it won’t stop until more people on the Left stand up against it.
They’re so scared of being smeared as “right-wing” that they sit in silence while the American ethos of free speech is rapidly eroding.
Democrats are so focused on getting Fox News kicked off the air, they don’t realize the damage they’re doing to the country in order to score a cheap political victory.
