1. Cancel culture sucks.

What the media did with Carson King was shitty. The only good thing to come out of it was Aaron Calvin getting his ass canceled.

2. What power do individuals have to cancel a celebrity career?

Limited at best, unless they have made themselves vulnerable by committing bad actions or actions that are seen as bad by corporate media. A lot of celebrities complaining about cancel culture are still able to put out stuff if they choose to.
