Thank you Emily, I enjoyed reading this article. I think it's important to highlight how you focused on companies being cancelled, not individuals. I think that cancel culture could be diverted into "pressure culture", with individuals coming together to put pressure on these companies to really change. It becomes difficult when we don't have any way to sincerely track if these companies are following through on it (although them saying they fixed it then being caught in the act would be the ultimate offense).

It is difficult for me to see the good in cancel culture, but I will watch your video and try to see if that opinion changes. As of now, I find the need to condemn individuals who think differently to be nonsensical, especially without first opening up a dialogue.
