It was a bad day for “cancel culture.”
HAVING A GOOD ONE
Matt Walsh: The Daily Wire commentator scored a “like” from country star Carrie Underwood for his anti-masking speech at a school board meeting. That set off a liberal meltdown, which just so happens to be one of Walsh’s favorite things in the world.
Carrie Underwood liked my video and now the mob is coming for her. She should know better than to like something that they don't like. This is an unforgivable sin. https://t.co/ksPEKrnCnT

HAVING A BAD ONE
Roslyn Talusan: The liberal writer and activist tried to shame a white cookbook author for writing about Asian food, but for whatever reason, this particular cancelation attempt blew up in Talusan’s face.
You racialize a stranger. Publicly disrespect their entire career. Receive backlash. Refuse to apologize, dig in deeper and paint yourself as the victim in a gratuitous pile-on you started. Then the coup de grace? You solicit donations from strangers to finance your self-care ?? pic.twitter.com/ybw9p5hpxn
