Word Bomb

2020 is definitely #cancelled, but who can cancel who, and where does boycotting end and cancelling start? Pippa and Karina data-mine Twitter, sort through the endless op-eds, and debate the catharsis and consequences of call-out culture. Online and IRL, cashing in on the thriving "attention economy" has never been so easy-or so fraught. For some extra reading, we recommend checking out the article "Everyone Is Canceled" by NYT writer Jonah Engel Bromwich, as well as "Why we can't stop fighting about cancel culture" by Vox writer Aja Romano.
