13 People Talk About Celebrities They Think Were Unfairly Canceled

There’s no doubt about it, we live in a time of cancel culture.

It’s everywhere these days and many of these folks who are being called out for past deeds totally deserve to be canceled.

But are there some celebs who have been canceled unfairly?

AskReddit users sure think so and here’s what they had to say.

1. We love you, Pee Wee!

“Paul Reubens (Pee Wee.

He was alone in an adult theatre.

Who gives a s**t?”

2. Wow.

“Eartha Kitt, CatWoman in the 3rd season of Batman.

Got blacklisted from Hollywood for calling out the president at the White House about the war.”

3. So dumb.

“Janet Jackson.

That was double extra unfair because not only was Justin Timberlake not cancelled, he played the halftime show again (in Minnesota in 2018).

The 2018 halftime show should have featured Janet performing with Justin and everybody involved in the 2004 shenanigans apologizing to Janet. Instead we got just Justin.”

4. Awful.

“Rose McGowan was canceled for basically calling out the shady s**t that Harvey Weinstein and others were doing.”

5. Former child star.

“Corey Feldmen literally warned about child a**se in their business and was speaking from experience and was shut down and Barbara Walters said “you’re damaging an entire industry.””

6. Great actor.

“Richard Gere.

The man was really popular as an actor until he mentioned the poor treatment of Tibet by the Chinese government.”

7. Ahead of her time.

“Sinead O’Connor.

All she did was let people know about the Catholic priest s** scandal before people wanted to hear it.

All of it was true and even worse than we could ever imagine, and she was crucified for it. (Pun intended)”

8. Scandal.

“Gary Condit.

He was a Congressman from California who lost re-election because a lot of people believed he had something to do with the disappearance of a woman with whom he had been having an affair.

So many people piled on him, including Trey Parker and Matt Stone on South Park, who ripped him a new a**hole for being guilty of m**der.

It eventually came to light after the woman’s remains were found that she had likely been randomly attacked and m**dered by a serial r**ist.

Years later, Parker and Stone admitted they owed Condit an apology, though they never actually apologized to him directly as far as I’m able to determine.”

9. Blacklisted.


Got paid $50,000 for her Oscar winning performance in Precious, because she was friends with director Lee Daniels.

When the film was released and started getting Oscar-buzz, producers Tyler Perry and Oprah tried to get her to do a ton of press tours and basically campaign for Academy Awards.

She refused, saying she was paid to act in the film, and that is all. She (deservedly) won the Oscar, but Oprah and Tyler basically had her blacklisted in Hollywood.”

10. They stood up.

“The Dixie Chicks.

Pretty cool that after the s**tshow of people h**ing on them for disagreeing with Bush, they made a k**ler song about it called “Not Ready to Make Nice”

“I make my bed and sleep like a baby with no regrets and I don’t mind sayin’ it’s a sad sad story that her mother will teach her daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger.

How in the world can the words that I say send somebody so over the edge that they’d write me a letter, saying that I better shut up and sing or my life would be over?”

That’s bada** and is another great song in their repertoire.”

11. Yes!

“EVERYONE who appeared on the Hollywood blacklist of the 1950s and ’60s for being suspected Communists or sympathizers.”

12. Who cares?

“George Michael.

A public bathroom may not be the beat place to get freaky, but at least it was consensual.”

13. He’s back now.

“Brendan Fraser.

Dude spoke up about being s**ually a**aulted and was never heard from again until recently.

He seems like such a good guy so I’m glad he’s back in the spotlight.”
