The Land of Milk, Honey – and cancel culture.
California has been named the fastest U.S. state to ‘cancel’ a star because of their controversial views, according to a recent survey by OnlineCasinos.com.
The study discovered that the Golden State had the greatest unfollow rate for canceled celebrities, with 59% of people polled stating they would do so – and the primary reason being “inappropriate social media actions.” Californians also claimed that it would take them more than a year to re-follow a star who had been unfollowed.
The survey found that those in Kentucky are the most inclined to post badly about a canceled celebrity on social media, with 18% of respondents stating they would do so.
Conversely, people in Idaho appear to be the most understanding on social media, with 64% of respondents from that state stating that they would not unfollow someone based on their being canceled. Furthermore, the state’s weighted score for overall cancel culture was the lowest, coming in at a dismal 0.
New York, on the other hand, ranks in the middle: in a ranking from 0 (low cancel culture) to 100 (high cancel culture), the Empire State scored 56.
The term “cancel culture” is defined by Merriam-Webster as “the practice or tendency of engaging in mass canceling as a way of expressing disapproval and exerting social pressure.”
