Madison Beer is no stranger to being criticized on the internet, so it's not surprising she had some thoughts when she was recently asked about her opinion on cancel culture.
Over the course of the past few years, the 21-year-old singer has been called out for everything from her likeness to Ariana Grande to her appearance at the BLM protests to naming Lolita as her favorite book, which caused #MadisonBeerIsOverParty to trend on Twitter.
The intense online criticism she has faced has led her to strongly speak out against bullying...as well as issue a few apologies.
But during an Instagram Q&A session over the weekend, Madison was asked about her thoughts on cancel culture as a whole, which attempts to hold public figures accountable for their negative actions and has tried to bring her down so many times.
Madison started off by saying she believes there are "a lot of layers" to cancel culture, starting with the fact that celebrities are not deemed "as human as everyone else."
"Everyone is a human being. We are all growing and learning. Take it easy on each other and stop assuming your favorite celeb, artist, or influencer is perfect. I promise you'll be less disappointed in people you don't even know. You see what is chosen for you to see," Madison continued.
Madison added that she didn't see anything "progressive or helpful" about incessantly bullying someone for a mistake that they are trying to grow from.
And while she's opposed to cancel culture, she admitted that there are things that public figures have done that are "unforgivable" and should be held accountable for.
Madison concluded by reminding fans that "kindness, compassion, and empathy are really cool. People should just practice these simple things a bit more. Don't just jump to assumptions. Again, you really don't know these people."
