Earlier this week, the 27-year-old was a guest on Jameela Jamil's podcast I Weigh, where she made some very interesting points about cancel culture.
“I’ve been canceled so many times, I can’t even count…the hashtag #DemiIsOverParty, that whole thing. It just doesn’t even affect me anymore," the singer said.
"One, it’s not real," she continued. "I don’t think anyone was ever officially canceled, otherwise certain people wouldn’t have Grammys, wouldn’t have Oscars, certain people would be where they are in their positions."
I mean, points were made.
Demi continued, explaining, “There are some people, if you have used up your second and third chances with a certain topic, you’re canceled and you should stay canceled. But if you mess up, and you apologize and come forward and say, 'I’ve learned from this,' then let that be an example for other people so they can change too."
"Cancel culture will not work unless people have some sort of mercy. You have to be able to do that," she added. "I think if it’s somebody who refuses to learn, just has the entitlement of 'I can never do any wrong and I can get away with this,' then yeah...go ahead and cancel them.”
Don't let the haters get you down, Demi!
