In the midst of controversies such as that of the Golden Globes -which are being subjected to public scrutiny due to the lack of inclusion within its members-, the culture of cancellation has been one of the topics called for reflection in recent days. . Actor Dolad Glover, for example, has just shared on social networks his feelings regarding the cancellation, which according to him has led to the creation of many series, television shows and movies that are certainly boring.
According to his words, the fear of being canceled by some artistic work has generated that for now the authors only try to experiment and be risky with aesthetics and form, instead of with stories. Through its personal Twitter account, the African-American singer also objected against the cancellation as follows:
«I have read here many people complaining about how boring it is for them to review new things (movies or series) … We are seeing boring and not risky things because people are afraid of being canceled, so I feel that for now they can only experience with aesthetics ».
One of the most discussed issues on social media, especially regarding cancellation, is that many authors now fear touching sensitive issues in audiovisuals and even bringing inclusion to the work, although sometimes it occurs in an exaggerated way.
In recent years there have been several controversies where actors or films have been subjected to trials. The most recent and remembered is that of gone With the Wind, a 1939 film that was criticized for its demonstrative image of slavery. The film was pulled from HBO Max and the move received much criticism. The film was returned to the platform, but with a warning that the film could contain sensitive content.
For his part, Donald Glover is preparing the third season of Atlanta, a series he holds with Netflix Plus recently teamed with Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) to create a serial version of Mr. & Mrs. Smith for Amazon Prime Video.
