He spoke clearly and directly. Corey Taylor, Leader of loopspoke of the so-called “cancellation culture” in which he says that he does not solve anything and even says that he is making the problem worse.
This concept has great relevance today, although it is not new. The “culture of cancellation” is about ending a public person’s career after making an offensive comment or taking the wrong action that is wrong by the company’s parameters. As a result, a chain reaction is set in motion that tries to boycott the work the person has done, including stopping buying their books, listening to their music and denouncing their social media accounts.
In a recent interview with NME about his latest work “CMFT”, he made some comments about what is going on on social media and what he is trying to capture in his song “Culture Head”.
“It’s about social media, the state of politics, and what’s going on in the world. Toxicity. The way people talk to each other. It’s so rampant and wild and for the first time in my life I can’t see a way out. I don’t see any way to make things better. And I really wish I could do it. I’m trying not to let myself down, but how can you not? “”
Here he is asked about his position on “the rejection”, he stated that “it is about the young generation, the most progressive generation who believe they have to solve everything from extreme to extreme the other”.
But what they do is take out the simple goals. If you really wanted to partake in the culture of rejection, there are many people out there who deserve it much more than many who end up. The first would be the fucking president of my damn country. They only choose marginalized groups, ”he said.
He added that “the cancellation does not solve the problem. In a way, this makes the problem worse. Here this “progressive generation” doesn’t get it because it’s more complicated than something they can read on a phone. “”
The “Fuenteovejuna” of our time?
Lope de Vega in his work of the same name Sourceovejuna tells the story of the Fuente Ovejuna and their subsequent uprising against the abuse they received from their commanding officer, who was ultimately murdered. When asked who killed him, they replied, “All in all, it was Fuenteovejuna. “”
This term was coined to denote the exemplary punishment that a community or a specific group seeks for what harms them. For the sake of justice, they are not taken into account. It should be mentioned, however, that in “Fuenteovejuna” a crime committed by the commander was punished. On the other hand, in the culture of cancellation, the same thing doesn’t always happen because the interpretation of mistakes or errors is often very subjective.
A more recent example of this concerns the famous writer JK Rowling, who also wrote the Harry Potter books. Made your comments on the trans community funen in social networks, which, among other things, indicate that they no longer read their novels. Is this a crime that should be punished so brutally? or has freedom of expression and expression been lost?
Are we facing a new “Fuenteovejuna”?
