Johnny Depp appeared at the 69th San Sebastian Film Festival yesterday, criticizing “Cancel Culture”, saying “No one is safe.”

“Cancel Culture” refers to the phenomenon that public figures on social media are collectively boycotted by public opinion because of “problem” speech or behavior. “Problems” usually include crimes, racial and gender discrimination, historical disputes, etc.

The celebrities who were initially “cancelled” were mostly involved in some serious “crimes.”

For example, Kevin Spacey and American producer Harvey Weinstein, who were exposed to the sexual assault scandal.

Their resistance is considered by many to be “deserved of their sins” and “holding the powerful to be responsible for their actions.”
