We all remember the God awful years that were 2020, and 2021.
The COVID-19 pandemic was at its peak, there was a ton of political unrest, and on top of that, people were getting canceled for saying “hello” the wrong way, and banished into oblivion.
Looking back at it now, it was by far the strangest and most unsettling two years of my life, and I’m sure tons of people can say the same.
Luckily enough, the chaos of the COVID era has cooled off (for now), but we still see cancel culture rearing its ugly head, especially on places like Twitter (now called “X,” I guess) mob. I suppose X Mob sounds a bit more sinister…
With that being said, one famed actor is getting sick and tired of “cancel culture,” and she ain’t afraid to say it…
“I’m so over cancel culture. I probably just got canceled by saying that. I just don’t understand what it means…
Is there no redemption? I don’t know. I don’t put everybody in the Harvey Weinstein basket.”
Incase you’ve been living under a rock, Weinstein is a former film producer who is currently serving 39 years in prison, all stemming from sexual assault and sexual misconduct. Essentially, he used his power and influence in the movie industry to lure aspiring actresses into bed with him, both willingly and unwillingly, for the chance at roles.
Let’s be clear… this isn’t what Aniston is talking about.
Aniston also noted in the interview that she did not have any uncomfortable situations with the former producer, but she sure as hell didn’t like him. Which also suggests that he reputation for being a scumbag predator was well-known in the industry:
“He’s not a guy, you’re like, ‘God, I can’t wait to hang out with Harvey.’ Never. You were actually like, ‘Oh God, OK, suck it up.’
I remember actually, he came to visit me on a movie to pitch me a movie. And I do remember consciously having a person stay in my trailer.”
But, if you think Aniston is apart of this raging Twitter “cancel culture” mob, think again.
