that is a valid point. but the people who are a part of cancel culture use cancel culture to cancel(silence) people who think differently than them (such as Christians and conservatives). people have the right to have their own opinions. But cancel culture is intolerant to anyone whose opinion doesn't align with theirs, and that is wrong.
the heart of the problem is that any celebrity/person whose opinion publicly disagrees with the opinion of cancel culture and the general media will likely get canceled. Cancel culture is literally used to silence anyone who disagrees with its members' opinions.
