Recently, the actress talked about the internet’s cancel culture in her interview with Vanity Fair. The actress stated,

“What I struggle with in terms of cancel culture is the term cancel culture—the whole concept behind cancelling a human being, like they’re an appointment. No person will not make mistakes in their life. The point of being alive is figuring it out. Hurting other people, harming other people is not okay. There are consequences for those actions.”

She also talked about Twitter and said,

“But the concept of the Twitterverse deciding if someone just all of a sudden doesn’t exist anymore is horrifying, heartbreaking, and wrong. I do think that it will pass. I believe that people want to live in a better world, ultimately. Also, Twitter makes up like, what, 12 percent of the world? I mean, some of these people can’t even spell.”
