JK Rowling Joins Those People Who Signs Letter Calling For An End To ‘Cancel Culture’

JK Rowling and Margaret Atwood both joined 150 other writers in signing an open letter calling for free speech and condemned the restriction of debate as well as cancel culture.

‘Cancel Culture’ is a form of the online boycott in which a person who has expressed a controversial point of view or has done something in the past that is considered bad, is called out for that behavior, leading to them being ‘canceled’.

JK Rowling who started a debate after her comment about transgender people has started a new controversy. She entered her name in the letter which said: “The free exchange of information and ideas, the lifeblood of a liberal society, is daily becoming more constricted.”

The letter title ‘A Letter on Justice and Open Debate’ highlighted the fact that this cancel culture caused harm to many people.

Earlier Taylor Swift had talked about this creeping cancel culture. She said: “When you say someone is canceled, it’s not a TV show. It’s a human being. You’re sending mass amounts of messaging to this person to either shut up, disappear, or it could also be perceived as, ‘Kill yourself’.”

The letter will be published in Harper’s Magazine and includes signatures from JK Rowling, activist Noam Chomsky, New York Times opinion editor Bari Weiss, author Salman Rushdie, and Martin Amis, Margaret Atwood, etc.

Harry Potter author took to Twitter and wrote: “I was very proud to sign this letter in defense of a foundational principle of a liberal society: open debate and freedom of thought and speech.”
