#423 The Truth About Cancel Culture with Evan Nierman: Navigating the New Age Witch Hunt
Cancel culture isn’t just for the rich and famous— the next victim could be YOU 🏻
When you think about Cancel Culture, you might picture it going after big names like Dave Chappelle, J.K. Rowling, or Stephen Colbert. But here's the truth— it can hit regular folks like you and me! Like a 21st century witch hunt with invisible fingers pointing our way, the online mob comes along and we all get “torched.”
So, what exactly is cancel culture? Why is it happening? And how can we protect ourselves from becoming victims?
In this episode of #STFpod, I am joined by the author of “The Cancel Culture Curse,” Evan Nierman, a crisis PR guru and mastermind behind Red Banyan— a world-renowned PR agency. Throughout his career, Evan has provided strategic communications counsel to top business leaders, government officials, and presidential candidates.
Join us as we dig into the history and real-world impact of cancel culture. Plus, you'll leave with valuable strategies to handle a “cancel vulture” in full attack mode. So grab your notebook or open up your Notes app because you're in for a masterclass in modern-day survival.
And if you find this conversation as eye-opening as I did, don't forget to share it with someone who needs to hear it. Ready? Let's jump in!
