Are people finally fed up with 'Cancel Culture'?

Although the headline to this article implies the sales increased after the 'racial slur', I think the critical issue is his being cancelled. People are fed up with it. Similar buying surges happened after the Goya Foods CEO got cancelled, and more recently the MyPillow Guy. I know I'm personally VERY fed up. I never heard of this guy, but this article makes me want to go buy his CD.

    I am fed up with "cancel culture". I'm equally fed up with articles that talk about something someone said that was sooooooo baaaaaad, but can't even give a hint as to what was said or the context in which it was said. How does the reader/listener supposed to know if what was said/done was sooooooo baaaaaaaaad? Oh, yeah, I know - we're supposed to take it on face value the author/reporter is all virtuous and would never lead us astray and, therefore, the victim -er -ah transgressor must indeed be really really baaaaaaaad!

    Sorry for the rant, but I actually thought the article might be honest and informative. Silly me. The author dodged the most important part.

    The problem is these 'cancel culture' people don't understand a damn thing. They are totally ignorant of how we got where we are today. They are set to destroy it because they don't understand it. They may never understand. They don't want to understand.

    I suspect it’s more people giving the middle finger to cancel culture.
    The guy they interviewed is way out of touch. He says radio airplay is a primary driver of consumption. I can’t tell you the last time I listened to the radio.
