Dave Chappelle and the Politics of Cancel Culture

It’s almost impossible for a day to pass without hearing that someone or something has been "cancelled." In a much more politically correct society, things that were admissible years ago have consequences today and many are calling for accountability for all issues. Just recently, we’ve seen Dave Chappelle's latest special create a Netflix controversy while Raiders head coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign over wildly flagrant emails from a decade ago. Complex News anchor Claire Ateku talks to New Yorkers about “cancel culture” and to find out if it’s possible to make a comeback from being cancelled.
