cancellation culture

In an article about Trump canceling the in-person Republican National Convention, the following line appears:

“This is the cancel culture run wild,” said one top Republican donor.

…I can’t tell whether the donor intended that line as a joke, or whether they were just unclear on the meaning of the phrase cancel culture. I’m guessing the latter, because the rest of the quote suggests that the donor in question was angry rather than amused.

But it does make me want to start using the phrase cancel culture every time any event of any kind is canceled.
