Maher appears to be close to joining a long list of celebrities who have been “cancelled” in 2021, including Chrissy Teigen and Piers Morgan.
Comedian Bill Maher
Maher invited comedian Nikki Glaser to his show on Friday, and it wasn’t long before the topic of cancel culture arose.
Cancel culture refers to the practice of withdrawing support for a celebrity or public figure by boycotting their shows, movies and products due to their controversial behaviors or statements – though it should be noted that this is a complex topic, and the definition of what it means to be “cancelled” varies from person to person.
Maher asked Glaser why she wasn’t afraid of cancel culture, saying, “please don’t apologize. Because there’s too much apologizing in North America.”
However, the younger comedian had the opposite stance on the matter. She insisted that she loves apologizing, but Maher was skeptical.
