Goldie Hawn denounces cancel culture in recent interview

 March 9, 2023

While Hollywood has long been known for kowtowing to the left, veteran actress Goldie Hawn recently confessed that she's had enough of the woke mob. 

"I think that it’s important to stand vigilant on people’s behavior and really understand when they’re out of line and be able to handle it," Fox News quoted Hawn as telling Variety magazine.

"Schools are being politicized."

"But I’m concerned about these areas: Suddenly you don’t have a job. Suddenly you can’t date a woman within the business or you’re going to get fired. They’re canceling books – classic books that no one can read. I don’t like that," Hawn said, adding, "There’s mistrust everywhere."

"Schools are being politicized. But for the greater good of our children? No one’s really looking at that," she continued.

Hawn also denounced cancel culture, saying the phenomenon "scares me more than anything" and describing it as "rigid, concretized thinking, which is not good."

"The level of sensitivity is so high that comedians are afraid to tell certain jokes the way they used to," Hawn complained. "And it’s a bit of a quandary for comedians; there are things you can’t say and so on and so forth. I mean, it’s fine.

Calls for Chris Rock to be canceled

"There are certain areas that I agree with," the 77-year-old acknowledged. "But the level of sensitivity is unforgiving. That’s not a good feeling when you’re in a creative mode."

Hawn also made reference to comedian Chris Rock, who was slapped by Will Smith last year while hosting the Oscars.

Smith has faced calls for his own cancellation, and they grew louder this week following his recent special "Chris Rock: Selective Outrage."

Critics took issue with jokes that Rock directed towards Meghan Markle and her claim of experiencing racism from members of the British royal family.

"Some of that s--t she went through was not racism," Rock insisted. "It was just some in-law s--t. Sometimes it's just some in-law s--t."

"Because she's complaining like, what the f--k is she talking about? 'Oprah they’re so racist, they wanted to know how brown the baby was going to be.'"

"That's not racist," Rock declared, adding, "Because even black people want to know how brown the baby is going to be."
