  1. Handling apologies in cancel culture is really bad, IMO. It goes like this:  if you don't apologize, you're guilty. If you do apologize, it's for PR reasons because you're guilty. Every apology has some sort of "cliche counter" as if they are insincere, it's like... how do you WANT them to apologize? It's always a lose-lose situation.

      actually apologize and earnestly try to do better, instead of some "sorry you were offended" cop-out

      I'm saying that even when they ARE sincere, people will sometimes still attack them. Even though they did bad things, they still shouldn't be outright mocked and meme'd over it. What measure is a non-apology?

      A lot of people are just stubborn like that, unfortunately.

      if they're getting attacked then it's likely people don't see the apology as sincere. that, or they don't consider an apology alone to be enough.

      and if you do a shitty thing then you are opening yourself up to mockery. even the most sincere apology doesn't automatically make everything better or protect you from all criticism. you've got to work to rebuild whatever trust you destroyed by being a shit. what it takes to do that is going to vary from person to person. and maybe if you were a big enough shit there just isn't anything you can do to get someone to trust you and you'll just have to learn to live with that.
