The ongoing conversation about “cancellation culture” doesn’t seem to stray from our schedules. Although there are mixed opinions about it, some people don’t think it’s real, and others think it only affects certain celebrities. For example, recently, DaBaby has come under heavy criticism, with many calling for his career to be called off after he made insensitive comments at Rolling Loud in July. However, after several apologies and his recent performances in Boosie Bash and Hot 97’s Summer Jam, it appears.
Fortunately for DaBaby, he was fortunate to recover from the cancellation and continue his career, but that’s not always the case for other celebrities who have had to deal with public scrutiny. One, in particular, is Christie Michel. The former ‘R&B Diva’ had time today to talk about how the culture abolition has affected her career and how she is constantly compared to Kanye West. On her Instagram page, she retweeted a tweet from Jawn Murray posted by The Jasmine Brand.
Jawn tweeted, “Since our culture is so fond of Kanye West’s #Donda album, it’s time to call off ChrisetteM’s cancellation! I hated singing her at the 45th inauguration…but #ChrisetteMichele disrespected our history/ancestors; didn’t rock the MAGA hat; and she never did a covert campaign for influence In the elections!” If you remember, Kristi came under public scrutiny after she sang at Donnie’s inauguration in 2017 after the Black Falls said she shouldn’t have taken the check. Chrisette shared a lengthy note addressing Jawn’s tweet. She wrote that she thinks most of the comments on the topic are well-meaning, but it’s not really related to the outcome of the conversation but agreed that it’s an interesting topic.
Although it has been five years since the event, many roommates have defended it, saying it was never canceled. The R&B singer also said that no one can cancel Chrisette because canceling culture isn’t real. Tank commented, “It’s been tough work for black women, but lately black women have been shining in all kinds! It’s time for you to do what you’re doing! Don’t let social media, people, family, or anyone else dictate your connection! Let’s go!! We need some new music now!”
We hope Chrisette will use this as motivation to release some new music.
