Cancel culture has become a hot topic in recent years, with many people finding themselves on the wrong side of an internet mob for something they said or did. Global crisis communications expert Evan Nierman and colleague Mark Sachs are poised to disrupt the disruptive phenomenon of cancel culture with their upcoming book, “The Cancel Culture Curse: From Rage to Redemption in a World Gone Mad,” which hit shelves earlier this month.
The book examines cancel culture and provides a playbook for readers to avoid being canceled. It asks if we have entered an era where people cannot make mistakes and where no apology or change of heart can ever deliver forgiveness. Making a comeback used to be a celebrated American ideal, but have the roads to redemption been permanently blocked by internet mobs seeking vengeance? Nierman and Sachs tackle these questions and more in their highly anticipated book, which defines cancel culture as a phenomenon and identifies the six essential elements that separate instances of cancel culture from typical PR crises.
The authors coin a new term, “cancel vulture,” to describe people who thrive on making all mistakes permanent, shutting down debate, and picking apart those who are left to die on the side of the Internet highway. The book offers a variety of fascinating case studies and interviews with some of the most well-known victims of cancel culture and provides readers with a playbook for survival. It shares best practices and offers guidance for what to do if you or those you know find yourselves the target of a cancel culture mob.
Nierman and Sachs state that “this is a book that matters” because cancel culture affects everyone, not just large corporations or A-list celebrities. Every single human being makes mistakes and is therefore in danger of being struck down by cancel culture. The Cancel Culture Curse is the definitive guide to the disruptive phenomenon that has come to characterize modern American life.
