Annuler la culture (Wikipedia)

Annuler la culture is a phrase contemporary to the late 2010s and early 2020s used to refer to a cultural phenomenon in which some who are deemed to have acted or spoken in an unacceptable manner are ostracized, boycottedou shunned. This shunning may extend to social or professional circles—whether on médias sociaux or in person—with most high-profile incidents involving celebrities. Those subject to this ostracism are said to have been "canceled".

The term "cancel culture" came into circulation in the late 2010s and early 2020s and has mostly negative connotations. The term "call-out culture" is used by some as more positive verbiage for the same concept.

Some critics argue that cancel culture has a chilling effect on public discourse, is unproductive, does not bring real social change, causes intolerance, and amounts to cyberbullying. Some proponents argue that calls for "cancellation" promote accountability, give disenfranchised people a voice, and are a form of free speech. Still others question whether cancel culture is an actual phenomenon, arguing that similar forms of boycotting have existed long before the origin of the term "cancel culture."

While the careers of some public figures have been impacted by boycotts that have been widely described as "cancellation", others who have complained of cancellation have successfully continued their careers.
