Hollywood icon and Dynasty star Dame Joan Collins has spoken out and blasted “morons” who are behind, and support cancel culture. She revealed she avoids social media because anything posted online can always be taken out of context.

Speaking on why she won’t get involved in social media and how posts can be misconstrued, she said: “People can’t say what they think because they’ll get cancelled.

“Dredging up tweets from 15-years-ago, about what somebody might have said when they were 14, I think that’s sick.

“I don’t want to engage in any way, shape or form with these morons,” Collins explained.

Earlier this month, Collins made similar comments to The Daily Mail, arguing: “The thing is you can’t say anything these days without being cancelled.

“Am I allowed to say, ‘These orchids are fake?’ because they are! Well, forget it, I’m not kow-towing to cancel culture.”

Collins has also slammed attempts to cancel the historical import of World War II-era British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

She has also taken aim at “woke” royal couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, making it clear that she’s had enough of them.

“I think they’ve had enough oxygen in the press,” she replied bluntly when asked about them.

She went on to defend television personality Piers Morgan when he refused to offer an apology for criticising the Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired earlier this year.

Cancel culture, or “call-out” culture, is a modern form of ostracism in which someone is thrust out of social or professional circles.

Another Hollywood star who has spoken out about cancel culture is Sir Billy Connolly, who has previously stated he would “never make it today” in comedy due to the situation.

The comedian believes things “have changed forever” in regards to what can and can’t be said in the name of humour.

Talking to Newstalk ZB, he explained: “Because of political correctness people have pulled in the horns, I couldn’t have started today with the talent I had then.

“There was a comedian who had a series of television, and the suits involved were going to take it off at the first commercial break, they have got no bravery.”

Jimmy Carr is also amongst the array of celebrities who have spoken out against “cancel culture” and recently spoke to LADbible about his views.

“It used to be, if you didn’t like a comedian that was on telly or something, you’d tut and switch the channel.

“Now you can go on social media and go, “This f*****g guy, I’ve never liked this guy, I think it’s good everyone’s got a voice, but it doesn’t mean that just because you don’t like it, we should get rid of it.”

Speaking with Radio Times, Ricky Gervais said: “Now, [The Office] would suffer because people would take things literally.

“There are these outrage mobs who take things out of context, this was a show about everything it was about difference.

“It was about sex, race, all the things that people fear to even be discussed or talked about now, in case they say the wrong thing and they are cancelled.”
