Red Banyan Founder and CEO Evan Nierman, co-author of The Cancel Culture Curse: From Rage to Redemption in a World Gone Mad, discussed the phenomenon of cancel culture in a wide-ranging interview on Atlanta News First.

During the interview, Evan defined cancel culture, and explained the six characteristics that need to happen to qualify something as a cancel culture event. He explained how the acronym CANDEM is an easy way to remember the traits and briefly outlined the makeup of each element.

Evan also talked about how the act of canceling can affect an ordinary citizen much differently than someone rich and famous because they don’t have the same resources available to fight back.
