Man who claims to despise ‘cancel culture surprisingly happy to see Gary Lineker cancelled

author avatar by 1 year ago

A man who has made it his mission to call out cancel culture in all forms as part of his ongoing commitment to free speech, has this evening expressed his delight at Gary Lineker’s cancellation.

Lineker has been asked to step back from his role presenting Match of the Day after the BBC decided it needed to review his use of social media to ensure he stopped tweeting extremely accurate criticism of the people who gave the BBC’s new Chairman his job.

Simon Williams, 42, has become well-known amongst his social circle for being the first person to call out cancel culture any time anyone he likes faces consequences for things they have said and done.

‘Friend’ Pete Smith told us, “It started when Jeremy Clarkson lost his job for punching a producer. Derek said it was political correctness gone mad, and that cancel culture would be the end of civilisation as we know it.

“Since then, he’s blamed cancel culture for absolutely everything from Boris Johnson losing his job, to Neighbours ending, to Toblerone changing the design on their packaging.

“To say he hates cancel culture with a passion simply doesn’t reflect the strength of feeling his has on this subject. So yes, we were all surprised to see him celebrating Gary Lineker’s suspension on his Facebook account.

“All I can think is that he believes cancel culture is only a ‘bad thing’ when the people getting cancelled are people you like and agree with, and that cancel culture is perfectly acceptable when they are people you don’t like saying things you disagree with.

“I did consider calling him a massive hypocrite, but he’d probably try and cancel me.”

I agree with Gary – get your mug here!
