I believe in redemption. I believe it’s possible to realize that you did something terrible and sincerely repent.
But Chimamanda Adichie never apologized for participating in cancel culture mobs. She never apologized for hounding people who were, unlike her, poor and unknown. Driving somebody to attempt suicide. She never tried to rectify the damage. Never apologized, never retracted. She now doesn’t like cancel culture because it touched her. But what she herself did to others for absolutely no reason other than the desire to feel self-righteous remains unmentioned.
