Do Ezra Miller and Will Smith deserve a second chance?

Cancel culture has become a prevalent practice in Hollywood in the last decade, and somehow it has unlocked a new fear amongst celebrities and influencers. One wrong move and you are canceled – usually by people who used to love and support you and your work. More often than not, celebrities disappear from the face of the media following threats and attacks hurled at them.

Ezra Miller and Will Smith have done terrible things that have caused a public disturbance, and the situation is only made worse by the media propagating that they will never book any job again. It has been the oldest tale told by many generations, that being in the spotlight means you have to be ready to get judged, hated, or canceled. Why are we bringing these people down when we know, for a fact, that they need help?

The actor is currently going under treatment for his mental health issues.

Miller already apologized for the actions he has done, and he will be held accountable once he is in stable condition.

Ezra Miller’s fans showed their unwavering compassion online. Here are some of their tweets:

Smith has been in the entertainment industry longer than fans could remember. He has starred in so many movies and is one of the most sought-after talents in this era. The actor has already made a public apology, owned up to his mistake, and has been banned from attending the Academy Awards for the next ten years. On top of that, Smith has been struggling with his family issues, and the infamous joke certainly pushed his buttons.

Despite the ridicule Will Smith has received, many of his supporters claim they never canceled him. It all boils down to understanding that these actors are humans as well. They make mistakes, and they struggle with life and career just like any of us. Cancel culture has always been a toxic practice that robs people of the chance of redeeming themselves. The culture that we need to propagate is compassion and goodwill.

Ezra Miller and Will Smith are currently on the road to becoming better humans and holding themselves accountable. The former is already one step ahead to recovery after seeking professional help, while the latter has recently starred in a new film months after he took a break from the limelight.
