In a new interview, Sharon Stone called cancel culture “the stupidest thing I have ever seen happen.” She shared her thoughts on cancel culture while promoting her new book The Beauty of Living Twice in a new interview on SiriusXM’s Just Jenny.
“I think cancel culture is the stupidest thing I have ever seen happen,” Stone says to host Jenny Hutt. “I think when people say things that they feel and mean, and it’s offensive to you, it’s a brilliant opportunity for everyone to learn and grow and understand each other.”
Sharon Stone ‘cancels’ cancel culture
She continues, “We all come from different ages, different cultures, different backgrounds, different things, and have had different experiences, different traumas, different upbringings, different parents, different religious backgrounds, different everything.”
Stone also said she believes that people should “give people an opportunity to discuss things before you wipe out their entire person over a statement or a comment or a misunderstanding.”
Cancel culture has been living in the media recently
“Stop being so small. People have done so much more than one sentence,” she adds, saying that people should “grow up” and “grow some empathy.”
This comes shortly after Sharon Osbourne has been enduring the side effects of cancel culture after she left The Talk following an explosive argument with co-host Sheryl Underwood regarding Piers Morgan’s comments on Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah. Osbourne defended Morgan, calling him a friend of hers, and believes that she was set up on the show to look bad for defending him in such a way.
