She continued, 'The internet can fuel a lot of hate & anger and is the nucleus of cancel culture…but I believe it can also be a place filled with education, conversation, communication, & connection'

Cancel culture

'It's easier to cancel someone than to find forgiveness and compassion in ourselves or take the time to change hearts and minds.'

During his performance, he told the crowd, "If you didn't show up today with HIV, AIDS, any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that'll make you die in two or three weeks, put your cellphone light up."

He also targeted gay men who perform sexual activities in parking lots by implying they're not welcome.
