Dave Chappelle, NYC nurse find right way to kick cancel culture to the curb

Call it the revenge of the canceled. 

Earlier this month when New York City nurse Sarah Comrie was leaving a 12-hour hospital shift, she was confronted by a group of teenagers as she tried to access the Citi Bike she had paid for, what happened next has become all too common. 

In a viral video the scuffle over the two-wheeler made its way across the internet and the next thing you know Comrie was dubbed “Citi Bike Karen,” solely because the teenagers in question were Black and she is White.

Last week, her lawyer produced a set of records proving that, lo and behold, it was Comrie who rented the bike and was then harassed by these teenagers who physically kept her from accessing her ride home.  

Like many others, Crump quietly deleted the tweet in which he accused Comrie of racism, quite possibly out of legitimate fear that she could take legal action against such a potentially defamatory misrepresentation, but without so much as saying he was sorry.

Perhaps Crump saw no need to apologize because he believes this is the exception that proves the rule, that even though the bike was rightfully hers, even though he wrongly jumped to a conclusion, he had a right to do so based on how racist he believes our society to be. 

What people like Comrie have learned after more than a decade of “cancel culture” is that apologies don’t work, compromise doesn’t work. One must firmly state that they are not guilty of their supposed crimes and demand retractions.

We need more Sarah Comries, we need more people who will stand up for themselves and for the truth when the canceling hordes come calling with their digital pitchforks.  

It takes guts, but ultimately, we must all refuse to be canceled.
