  1. Unfortunately, cancel culture can go both ways. We have people disowning family members for opposing Trump. While on the other end of the spectrum, celebrities like J.K. Rowling and Dave Chappelle face backlash on their OPINIONS on transgender issues. People need to wake up

  2. Alexi was up front about it, and apologized for it two years ago. She kept apologizing for it. Alexi went to the both the Asian and LGBTQ communities to apologize as well, during that time, over and over again. I guess, it is fire the black girl, so we can hire a white man. That was the plan.

  3. When I was a teenager I thought that people in general sucked, girls were too needy and clingy and boys were total idiots whose main goal was to have sex …with anyone, so I am soooo glad that there was no social media back then. We didn’t even have cell phones. Teen Vogue should have just had her do a on tv interview explaining and showing how she had grown evidenced by her work from the past five years.

  4. Oh I got it, when it happens to the right, you guys are fine with it but yeah it happens to the left it's fine. But that's right, she's in the 10% of "REAL" cancel culture. What a joke you guys are. How do you expect any sane person to take you seriously?

  5. Honestly TYT, get control of your whining little "victim hood" culture loving leftist! Just the worst people on the face of the earth

  6. Your whole channel is a bunch a judgmental assholes the put down everything on the right. All you do is try to cancel people! Anybody that doesn't see this is deaf, dumb, and blind. You only support her because she's on the left.

  7. Yes, smear the covington school kids, teenagers as suprem acists and give this lady a pass for her rac ist statements, as a teenager. TYT as usual!.

  8. No excuse for racism nor homophobia- she is not from a generation where such vile speech was common place. She is of a generation where most know better. One would think that publication like Vogue wouldn’t offer such high positions to someone who spewed such hatred as a 17 year old ten years ago… it shows a lack of integrity that is unusual of her generation.

  9. Hahahaha she was hired for political reporting….. she is not the person for the job- I am sure that there’s multiple journalists her age who will fit the job better.

  10. Has she only apologized for her past tweets when she was faced with her homophobia and racism or did she perhaps 5 or more years ago apologize without prompting from public pressure or was public pressure needed for her to apologize, then she is not an appropriate hire.

  11. She was a minor when she said a lot of it barely able to vote in a few. The brain doesn't fully mature until 25 and teenagers do stupid things. That's harsh. Think back to you're angelic teen years… should you be fired now for something you did then. Then how would you feel.

  12. They should look at when things were posted and realize it was a different time when everyone ripped on everyone. The past 4 years. Should be unacceptable to post stuff like that now, but people repent, learn and grow. She will be fine and she will be accepted by the colors of community. This country has done a number on everyone who lives in it because of how this country was conceived and the ones that run and have ran it. We can forgive some things and shouldn't reach way out there.

  13. In 2009 I was a pro-life republican, evangelical. In 2021, I'm a liberal, pagan, feminist. I believed what my father indoctrinated me to believe when I was a teenager. I've learned and grown so much in the last 12 years. Why don't we see what kind of person she is now before we fire her?

  14. We can not condemn people for mistakes made when they were teenagers… who never makes mistakes? As long as they evolve and change , everyone deserves a second chance

  15. I teach teenagers. This is not okay. We cannot destroy people's careers for something they said or wrote when they were 16-17-years-old. Teens can be dumb. They make bad decisions. I'm not saying that what she wrote was okay, it wasn't. But this cancel culture doesn't give people an opportunity to show that they have changed since they were a teen. Instead of forcing her out of a job, she could have been given the opportunity to explain how she is different now as an adult.

  16. I don't consider 17 year olds children. That piece of crap that shot two people during some protest was 17. I will say at least she seems to feel sorry for what she did. However, she didn't express herself until after the emails came out.
