Rep. Dan Crenshaw wants to turn the page on cancel culture.
The Texas Republican wrote a children’s book, Fame, Blame, and the Raft of Shame , that “explore[s] cancel culture and the effect it has on society,” drawing on experiences from Crenshaw’s life.
“Intent is a really important question that I don’t know if people ask these days,” he told Fox News. “Did the person intend you harm, or did they just make a really dumb joke that just didn’t land right? Are they being canceled and yelled at because of something they did or said that was maybe clumsy and maybe stupid — and maybe they should apologize for — but they didn’t mean any harm toward anybody?
