I hadn’t heard about this situation until I saw your post, but judging by your account of how this all played out, my guess is that it was Taylor’s previous support for Trump that turned this controversy into a full-blown “cancellation.” At that point, it didn’t matter that many of the criticisms directed his way were factually inaccurate. Proponents of cancel culture don’t typically care about being honest or fair-minded; they take pleasure in tearing other people down, and that’s especially true when the target is a Trump supporter.
