California cancels more celebrities on social media than any other state. Could it be because we have the most celebrities?

Cancel culture is defined as "the practice or tendency of engaging in mass canceling as a way of expressing disapproval and exerting social pressure."

California has the highest weighted score for overall cancel culture, the study found, with a score of 100. It takes the average Californian about a year to re-follow a canceled celebrity.

Although we unfollow in California, Kentucky are the most likely to write negatively on social media about a canceled star, with 18% of respondents saying they would do so, according to the study. Idaho seem to be the most forgiving on social media, with 64% of Idaho-based respondents saying they would not unfollow someone based on them being canceled.

The study surveyed 2,000 Americans about their opinions toward cancel culture, with the survey consisting of a weighted scoring system that considered whether respondents would unfollow a canceled celebrity, whether they would write negatively on social media about a canceled star, and https://ktla.com/news/california/california-has-the-highest-level-of-cancel-culture-in-america-study-finds/how long it would take them to refollow a canceled celeb.
