Music projects and artists that are founded
Today’s society is involved in a moral vortex between what is considered politically correct and what is not, and that with the use of social networks (with various political and cultural factors) pronouncements of behavior that transcend the individual in moral, physical. or the psychological way, becoming much more visible and much more common, creating a culture of cancellation that condemns everything that has been violated against human rights and (it must be said) correct principles dictated politically during this particular period of history.
On the other hand, considering that 100 cancellations are governed by these understandings would be a fallacy, because although this movement has helped to make visible aggressions and abuses, they are sometimes subjected to many causes that include both cultural and individual characteristics (socio-economic. position, sex, nation, religion , etc.
On the other hand, this movement of social deconstruction has had a great resonance in the different generations who live together every day and intervenes in various areas of society, such as the world of work (where more and more people have reported abuse on the part of their employers or their colleagues), the world of entertainment (resigning the big managers , actors, actresses and others), the world of sports, the world of art and so on.
Thus, the social sphere of the world of music has not refrained from the effect of this movement, and over the past many decades (and only these), the so-called “funas” have become more common with various artists and connections. with great praise within the industry, as many of them face charges or, in the best cases, repent publicly.
For this reason, today we will talk about those cases in which the rope reached them so strongly that it had a direct impact on their musical career.
Musicians and projects canceled

Chris Brown, the American singer, is one of those people who, without a doubt, should not enjoy the right to freedom, since the complaint in 2009 for domestic violence against his partner at the time, Rihanna (whom he physically raped in the face due to anger. ), many testimonies emerged from the accuser of the singer’s assault and rape; However, despite the fact that his career had a big decline because of what happened with Rihanna, the rapper continued his artistic career without any criticism.
If we talk about ropes, first on the list is Mr. Kayne West.
