As the cancel culture movement continues to gain momentum, more and more people are being called out for their past actions and beliefs.
The facade of self affirming virtue that participating in cancel culture, brings to one’s mind, is deceitful and sad. Majority of cancel culture participants ignore the positive current trajectory that the subject might be heading towards.
Leaving on its way more destruction, then anything else. People that participate in cancel culture also tend to ignore and be blind to the relevancy of the subject being attacked, has in their own lives, therefore much less in the wide spectrum of other peoples lives.
It seems that not even sacred cows are safe from the ever-growing list of things that are no longer considered acceptable. J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series, has come under fire in recent years for her personal beliefs, which many consider to be transphobic. Despite this backlash, Rowling’s Wizarding World remains as popular as ever, with the release of Hogwarts Legacy – a video game set in the wizarding world – garnering much excitement among gamers.
While some have attempted to cancel the game due to Rowling’s involvement, it seems that cancel culture has met its match in the form of one of the most beloved book series of all time.
J.K. Rowling’s personal beliefs have caused a stir among the cancel culture police, but that hasn’t stopped the video game Hogwarts Legacy from becoming one of the most popular games out there.
Despite the push from cancel culture to try and tarnish J.K Rowling’s legacy due to her personal beliefs, Hogwarts Legacy has still become one of the most sought-after video games out right now.

Gaming enthusiasts have waited in anticipation for this game since its announcement, and it looks like they finally got their wish. The success of Hogwarts Legacy sans cancel culture speaks to the ability of gamers to separate fandom from modern day ethics debates.
Interesting fact is that the Hogwarts legacy has been in development for about six years, which is a long time in today’s modern social media world.

With cancel culture rearing its’ ugly head, a great fanfare was made when the legacy of Hogwarts overcame it despite J.K. Rowling’s personal beliefs. It showed people that the mind the virus can bleed, therefore making it mortal.
It is sad that a lot of gamers specially streamers were attacked and harassed by playing the game online. It is part of the course though, and we wish the best for those streamers to come out from this stronger than ever.

Cancel culture may try to take down anything that doesn’t conform to their narrow view of the world, but in the end, good quality will always win out!
Capitalism rewards quality, and therefore cancel culture’s attempts to take down anything that doesn’t meet their standards will inevitably fail. Fun gaming experiences like the one presented by Hogwarts Legacy prove that no matter what anyone may think, when a product is of good quality then it will always succeed in spite of its detractors political fangs.
Just because someone holds beliefs which don’t conform to certain views, shouldn’t mean they must be separated from the fun provided by something they created. In this case, it was the legacy left behind by J. K Rowling, which continues despite any cancel attempt. Capitalism will separate those with good quality from those who do not have it, and no amount of push can change that.
It’s no surprise that Hogwarts Legacy has been so successful, despite the best efforts of cancel culture. The game is an immersive and well-made escape from reality that many people need right now. It’s a shame that some people are trying to take that away from others, but in the end, good quality always wins out! Thanks for playing!
