Why is it only spoiled, privileged men whine about "cancel culture"?

Colbert: "If cancel culture is real, why is Mel Gibson still working?"

He is, as expected, very thoughtful and insightful. As he notes, what some privileged men complain about is that they can't say whatever they want with impunity. Now, however, there might be consequences. Specifically -- people might be mean on Twitter. Meanwhile: school shootings, trans people murdered, the continued erosion of democracy

Also, I'd like to emphasize Colbert's point that it is not funny or brave to punch down. It is cowardly and pathetic.
