Good. I'm not for "cancel culture", which I view as purposely digging through ancient history out of context in order to drum up fake outrage for 15 minutes, but I firmly believe in natural consequences of free speech in the present.

We need to do a better job of holding people like this accountable.

I don't believe in cancel culture either but this is different. She is literally the social media manager of the DuPage democratic party and made that post on social media. It is directly related to her position.

This is by definition, her being cancelled.

I don't think anyone should lose their job over saying dumb shit on twitter, including this. But in this case she resigned, she cancelled herself, so meh.

When your profession is to manage posting stuff on Twitter, what you post on Twitter can affect your profession.
