Leftest Twitter Tries To Cancel Marine Vet, Adam Driver
The cancel culture is stirring about once again, this time against Adam Driver who may be most well-known for his role of Kylo Ren in the movie Star Wars.
On Monday, the hashtag #AdamDriverIsOverParty started trending on Twitter which just goes to demonstrate how the cancel culture is trying to murder another career.
This all started in a response to an interview from last year with the New Yorker in which Driver discussed joining the Marines after 9/11. He explained that he had a desire for retribution against those who carried out the attacks.
“After 9/11, he found himself filled with a desire for retribution, although he wasn’t sure against what or whom. ‘It wasn’t against Muslims,’ [Driver] said. ‘It was: We were attacked. I want to fight for my country against whoever that is.'”
Well, just that alone was enough to set off the cancel culture and call for his career to be “canceled”.
Notably, at the time of this writing, nearly all tweets using the hashtag are from fans coming to Driver’s defense. “Why is this a thing. He’s probably one of the least controversial people out there,” one tweet using the hashtag read. Producer and novelist Kamran Pasha (Kings, Bionic Woman) tweeted, “Adam Driver is one of the finest actors of our generation, and a decent and honorable man by all accounts. As a Muslim filmmaker working in Hollywood, he has my full support. With everything happening in the world, today is not the day for an #AdamDriverIsOverParty.”
Driver was medically discharged from the Marines and later enrolled in The Julliard School. Fans defending Driver have pointed out that he starred in the 2019 film The Report, which is about the real-life investigation into the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program established in the wake of 9/11. A few also praised Driver for founding the non-profit Arts in the Armed Forces, which helps veterans find careers in the performing arts.
