Some Are Trying To Cancel Domino’s Pizza For A Tweet From 8 Years Ago

If you’re unfamiliar with the way things have been going lately, you probably have been living under a rock. Cancel culture is a thing that started by calling people out for takes on subjects that are deemed offensive and at first, an apology for past (or current) wrongdoings would likely be enough to be granted forgiveness. It was basically “callout culture”. Now, cancel culture has evolved into something much more than that, with people going back through years and years of social media posts to find mistakes or bad (sometimes awful) takes that someone may have made, and calling them out – with the sole intention of having them fired. This time, Domino’s Pizza is at the center of the “controversy”.

It all started here:

This was apparently dug up by author Rick Wilson:

And Domino’s actually responded by saying:

Welp. It’s unfortunate that thanking a customer for a compliment back in 2012 would be viewed as political. Guess that’s 2020 for ya.

Kayleigh McEnany (the current United States Press Secretary) actually responded to the set of tweets as well.

It appears that the majority of the comment section is on the side of Domino’s Pizza here, but there are definitely more than a few people who are calling for the company to be cancelled.

So there you have it. Personally, I think it’s fair to say that they were just replying to a tweet to a customer – with no malicious or politically motivated intent. Whether or not Domino’s Pizza will be cancelled for replying to a compliment back in 2012 remains to be seen – but we’ll be sure to update you on the situation if it actually happens – but based on some of the replies, it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.
