‘Warrior against cancel culture’: John Cleese cancels HIMSELF
Ben Fordham has applauded British actor John Cleese for cancelling himself.
Mr Cleese pulled out of a scheduled talk at Cambridge University over “woke rules” that saw another speaker blacklisted for doing an impersonation of Adolf Hitler.
In a statement, he wrote “I am blacklisting myself before someone else does.’
“Bravo, John Cleese,” Ben said.

I was looking forward to talking to students at the Cambridge Union this Friday, but I hear that someone there has been blacklisted for doing an
impersonation of Hitler
I regret that I did the same on a Monty Python show, so I am blacklisting myself before someone else does
