‘Cancel Culture’ Has No Effect On This Year’s Grammy Nominees

The National Association of Recording Arts and Sciences released the 2022 Grammy nominations Tuesday, and made sure to include nominations for controversial celebrities like Dave Chappelle, Marilyn Manson and Louis C.K.

Chappelle is a nominee in the Best Spoken Word Album category for “8:46,” a piece he did with Amir Sulaiman, while fellow comedian Louis C.K. is up for Best Comedy Album with “Sincerely Louis CK.”

In addition, Kevin Hart ― who lost a chance to host the Oscars because of homophobic comments ― is also nominated for Best Comedy Album for “Zero Fucks Given.”

Meanwhile, Manson’s guest appearance on Kanye West’s “Donda” album led to him getting nominated in the Album of the Year category.

The fact that nominations were given to people who have been supposedly “canceled” did not go unnoticed on some Twitter users.
