Jezebel's Cancel Tournament: Everyone Hates Influencers

Welcome to the next leg of Jezebel’s Cancel Tournament. On Wednesday, we cut down the Lifestyle and Concepts Divisions to determine which obsessed-about trends deserve to be canceled most. Judging by the responses, this was an easy round of voting—those who won the right to be canceled won by a lot. Can’t wait to see which evil things canceled out other evil things?

In Vapes (1) vs. Soulcycle (8), vapes will progress, having scored 61.8 percent of the vote over stationary bikes. The Greatest Show on Earth is Influencers (4) vs. Feelings (5), and yes, it’s still Influencers, which earned 95.8 percent of votes, “winning” by a mile. Keto Dieting (6) has been canceled over Wellness (14), 71 percent to 29 percent. In the race between All YouTubers (7) and Spray Tans (15), vloggers will continue on in the cancel bracket, 59.9 percent to 40.1 percent. I am not shocked. Men (9) have been canceled over Calling People “Human” (16), 59.5 percent to 40.5 percent, as has E M P O W E R M E N T (12) over The Discourse (13), 60.9 percent to 39.1 percent. Brands on Twitter (6) are out of the race, but Celebrity Religious Cults (3) will advance, with 67.7 percent of votes. And in the showdown no one expected: you want Cryptocurrency (15) to be canceled over Robots (7), 85.6 percent to 14.4 percent.

Today, you’re voting the determine which two topics in each division will still be in the running for America’s Top Canceled Thing. For Celebrity and Arts, is it Kanye West (8) or Logan Paul (12)? Reboots (14) or Cable TV (2)? In the Politics division, we have Bret Stephens (16) vs. Ivanka Trump’s Nazi Dog (12), and Meghan McCain (6) vs. The FOX News Blondes (10)?

The Lifestyle faceoff is: Vapes (1) vs. Influencers (4) and Keto Dieting (6) vs. All YouTubers (7)? And for Concepts, will Men (9) overtake E M P O W E R M E N T (12) and how much do you hate Celebrity Religious Cults (3) vs. Cryptocurrency (15)?
