The cancel culture has recently been focused on Dr. Seuss books and Pepe Le Pew, but a hot take served up by the Washington Post has spotted something else that needs to change:
NEW: A Washington Post op-ed is calling for the cancellation of the Jeep Cherokee for culturally appropriating the Cherokee Indians
— Breaking911 (@Breaking911) March 8, 2021
Opinion: The Jeep Cherokee is not a tribute to Indians. Change the name. https://t.co/RInFlEZffi

Another day brings with it something else that needs canceling (and it took three people to write that one).
Oh for Gods sake – stop it already!

Narrator: But they had no intention of stopping.
The Washington Post is insulting to Washington. Change the name.

And it shows no sign of letting up. However, maybe the WaPo’s tweet should also be canceled:
Opinion: calling Cherokees, "Indians" is not a tribute to Native Americans. Stop calling them that.

If the Jeep Cherokee is offensive to the Cherokee Nation, don't you think the term "Indians" might be as well?
