“Lindsay Ellis” has been a top trending topic on Twitter today.

But why? Who is she and why are so many people interested in her?

Well, she’s a film critic. She also started a left-wing video channel in response to Gamergate. And she’s decided to leave Twitter:

She’s decided to believe because the Outrage Mob has come to cancel her. Apparently over a tweet she has since deleted about Disney’s “Raya and the Last Dragon.”

Here are the tweets that remain:

Unfortunately for Lindsay, those tweets weren’t enough to dig her back into the good graces of the Outrage Mob. Honestly, we’re not really sure what’s so egregiously offensive about Ellis’ original “Raya” tweet, but it doesn’t matter what we think. Forget it, Lindsay. It’s Twittertown. And if the mob comes for you, well, God help you.

Tough break, Lindsay Ellis. Though we can’t say you didn’t have it coming. As Noam Blum, aka @neontaster, discusses out, Ellis’ rude awakening was inevitable:


She certainly seems to be reaping what she’s been sowing.

Like we said, we can’t really figure out why Ellis’ tweet set some people off so hard. But people are offended, and that’s all that matters.

If Lindsay Ellis decided to make her beefs personal, she really can’t be shocked when others return the favor.

Too bad that getting canceled is what it took to show Lindsay Ellis where cancel culture can lead, assuming she actually learned something from this and isn’t completely lacking in self-awareness.

We tried to warn them.
