You say that but Frankie Boyle and Ricky Gervais have both come under heavy criticism in the past,I think your under estimating the power of the whining brigade....

Tom and Jerry has been changed and the subject of controversy for over seven decades Mammy Two Shoes was replaced with a white woman in 1953 after complaints from the NAACP, so 'cancel culture' is nothing new.

Criticising something and banning it are very different Chubby Brown was considered offensive and controversial in the 1990s and still performed in front of sell-out audiences
