Willow Smith Says 'Cancel Culture' 'Doesn't Lead to Learning' in Juneteenth Red Table Talk Episode Rowland isn't the first celebrity to speak candidly about cancel culture. In the Juneteenth episode of Red Table Talk, Jada Pinkett Smith, her daughter Willow Smith and her mother Adrienne Banfield Norris discussed their thoughts on the trend. Willow first began by noting that the idea is "so prevalent right now." "I'm seeing people shaming others, like saying really terrible things, shaming people for what they’re choosing to say or shaming people for not really saying anything at all," she said. "But I feel like if we really want change, shaming doesn't lead to learning," the teenager added. Civil rights activist Tamika D. Mallory agreed, adding "cancel culture is a little dangerous. It definitely is because none of us are perfect." "It is a space that is a little difficult to maneuver because you do have to leave people room to make mistakes, to grow and to learn, but they have to show that they're willing," she said.
