Bryan Cranston stands against cancel culture and says that it makes people “harder” and “less understanding.”

“We live in this ‘cancel culture’ of people erring and doing wrong, either on purpose or by accident. And there’s less forgiveness in our world,” he said to the AP. “I think we’re unfortunately in a coarser environment. I think our societies have become harder and less understanding, less tolerant, less forgiving.”

“Where does forgiveness live in our society?” Cranston asked. “Where can we accept someone’s behavior if they are contrite, if they are apologetic, and take responsibility?”

The actor said that people should be “welcomed back in, as opposed to creating more fences. Creating more ‘you’re out, you’re in.’”

“I think we need to take a second look at that, and exhale, and realize that asking forgiveness and receiving forgiveness are not weaknesses but are human strengths.”

“President Trump is not the person who I wanted to be in that office.”

“And I’ve been very open about that. That being said, he is the president. If he fails, the country is in jeopardy. It would be egotistical for anyone to say, ‘I hope he fails.’”

“To that person I would say, f— you. Why would you want that? So you can be right?”

“We’ve got to get away from this idea that our country is political football, and someone with a different opinion is the enemy. Assume they love this country as much as you do, and there’s always room for improvement. How can we make it better?”

“What I now worry about is the sanity of anyone who can still support this deeply troubled man to lead our country,” he tweeted last year.
