Ant and Dec admit ‘we’d have been cancelled’ if social media had existed in early career | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
Saturday Night Takeaway hosts Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, both 47, have lifted the lid on various TV blunders and big-name divas after looking back on over thirty years in showbiz. Despite their immense popularity, the pair have admitted they “would have been cancelled” if social media had existed when they first started out.
Over the years Ant and Dec have met with some big names including Christina Aguilera, Paul McCartney and Jennifer Lopez – to name a few.
But one celebrity encounter that would not have gone down well today and played out very differently was with Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash.
According to Dec, back in the 2000s Slash “dropped a couple of F-bombs live on the kids’ show.”
“We’d have been cancelled 10 times over!” the star admitted.
Outbursts like this typically go viral by spreading across popular social media networks which can lead to a person being “cancelled”.
Cancel culture is a new and popular phenomenon, which many celebrities have been vocal about over the past few years.
Those who are deemed to have acted or spoken in an unacceptable manner are “cancelled” by being ostracized, boycotted or shunned by the public or industry in which they work.
This has recently included the likes of Kevin Spacey, Chrissy Teigen, Kanye West and J.K Rowling.
Ant and Dec started out in the 1990s as teen actors in Grange Hill, before moving on to a mildly successful pop career.
