who we cancelling today BOYSS?

No one because the objective is the one paying. Interesting that they are lacking sharp hashtags to drive their point home.

It's indeed disgusting but believe me, it's impossible to boycott the truly awful companies/people. If anything this would work as an anti cancelling argument in the future.
