Cancel Storm

Used to describe the sudden whipping up of controversy and associated demands for a person or entity to be cancelled due to offence apparently caused by said partly. Such a storm of controversy can drive a news cycle and be energised by social media platforms (particularly Twitter and Facebook). A pre-modern era example of a cancel storm was for New Coke to be abandoned in 1985 (which it was, with the previous version of Coke, brought back by the Coca-Cola Company within three months, following sustained consumer pressure for this outcome).

See Divisionary for more modern definitions.
