Cancel culture has now become a crucial part of our society. Ever since hashtags became a tool to raise awareness about different issues, it seems as if we've now manipulated them in order to tear people down. From minute details to actual questionable behavior, celebrities have been thrown under a microscope for our judging pleasure.
The latest victim of cancel culture is none other than new-girl-on-the-block, Dua Lipa. After her appearance at the Grammy's, she decided to celebrate the night's victories at a strip club with her famous friends. But the reason why she's getting canceled may be darker than what we thought...
Keep reading to discover the real reason behind it.
For those of you that don't know, this is Dua Lipa.
Born and raised in London, this female artist quickly found her feet in the industry.
And within the next few months, she was picked up by Lana Del Rey's management.
Lipa then went on to release her debut single New Love...
However, it was her single Hotter Than Hell which really secured her place in the industry.
It got better for her the following year as she broke British records...
But her most famous song has to be One Kiss.
And in 2019, her efforts in the music industry were rewarded with her first Grammy wins.
Fast forward one year and Dua Lipa made the headlines at the Grammys again, but for completely different reasons.
True to her 90's glam vibe, she had her hair pulled back with a parted fringe hanging loose...
However, the aftermath of the event was what really got people talking.
An insider told Page Six this:
A video emerged of Sunday night's events...
via: TwitterThe thirteen-second clip showed Lipa with a stripper, who has bent over and is shaking her butt against the artist while she tucks loose dollars into her undergarments.
People around her are cheering as she continues to "make it rain."
via: TwitterAs this video went viral online, it seems as though Twitter users weren't happy with her behavior. Within a matter of hours, the hashtag #DuaLipaIsOverParty started trending on the social media platform.
One user commented this:
via: Twitter"What a good example dua lipa, lizzo, rosalia sexualizing women and then later they announce they're feminists."
And that's all it took for a war on feminist ideologies to break out.
But surely that goes against the values of feminism?
But "feminism" isn't about burning bras and hating men...
However, another theory about the growth of the hashtag blew everything out of the water.

Many took to the platform to condemn Korean Pop fans.One user wrote this: "Don't mind this hashtag just a bunch of wh*ck kpop stans all over." And another claimed: "These 'over party' hashtags are just excuses to post more kpop vids."
Despite all this backlash, Dua Lipa's fans had her back.
