Alex Kingston has branded cancel culture “fascist”, claiming it has made his generation “tread on eggshells” over what to say.

The Doctor Who actress, 61, shared her fears of being canceled after admitting she is “really confused” about pronouns.

Alex said the idea of ​​cancel culture is “scary” and “dangerous” because there is a lack of empathy or sympathy if you “inadvertently hurt someone” by saying the wrong thing.

She said The Telegraph: ‘Cancel culture is terrifying. Something fascist, actually. I don’t think people realize how dangerous it is to cancel people, what they’ve meant historically.

‘My generation is stepping on eggshells, not knowing if what you say will unintentionally hurt someone. For example, pronouns confuse me a lot.

‘I’m just not sure how and when to use them. There is no empathy or sympathy: opinions are immediate and black and white.’

Like Alex, Frank Skinner, Jimmy Carr and Ricky Gervais have previously been open with their views on cancel culture.

In April, host Frank revealed what he thinks about cancel culture while talking about what it’s like to be a comedian in today’s society.

The broadcaster has enjoyed an impressive 40-year career in comedy, and during an appearance on Loose Women confessed that he doesn’t believe cancel culture has negatively affected the industry.

When asked by panelist Coleen Nolan if he finds it harder to make jokes in the times we live in, he admitted: “The things we’re not supposed to say, I don’t want to say anyway.”

Fellow comedian Ricky has been incredibly vocal in his disapproval of the woke phenomenon, and more recently, Jimmy said he will never apologize for his comedy.

However, Frank took a less frank approach when he joked: “It’s not like I’m sitting there and thinking, ‘Oh, I can’t use my 40 minutes of racist stuff.’ I just want to go out and have people have a good time.”

He continued: “So I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings in the audience, I don’t want to shock anyone.”

Coleen responded: “There are a lot of comics that say it’s not the same, so it’s comforting to hear that.”

Frank added: “Yeah, well, you know, if I’m going to surprise them, it’ll just be the shock of knowing I’m still alive.”

In 2021, Ricky criticized cancel culture and described the “woke” as “a strange kind of fascism” amid calls for the “free exchange of information and ideas.”

He said: ‘There’s this strange new kind of fascism where people think they know what can be said and what can’t be said, and it’s a really strange thing. Just because you’re offended doesn’t mean you’re right.

The Afterlife star previously said on talkRadio: ‘There’s this new fashionable myth that people who want freedom of speech want to say horrible things all the time.

‘It’s just not true, protect everyone. If you’re even slightly left-wing on Twitter, suddenly you’re Trotsky, right?

“If you are slightly conservative, you are Hitler and if you are a centrist and analyze both arguments, you are a coward.” Just because you’re offended doesn’t mean you’re right.

Meanwhile, Jimmy admitted earlier this month that he doesn’t criticize his comedy, arguing that jokes “are like magnets, they attract some people and repel others.”

Appearing on The Development by David Podcast, he said: “I try not to get involved. I try my best to make it absolutely valid that people don’t like some of my jokes.

‘Jokes are like magnets, they attract some people and repel others. Some people are turned off by my sense of humor, don’t like it, and don’t come to the shows or watch the Netflix specials.

“But when the new Netflix releases a clip, it’ll show up online and it’ll show up on someone’s feed and they’ll see it and be like, ‘Ban this crap, this joke is so terrible I have to send it to everyone I know.'” Damn, I do. HE”. But you have to adjust the size of that.’

He recalled: ‘I remember James Corden being very nice the last time I got cancelled. He called me on the phone and said, “What happened? No, I’ll tell you what happened. You told a joke and some people didn’t like it. That’s all. Let’s go to lunch.”
