Calls to “cancel” Marine vet, Adam Driver spark over the use of racial term in Spike Lee film

Marine veteran-turned actor Adam Driver is “over”…again, thanks to joining the Marines and saying the “n-word” in a Spike Lee movie.

Driver, who served in the USMC but never got to see combat due to an injury, was reportedly “cancelled” in the wake of a tsunami of political correctness.

Despite the calls to cancel him, many have cited that he is hardly “problematic.”

“Y’all Adam Driver is not over he’s a veteran, an actor, and an angel please leave the unproblematics alone #AdamDriverIsOverParty,” one Twitter user said.

Others criticized the outrage for Driver’s use of a racial slur -which is in no way forbidden to say in the United States- at the direction of Spike Lee for his film, BlacKkKlansman.

“Or is Adam Driver over for playing a part written by Spike Lee in which he said the N word…because it was a script…by SPIKE LEE…who clearly wanted him to say it. Either reason is ridiculous. Please move on.”

According to HITC, Driver said in a 2019 interview that he enlisted right after 9/11, but clarified he did not do so in order to be at war “against Muslims.”

“It was,” he said. “We were attacked. I want to fight for my country against whoever that is.” 

In the Spike Lee film, Driver plays an officer who goes undercover, and thus has to use racial slurs to blend into the KKK.
