“I think the important thing is, we get into this mindset of canceling everything or everyone. And that’s not unhealthy because it’s like, ‘OK then …’ Because what you’re saying is every time somebody says something, then it’s just over,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.

Ex-staffers claimed in a Rolling Stone report that the show’s executive producer, Alex Duda, allegedly “shields Clarkson” from “the climate” Duda created.
