During a recent appearance on SirixusXM’s “Just Jenny”, when asked by host Jenny Hutt for her thoughts on the current social climate, in which people are “afraid to have real conversations,” Stone asserted, “I think cancel culture is the stupidest thing I have ever seen happen.”
“I think when people say things that they feel and mean, and it’s offensive to you, it’s a brilliant opportunity for everyone to learn and grow and understand each other,” she argued.

Stone also reasoned that since “we all come from different ages, different cultures, different backgrounds, different things, and have had different experiences, different traumas, different upbringings, different parents, different religious backgrounds, different everything”, people should give others “an opportunity to discuss things before you wipe out their entire person over a statement or a comment or a misunderstanding.”
“Stop being so small,” she concluded. “People have done so much more than one sentence.”
