On Monday, Paramount’s CEO, Bob Bakish, ripped cancel culture and censorship of content that may offend current audiences.

Fox News reports:


Bakish made the comments as the Paramount+ streaming service launched overseas and he discussed the company’s large and historical catalog.

“By definition, you have some things that were made in a different time and reflect different sensibilities,” Bakish explained, according to a June 20 piece by The Guardian.

He went on, “I don’t believe in censoring art that was made historically, that’s probably a mistake. It’s all on demand – you don’t have to watch anything you don’t want to.”

Paramount has recently seen that there is big money in appealing to American nostalgia, as “Top Gun: Maverick,” a sequel to Paramount Pictures’ “Top Gun” (also starring Tom Cruise) in 1986, smashes box office records.
