    Gen Y Speaks "Woke Culture" Article Reactions (ft. Chow Jia Hui) | IMO Ep.49

    CLARIFICATION: The quote at 9:49 was wrong, the actual line used in the article was "But I can’t even admit that I’d like to know!" Sorry for the mistake.

    Here at IMO, the topic of cancel culture and "woke culture" is one that we have not been shy to talk about, doing many episodes on it last year. Recently, the topic was brought up again by a controversial article by Today, which received backlash from netizens in Singapore. Watch as we talk about our reactions to the article, and reflect upon the role of media in society.
