The #CancelChristmas hashtag has sparked a wave of confusion on X (formerly Twitter), where it’s currently trending. Contrary to what some may believe, the tag does not signify an actual campaign against the festive holiday. Instead, it refers to a rap battle event organized by Chrome 23 and hosted by Remy Ma.
This event is set to feature a lineup of battles including Jaz The Rapper vs Bigg K, C3 vs Charlie Clips, E Hart vs QB Black Diamond, and Shiest Raw vs Taz.
The event is a Pay-Per-View (PPV), which viewers can purchase to watch live. After the live stream, the battles will also be available as Video-On-Demand (VOD) for those who missed the live event or want to re-watch the performances.
This mix-up has stirred a considerable reaction, with some defending Christmas traditions and others poking fun at the misunderstanding. The misinformation seemed to stem from a narrative pushed by certain groups, leading to a mix of humor and outrage across the platform.
The confusion on Twitter seems to stem from the event’s name, leading some to think there’s a campaign to cancel the Christmas holiday. However, the event is purely entertainment in the form of a rap battle competition and has no connection to any movement against Christmas.
