Are you tired of cancel culture? Do you not even understand it? Well, Jennifer Aniston is right there with you.

The 54-year-old former Friends star admitted as much in a new cover story for Wall Street Journal Magazine this week.

“I’m so over cancel culture,” Aniston said. “I probably just got canceled by saying that. I just don’t understand what it means.… Is there no redemption? I don’t know. I don’t put everybody in the Harvey Weinstein basket.”

Weinstein is currently serving 39 years in prison, 23 years for the crimes he committed in New York plus another 16 years in prison for his crimes in California.

Aniston said she personally didn’t have any run-ins with him, but he still made her feel uncomfortable.

“He’s not a guy, you’re like, ‘God, I can’t wait to hang out with Harvey.’ Never,” she said. “You were actually like, ‘Oh, God, OK, suck it up.’ I remember actually, he came to visit me on a movie to pitch me a movie. And I do remember consciously having a person stay in my trailer.”

Weinstein, on the other hand, claimed Aniston “never had any uncomfortable instances” with him.

Both of their accounts differ wildly from an email dated Oct. 31, 2017 from Weinstein’s spokeswoman Sallie Hofmeister in which the National Enquirer claimed “Jennifer confided to a friend that during the production of the 2005 movie Derailed Weinstein sexually assaulted her by pressing up against her back in [sic] grabbing her buttocks.”

The Enquirer never did publish the allegations.

As for being a victim of cancel culture, Jennifer Aniston has bumped into it more than once and survived unscathed.

In 2020, during the height of the pandemic, Aniston was criticized by many on the internet for showing off her “Our First Pandemic” tree decoration prior to that year’s Christmas.

Then, earlier this month, Aniston was once again the subject of backlash after she appeared to like an Instagram post of Foxx’s that some people said was antisemitic. Her “like” of Foxx’s Instagram post was later removed.

“This really makes me sick,” Aniston later wrote on her her Instagram story, while turning off the comments on all of her posts. “I did not ‘like’ this post on purpose or by accident.

“And more importantly, I want to be clear to my friends and anyone hurt by this showing up in their feed — I do NOT support any type of antisemitism. And I truly don’t tolerate HATE of any kind. Period.”
