A registered behavioral health technician for Centria Healthcare in Saginaw, Michigan was fired Thursday after Internet sleuths "canceled" him for making disparaging remarks about Breonna Taylor.

Benjamin Holthaus is the latest casualty of social media's "cancel culture.” Internet sleuths tracked him down and doxxed him after he wrote an offensive post saying Taylor was not an emergency medical technician and accused her of being "deep in the drug game".

Taylor was shot multiple times in her bed by three plainclothes officers who executed a no-knock warrant at her home in the early morning hours. They were searching for a drug suspect who was already in police custody.

One of the officers was fired but the other two are still on active duty.

Instagram blogger @GossipoftheCity doxxed Holthaus (published his employee's name and phone number) and urged her followers to contact his employer, Centria Autism, who confirmed Holthuas was no longer employed there on Thursday.

"Thank you for sharing this information with us as that type of behavior does not align with our mission or values.

We were informed of this post last week and we have confirmed with our HR Department that this individual is not a current employee. We have requested removal of their association with our organization on social media through each platform."

The woman who was widely criticized for calling 911 on a Black man in Central Park was charged with a hate crime and filing a false police report.

But the Manhattan district attorney will have a hard time making the charges stick. The victim, Christian Cooper, is not cooperating with the prosecution's case against Amy Cooper.

Christian previously condemned the "cancel culture" that destroyed Amy Cooper's life after his video of the incident went viral in May.

Amy lost her high-paying job and was publicly shamed for claiming an "African American man" was threatening her in the park.

Christian defended Amy again on Tuesday in a statement explaining why he won't cooperate.

"On the one hand, she's already paid a steep price. That's not enough of a deterrent to others? Bringing her more misery just seems like piling on... So if the DA feels the need to pursue charges, he should pursue charges. But he can do that without me."

Christian's decision not to cooperate drew disbelief, anger and indignation on Twitter.

"Looks like dude don't want to mess up his relationships with other white people......Zaddy must have got in his ear," Twitter activist Tariq Nasheed tweeted.

Others expressed their bitter disappointment in Christian Cooper.

Tip "T.I." Harris is no fan of conservative commentator Candace Owens. He says Owens is a lost cause, due to her endless criticism of George Floyd, the Black man who died when a white police officer knelt on his neck for nearly 9 minutes.

During an appearance on Nick Cannon's Power 106 radio show, T.I. called on Black Twitter to cancel Owens, according to EURweb.com.

"We can have an intelligent discussion. You can either change my mind. I can change your mind. But we still moved forward," he continued. "I don't think dropping each other off is the answer all the time."

But when it comes to Owens, T.I. said she's a lost cause.

"Candace Owens. She got to go. She can't come," he said, before suggesting she's a "paid plant" whose goal is to "come out here and speak against everything the majority of us are standing for."

"So white people are always right? You telling me law enforcement is always right? You telling me the United States of America has always been right when it comes to dealing with us? And that's her story. And you can't trust that story because we have facts that tell us otherwise ... She seems to have forgotten that she's black. She has turned in her black card and crossed over."

T.I. and Owens butted heads during the 2019 REVOLT TV summit in Atlanta, where the rapper called Owens "dangerous" and claimed she was "being used for propaganda."

Christian Cooper is not down with the "cancel culture" that destroys the lives of people they disagree with.

Christian asked a white woman to leash her dog in Central Park, but the woman, named Amy Cooper (no relation), called 911 to complain that she felt "threatened" by a Black man.

"I'm going to tell them there's an African-American man threatening my life," she said to him while dialing.

Christian filmed her meltdown on his cellphone, and when the video went viral, her life was "canceled" by social media users. She lost her job and the animal shelter took back her dog.

Now Christian says social media went too far.

"It's a little bit of a frenzy, and I am uncomfortable with that. If our goal is to change the underlying factors, I am not sure that this young woman having her life completely torn apart serves that goal," he told the NY Times.

Others called for an end to the cancel culture phenomenon fueled by social media which doesn't believe in second chances.

Comedian Kevin Hart spoke out about cancel culture, saying "Nobody's going to be perfect."

"Life isn't over because people say it is, and that's what's been happening as of late," Kevin told Oprah on Instagram Live.

"It's like people determine when your end button is pushed, but that's not how it works. We need to lose that attitude and feeling and let people grow. People love to talk shit... people love to be negative, but guess what? They also love to be positive. But we only talk about the negative."

Black Twitter's cancel culture upended Doja Cat's career overnight. The 24-year-old L.A. native saw her career evaporate into thin air after video leaked that showed her chatting with white supremacists.

In the video, the biracial singer is seen flirting with the white men in an alt-right chat room. At one point she blurts out "ni**er" while the men laugh. Doja, whose mother is Jewish-American, seemed comfortable using racial slurs.

After the clip began making the rounds online, fans also dug up one of her songs, believed to be from 2015, entitled "Dindu Nuffin" - which is known to be a racial slur for Black criminals, who claim to be innocent after facing police brutality.

She sings on the track: "How much nothing can a dindu do / If a dindu, dindu nothin' / How much money could a dindu make / If a dindu did all the things that you wish to."

Some believe that the song was targeted at Sandra Bland, a Black woman who died in police custody in 2015.

Doja responded to the backlash late Sunday night. Some say her explanation is too little, too late.

Question: Do you forgive Doja, or is she still canceled?

Accusations of her alleged history of racism have resulted in the hashtag #DojaIsOverParty, which quickly started trending on Twitter.

In a recent interview, Doja Cat said she has never met her father, Dumisani Dlamini, a South African actor, choreographer and film producer, best known for Sarafina!
