I myself has often objected to "canceling," as for example in the cases of Dr. Seuss and J.K. Rowling. But it depends on the context, and also, I think that word is very amorphous.

In this case, if canceling the person in question means embarrassing him to the point where he will never again be able to work in an office environment with other people, thereby preventing him from terrorizing his staff on a regular basis and sometimes physically attacking them by, for example, smashing a computer monitor on someone's hand, thus injuring them so severely that they require immediate medical attention......well, maybe that kind of "cancellation" is not such a bad thing.
