In the past couple of days, both the renowned world leader and Obama have dismissed “woke” culture. First, former President Obama said during an interview at the Obama Foundation Summit, “There is this sense sometimes of: ‘The way of me making change is to be as judgmental as possible about other people and that’s enough.’”

He added, “Like, if I tweet or hashtag about how you didn’t do something right or used the wrong verb, then I can sit back and feel pretty good about myself, ’cause, ‘Man, you see how woke I was, I called you out.’ That’s not activism.”

Meanwhile, Charli XCX responded to online articles about a running practical joke in which fans bring her bizarre things — including a douche and human ashes — for her to sign, calling the reports “2019 fake wokeness.” 

She said, “It’s all wrapped up in this brand of ‘2019 fake wokeness’ that I cannot stand: It does more harm than good and just encourages people to attack and harass one another online.”
