The Salvation Army has probably done more to help people in need than someone like a “committed philanthropist” like Ellie Goulding could. Yet, here we have Goulding, a box blond pop star, making a holier-than-thou based demand of the Salvation Army as if she’s the more morally superior of the two.

She was confronted with the mob and their heaviest hammer, “Cancel Culture.”
