Is on the Gin

No because in James Rolfe's case it's more evidence for later or stuff to make companies etc looking into him think twice about agreeing to deals etc. It's not cancelling him now but it's being saved up until he's deemed to have slipped up worse and gone against the orthodoxy too strongly then it will be wheeled out again as supporting evidence for the case against him.Far more than just a "random Twitter user," let's be honest. Even if one pissant went after Jones, add in a hundred or a thousand, and that's a lot of pissants pissing and biting.
In contrast, I never saw any attempt to actually deplatform Rolfe, or make any concious attempt to ruin his career.
I said earlier in the thread that I'm not particuarly interested in ranking who has it worse, but Rolfe, at best, had to deal with nonsense articles. Jones had to deal with a Twitterstorm that was part of a larger Twitterstorm, that was part of a larger culture war spat because the Ghostbusters no longer had dicks. Rolfe got drawn into the storm as well, but, well, Jones got hit with more of the debris, so to speak.
With most high profile twitter users likely including Leslie Jones content filter will auto filter out a lot of the trolls and bullshit and "non trusted" account on the platform from them even seeing or hearing from them.
