"There are three situations where you might find yourself being “cancelled”. One situation is where someone has committed a crime, usually violent or otherwise serious. This is where cancel culture started life — as a fairly innocent and useful mechanism for exposing those who evaded tax or committed violent crimes while evading the criminal justice system."

I don't consider it an "innocent" thing to assume someone is guilty of a crime, when that accusation has never been properly tested in a court of law and proven beyond reasonable doubt.
