THE ETHICS OF REPORTING ON INCELS

Six key strategies for effective and responsible journalism
When the highly anticipated Joker movie premièred last fall, some film critics and journalists seized upon the moment to invoke the apparent thematic connection to incels – an internet community established more than two decades ago as a “lonely-hearts” style forum that has morphed into an online movement linked to instances of real-world violence.
In asking questions such as, “Is the Joker backlash mere moral panic, or does the movie actually sympathize with incel culture?” (Rolling Stone), journalists speculated on how the film would be received by incels in the month before its Oct. 4 United States release. Film critics called the movie a “toxic rallying cry for self-pitying incels” (Indiewire), and coolly asserted that the Joker, played by Joaquin Phoenix, “could easily be adopted as the patron saint of incels” (Time).
All of this was news to people in incel forums.
