How to cancel/not execute Bitbucket Pipelines builds based on a condition?

Pseudo code example of yml file (ignore syntax, I'm just showcasing what I'm trying to do)

user = git show -s --format='%ae' $BITBUCKET_COMMIT
unwantedUser = ""

'**' && user != unwantedUser:
- step:


What would be the actual syntax to achieve that?

Thanks for taking a moment to answer your own question!
