Subject: It's an individual choice. Garry Glitter, John Phillips, Mark Salling's predilection to pedophilia? Crawford or Crosby's violent child rearing, Polanski's or Allen's or Chaplin's questionable teen sexual indiscretions? Wagner's antisemitism, Sean Connery, Fernando Lamas or Norman Mailer's advocacy of violence in a marriage, etc?

Everyone patron of the arts has a 'breaking point' of acceptence.

In reply to: obitchecker 's message, "Berry's sexual incidents should not be airbrushed out of history. But I will NEVER agree to the attitude that sexual or other severe wrongs call for any person's artistic or musical contributions to be airbrushed out of our history either." on Wednesday, March 07, 09:50:10pm

Personally, if I truly love a piece of art or music or film, I have been known to separate the offender from their art ....most of the time. I love Woody Allen films, Crosby's crooning, even Norman Mailer's works, though convicted for stabbing his own wife. -SO yes, I have been guilty of 'moral amnesty' of dubious artists...depending on the mood of the day.
