Subj: Is It Possible To Separate The Art From The Artist?
Posted: Sat Dec 02, 2017 at 01:39:04 pm CST (Viewed 228 times)

I'm just wondering, with all of these sexual harassment allegations (Which I don't entirely believe.) coming out against musicians, entertainers, actors, etc, is it possible to enjoy their work after these alleged accusations? I would say that it is possible, but sometimes difficult. I think of Mel Gibson, for example. People thought that he was finished after his anti-Semitic rant was publicized, but he did make a comeback (Although it did take a few years.). And Hacksaw Ridge was a big hit. I'm sure that there are still some people out there who won't see anything else that he does or appears is, but I think that in his case, it certainly is possible. I also think that sometimes controversy like this causes an increase in sales and the like. I would say that Kevin Spacey (If everything turns out to be true.) and Louis C.K are tougher to overlook. I certainly don't think that shows, movies, etc should be canceled just because of some allegations. After all, OTHER people worked on those shows and films as well. And a HECK of a lot of musicians have had legal problems, but their music still sells. So yes, I think that might be what we need to start doing.
