    If someone does something very bad, but they are a fantastic performer, can you both admire them and destest them?



    Quote:
    Harvey Weinstein - ugly inside and out, somehow it's easier to see a bloated mess and know he is a scumbag, it seems right.



    Quote:
    Beniot on the other hand was an amazing performer, his matches with Kurt Angle were spectacular. What he did to his family was beyond despicable.



    Quote:
    Whilst Spacey is not on my all time favourite list, I respect his body of work, the Usual Suspects, American Beauty etc.


To quote Gordon from V for Vendetta on why he keeps a Quran - "I don't have to be Muslim to find the images beautiful or the poetry moving."

I think in a sense, this applies here. A person can be admired for the ingenuity they apply to their craft--or indeed, the craft itself can admired, depending on what it is--without an association to his or her other deeds.
