I too struggle with right-wing thoughts justifying and rewarding the behaviors of horrible people in order to make me amused for a few seconds. Help me philosophers!

edit: maybe we can also discuss how we prefer not to think of child slaves in diamond mines when proposing to each other in Disney World

You remember that time in high school when a group of guys do some horrible shit, but it’s really one charismatic guy raised by a narcissistic cycle of abuse seeking attention and a bunch of kids wanting to be liked by them?

Better throw out all your electronics. You wouldn't want to justify slave labor just so you can post on reddit to amuse yourself for 7 seconds.

You can hate the capitalism that forces you to have a phone in this day and age.

I didn't agree with the article, but aside from the example mentioned of johnny Depp, it wasn't referring to anyone in particular.

I don't see how you can make your first assertion and then go on to making your last assertion. The error in the last proves the first.

I didn't express myself well. What I meant to say was that the article is meant to be about the concept of seperating the art from the artist. So while johnny Depp is mentioned, it's not JUST about him or JUST about Kanye west or whatever. This is quite a common phenomenon now I mean I can think of like 3-4 people off the top of my head that have done absolutely horrible things, but they have a corpus of respected work still, and I'm terrible with celebrities and famous names and such.
