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.
