hey? did u know? that an artist is not the same as their art??? like, someone can be a total super dickface and still make meaningful works of merit? personal pleasantness doesn’t actually have anything to do with an individual’s intelligence or talent? so just because i like a thing by so and so doesn’t mean i condone so and so’s behavior.
I mean in cases where you’re worried about buying their work because you don’t want to financially support an asshole that justification might make sense, but that doesnt mean you can’t enjoy or appreciate it. From a literary and artistic standpoint you definitely shouldn’t limit yourself to only immersing yourself in good guy material because unfortunately a lot of the greatest art comes from assholes.
