Call For Comments: Milkshake Ducks and Problematic Artists | Vox Populorum
From Mav: There's a great thing about living in 2019. Access. We now live in a world where we can interact directly with out favorite artists, celebrities and other creators. We know more about their lives than ever. Sometimes it's great. It also sucks, because we now live in a world where we know more about the lives of our favorite artists, celebrities and other creators than ever. And all too often the things we know about them... aren't good. In fact, all too often the things we learn about them are really really bad. Sometimes they're downright awful. Deplorable even. In the last couple years with the #MeToo movement this has been really obvious... the (quite well deserved) take downs of Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby and Kevin Spacey come to mind, but also an unending list of others. On our Oscars episode, Hannah pointed out that she has a lot of problems with Bohemian Rhapsody that aren't related to the film, but more because of Bryan Singer's association with it. Katya
