    Yes. I believe people should separate the art from the artist. You can enjoy a person's music without condoning their behavior.

    No. If an artist is an alleged abuser, I want nothing to do with their work.
  1. 3. Should comedians apologize for old jokes/sketches that don't age well?

    vote votes
    I'll still read the books/watch the movies since I already own them, but I won't buy new Harry Potter stuff or read her future works.
  3.  
    vote votes
    I can't enjoy Harry Potter at all anymore. I don't want to look past who the creator is and what she stands for.

    I never cared about Harry Potter in the first place, TBH.

    I hate it. People can change. Let the past stay in the past.

  1.  
    vote votes
    Yes. I think we go too far in calling things offensive or problematic. Some people just need to have thicker skin.
  2.  
    vote votes
    No. We're just better at calling out bad things when we see them. It's not about being "offended," it's about holding people accountable.
