To me, anything a person produces is the embodiment of their character. If s/he has willfully and repeatedly commits acts (including statements) that are deeply injurious to others, then I cannot in good conscience support their work.

I used to love Ted Nugent's music, but as he became increasingly strident and offensive, I simply could no longer justify differentiating between the artist and the person.
