How do you determine if you are going to boycott art by problematic people?

Can bad people create good art? What are some examples?

What about people who have only been accused and haven't been proven to be guilty? What about something that happened 20, 50 years ago?

How do you account for artist's thoughts that were probably very commonplace at the time, but that we now see as wrong?

Is it easier to separate the artist when they are behind the scenes — for example, writing a novel or composing a symphony — than when we actually see them on stage?

Let's talk about it!
