Artists and Their Demons

Separate the art from the artist. We’ve all heard that phrase before. Whether it’s a sexual scandal that an actor, musician, comedian, or director has committed, or a racist tirade an author or actor went on, those we look up to tend to let us down.

It’s true that everyone makes mistakes, but some make worse mistakes than others. Nonetheless, no one is without blemish.

Sexism and misogyny is a common problem in the arts, causing those to balk in shock in the ‘Metoo’ movement.
