      I mean, Roald Dahl and Walt Disney were both apparently terrible antisemites, but I still enjoy their work a great deal.

      Or to take a more-recently-in-the-news example, Orson Scott Card; I don't want to put any money in the bastidge's pockets, but that doesn't mean I'm going to stop rereading my copy of Ender's Game, because it's still an excellent book.

      I don't think it's a problem if one finds oneself unable to get past the artist to appreciate the art.  I also don't think it's a problem if one doesn't.
