it's so easy
to be angry at Famous People
(justified or not)
for perceived sins of the past
and display purifying scorn
in public forums
via viral articles/blog posts
with no need
for nuance or perspective
or historical context
pre-empting opposite viewpoints
and making absolutely sure
actual or imagined crimes
and dubious, outdated, chauvinistic remarks
will cause every second of their art
and/or entertainment
created in the imperfect past
to be avoided like Video Plague
by future generations
and imprisoned in studio vaults
with no likelihood of escape
(except perhaps for YouTube)
