I completely agree. Charles Dickens left his wife of 22 years for an 19-year-old, then insulted her in the newspaper. Some of my favorite cartoonists were Nazi collaborators. One of the lead actors of a show I like beat his first three wives. And that's not even getting into all the rock stars who've committed sexual assault or abandoned their girlfriends and children. So many of my favorite creators have done genuinely reprehensible things, I find it impossible to understand the idea of getting upset about something somebody said. If I restricted myself to fiction by people who have never so much as said anything wrong, I'd have to throw out pretty much every book, movie, and album I own.

What cartoonists?

A number of Belgian cartoonists who were alive during WWII, most notably Willy Vandersteen, who drew antisemitic cartoons under the pen name Kaproen. (Although judging by his later work he either changed his mind or never believed the Nazis in the first place.)
