Christopher Hitchens also famously wrote that it is impossible for women to be funny. A saint he ain’t. I actually have essays here on Medium regarding my views on how to deal with enjoying the art of a flawed person that may be worth checking out. In short: none of us love only unproblematic art by unflawed people, and that is fine so long as we take seriously the responsibility to grapple with the artist’s actions, and do all that we can to avoid filling the pockets of living abusers. Thanks!
