Paul Robeson was a hardcore communist and holder of the Stalin Prize. I still like his singing. Caravaggio was a violent homosexual murderer, but his paintings remain masterpieces. Wagner was an anti-Semite whose music inspired the Nazis - but that music is still sublime.

Bad people make great art all the time. It's a non-issue.
