Cancelled People Whose Work You Still Enjoy

Jeffrey Tambor's work on Larry Sanders has helped me get through the lockdown. Constant perfection.

"Off The Wall" by Michael Jackson is still a very fine album.

Others?

It is but I do feel a bit uneasy listening to it. Was he a nonce by that point? or a proto nonce? Larkin's poems are good and I still enjoy reading the odd one every now and again.

Is Tambor full cancelled? I know he got outed as being an arsehole to Jessica Walter and something to do with harassing an employee which sort of fell apart maybe? just as Death of Stalin was coming out but nothing since.

There's a bit in the latest Gilbert Gottfried podcast where he tries to ramrod a teary apologia midway through Gilbert Gottfried jokingly calling him a cunt.  It was the first time he'd spoken about it publicly since it all went down.  He seems like the weirdest, neediest, most painfully self-conscious guy on the planet- but he's still funny enough that I hope he doesn't completely drop off the face of the earth like some other Cancelleds.

Ted Hughes has some absolute bangers.

Kevin Spacey was ace in series 1 and 2 of House of Cards.

Some of the most hilarious works I’ve ever seen are still Beatrice and Eugenie.

Reminds me of an early CaB thread called "Hitler's Lovely Horse" about this sort of thing.  It really was quite a good painting.

Erm, well most of the IT Crowd is still enjoyable to me
Except for the laugh at disabled people one
And the laugh and trans people one
But other than that!

I think if the past 10+ years have taught us anything it’s that if you can’t divorce an artist’s work from their personAlito then you’re doomed to never enjoy any art, and likewise that it’s risky business to infer anything about someone’s personality from their art.

It’s best to treat it as a pleasant surprise if someone whose work you enjoy also proves to be a good egg. Kurt Cobain is a good example of this for me - I idolised him in my early teens based on nothing more than the music, but at some point Nirvana stopped being my favourite band and the spate of 70s peodo reveals made me think “good music, probable cunt” whenever I thought back to those teenage years, so it was a nice surprise to me a few years later to learn about how liberal he seemed to be in terms of feminism, gay rights and racism. I haven’t swung back to idolising him but it’s nice to know that someone whose music I do still enjoy a lot might on the balance of probabilities have been a decent chap.

What am I even saying.

All of them, to be honest. Just listened to some Bill Cosby stand-up the other day.

I've tried a bit of Collins-based whistleblowing in the past to no avail, so I've probably jumped in feet first this time.   Memo to self:  More subtlety needed, Buster.

Polanski, even though he hasn’t really been properly cancelled. I can’t not love Rosemary’s Baby and Chinatown.

it's MJ for me. had this debate with my mum and sisters. nothing but absolute bangers. really, truly, love his music. he's the king of pop.

but then it's like well....he is probably a nonce isn't he? deep down I think he's probably a nonce. his music is still incredibly good imo. i know i still enjoy it. but it's wrong, isn't it?
