I am very angry with Harrison Ford. Here is why:
I loved the book Ender’s Game. The author of Ender’s Game, Orson Scott Card, is a big, big douche. I have been considering not going to the movie because I don’t really want to give Card more money to support his homophobic douchery. Harrison Ford is IN THE MOVIE. The movie looks amazing. He is ruining my decision making ability (this is not hard).
This happens to me a lot. I find out about an author, or a musician, or a director, or an artist… and suddenly things I loved are ruined by the people who created them. Do you shun the thing you love because of the person who made it? If you already own the art in question, do you get rid of it, or only boycott future works? What about artists who are dead and gone, and no longer profit from their art – is your conscience clear if you get it now? I’m starting to be tempted to just not find out about authors, because I don’t want to lose anything else I love to reality.
I think I’m going to skip the movie, and this makes me sad.
