Interesting. Since the advent of television, arguably since the advent of acting, those who made creative content often got passes for bad behavior if their creations were lucrative or popular enough.  It looks like we may be seeing that sunset.  I'm curious for how long this will last.

About a year and a half ago, Lindsay Ellis, probably best known for her Nostalgia Chick persona, did a presentation on an idea known as Death of the Author.  It wasn't referring to the actual demise, but on the concept that the work could somehow be interpreted entirely independently of the person that created it.

The crux of the argument, and its followup just this week, she argued that it's not really possible to do this, especially when the creator is not actually dead.

He's expendable if he's showrunning reboots. Too bad, schmuck

TWX:

It's impossible to read brief interviews with hideous men without thinking DFW is attempting to justify his behaviour.

There's a line from Bob's burgers that I think is appropriate.

Make sure all your hero's are old so they'll be dead when you're an adult
