Forget about artists with sexual harassment accusations

Last year, a ridiculous amount of entertainers, artists and powerful executives were accused of sexual harassment by a massive majority of people.

I’m sure I don’t have to remind you of how disgusting and serious of an offense this is, but apparently, some artists need the additional reminder.

Recently, a number of “famous” rappers have been under fire due to accusations of sexual harassment and abuse. In the era of the #MeToo movement, this still should not be such a horrific epidemic.

A list of some of the artists who have been accused of sexual harassment and abuse recently include Chris Brown, XXXTentacion, Kodak Black, Nelly, Lil Pump and 6ix9ine, but the list goes on and on.

How sad is this, though?

These artists have been accused of either sexual harassment or abuse recently, and they are still able to make music and still somehow gain the popularity they have.

I am completely baffled by it all.

Despite my personal opinions on the quality of music some of these artists produce, I am still in absolute confusion as to how these artists still have careers. With such serious accusations building up against them, why are they even allowed to still make music and release it to the public so they can make a profit?

I would like to think maybe some people are just unaware about the accusations surrounding these artists, but it surely does not excuse any of their actions. But with today’s world being so heavily influenced by social media, I am not sure how most of their fan bases would not know of these accusations.

Most teenagers get their news from Twitter. Knowing these artists’ fan bases consist mostly of teenagers, I wonder how they wouldn’t be at least aware of these accusations.

Unfortunately, most of these fans either do not know about these accusations or, the more common alternative, most of their fans will simply choose to ignore the accusations about an artist they really like, which is the worst possible thing they can do.

It is now 2018, people. It is time to forget about these artists who have been accused of such serious offenses.

Forget about their music even if you like it, forget about what they are doing in their life because they no longer are relevant. What’s left of 2018 should be filled with unproblematic entertainers.
