artist-refs

gabbiness:

I see it on social media all the time. Someone posts art that they did not create, and below the illustration write; "credit to the owner", or makes an amv containing art, with no links or names to the original artists.

This is a really shitty thing to do and let me tell you…

I just wish people would stop defending the Beatles' shitty behavior.

ughsocialjustice answered:

They were all pretty shitty at one point or another, being human beings and all that. I love them and I have literally cried over the fact that I could never travel back in time to see just one of their gigs, but if anybody says they were saints that somebody is clearly ignorant and immature.

Honestly, I’d bet anyone to find any pop/rock star that didn’t do something shitty at one point or another, and calling shit out is good, but it doesn’t mean that just because they did something shitty then you can’t love their work. That’s how I feel about it anyway. Putting people on pedestals is the stupidest thing you can do as a fan.
