It's not that we view famous people through rose-tinted glasses -- quite the opposite in fact. It's just that we expect them to do terrible stuff, so then we just kind of forget about it. But it turns out that the shit we forget was overshadowing some other shit that they did that was equally, if not more, awful than the shit we forgot they did.
