Sky News host Rita Panahi says people should be able to “divorce” the political beliefs of a musician from the work they create.

This comes after Guardian Australia journalist Brigid Delaney posted a tweet about problematic music choices.

Ms Panahi said, “if you’re conservative then you would basically cancel 80-90 per cent of musicians and actors and every other celebrity spouting the most ridiculous lunatic fringe opinions from a leftist perspective”.

“But you don’t do that because you are a normal, sane person who can divorce someone’s political beliefs from their talent and you can enjoy a piece of work without agreeing with the artists’ opinions on climate change.”
