Ok, at what point do we stop damning celebrities for things they tweeted in their past, and admit that people can learn and grow, and that accepting and verifying that change in people is far far more important than shaming them for something they once believed. I mean, I look back to High School, where "gay" was an insult, almost universally among people. It's not now obviously because as we learn more about the world our views change, and we realize we were wrong, and learn. Shouldn't we be putting more emphasis on that learning process that everyone has to go through, and less on shaming someone for what they thought 20 years ago before experience changed them?
