Problematic People

A list of famous and influential people who I do not wish to support because they have demonstrated that they hold views that I find objectionable, presented here because there seem to be so many more recently and I needed to write them down to remember them all.

It's probably worth pointing out that this is not an exhaustive list, nor is everyone on it equally objectionale; just objectionable enough...

The links are to an example of the problem; not necesarily the best one, but the one I found at the time.
