I wasn't calling you out for the water bottle post, but more the people who responded only to that part and not to the rest.
And yeah, I think you're telling the truth in this post. In the last few years, I've learned about the truly terrible and dehumanizing practices of one of my favorite Broadway directors, someone I have admired for nearly 30 years, and I'm finding it very hard to reconcile that information with how much I still love his shows. It's tough, and there aren't necessarily easy answers, but a lot of folks don't even want to entertain the conversation, because they just want to enjoy show and not think about it.
(In the same way that I want to enjoy Drag Race and not think about the heinous contract everyone signs to be on the show.)
