Artists that have committed criminal and civil offenses are usually deemed unfit for public approval in playing their music because celebrities have huge influence in the society. Such artists are many as history evidences. They include musicians such as the late Michael Jackson who was found guilty of being a pedophile as manifested by evidence.
