Removing songs from radio play due to the behavior of the artists is a bad idea.

Recently there was a Canadian band called Hedley where they stopped playing their songs on the radio due to the lead singer getting arrested for sexual assault. I get the reason they did this was probably to stop him from getting royalties, but I still think they should keep the songs playing.

The first reason I believe this is that, Especially in the case of bands, the other members might still disserve that money and want their songs to keep playing.

Not only that but even if the singers have done bad things, their songs are still good, not only Hedley but there are lots of singers that have done bad things but make good music. For example: lets take Maroon 5. Adam is known for being kind of a cheating, fan hating hypocrite. But I do love most of their songs However while they still do play Maroon 5 songs here and there on most radio stations, you really do not hear it as often as you did back in the day .

Yes I know I can still listen to songs removed from the radio on things like Spotify and YT and all that but to be honest with you, its really not the same.
