...I really don't want this to be true. Please don't let this be true.

Personally I'm disappointed by the number of Cummings fans (including female) who are shouting it's all lies, his wife is crazy, 'SJW agenda', etc.
Rolf Harris was a beloved entertainer in the UK for decades. Beloved by kids and adults. And then a few years back it emerged he'd committed sexual assault and went to prison for it.
Anyone can be an offender. Even if they're a huge part of your childhood and you think the world of them.

I think in poor taste to say "I hope this isn't true because I don't want my perception of my childhood icon to be changed." Or maybe poor taste isn't the right word, but . . . it's an attitude that encourages a bias. Like, maybe his ex-wife who got restraining orders against him knows him better than a bunch of people who heard him in a cartoon, you know?
I get that emotional punch when you admired someone (especially when you admired them as a child) and then later found out they're awful. I grew up watching The Cosby Show and thinking that Bill Cosby was the same person as his lovable character, Doctor Huxable. But he wasn't.

another reminder that life is an unrepentant hellscape that will eventually destroy everyone & everything you've ever cared about.

These situations are always difficult to respond to. Like, I have no particular feelings toward Jim Cummings as an actor other than him having the most obtrusively out-of-place voice in Skyrim. He happened to voice a few cartoon characters I liked, but, like, that's not really anything to his credit, other than being hired to do so. And I don't personally know anything about his personal life to say that the allegations seem likely or not.
But, like, you don't want to be all like 'I hope he rots' because of the handful of cases where these kinds of allegations turn out to be false, but then, to otherwise dismiss or ignore such serious allegations out of a desire to appear fair or retain a sense of nostalgia is equally wrong.
So, like... I hope the truth is properly responded to?
