Haha, at least someone get's the Bronson reference.

Yes, I agree, anyone is free not to consume art from artists they don't like. The reason why someone doesn't like an artist can range from absurd reasons to reasons that can have somewhat justifiable explanations.

But you haven't addressed the point of the extent to which you should be free to make that choice. Amazon have deliberately held back a completed work of art for reasons/excuses of a pre-assumption that "people" don't like the person they made a deal with, a person they knew all the details of before they made that deal. Are you happy with either private or public institutions deciding what you can and cannot choose from? Assuming no specifically exceptional laws have been broken in the actual content of the art, obviously.
