I'm a bit obsessed with Mr Peanutbutter from BoJack Horseman, because I can relate to him in a lot of ways. I can talk a lot about him, but I realise that I'm essentially just talking about myself. So it occurs to me that, for me, being obsessed with fictional characters or people who I relate to is just me obsessing with myself by proxy.
He lived in New England then was overwhelmed by the massive influx of immigrants, new ideas, technology and horrors of war. It's easy to see how it can influence someone. If you write off an artist for their personal beliefs, you're a fool. If you can learn from someone or their work without realigning your own beliefs, then you're a mature person. If you're limiting yourself to new ideas because you don't agree with them 100%, then that's a shame
