Default What about Polanski at the rally against sexism?

Yes, but I seriously doubt that feminists would invite him to the rally against sexism.

Yusuf Islam never apologized, but at least he denied to have said what he clearly did say.

Yusuf Islam got a prize for peace and understanding at a huge event hosted by Germany's most popular TV show host Thomas Gottschalk. It was later revealed that Islam demanded to be shielded from women as much as possible and he refused to shake any woman's hand. What an exemplar of "peace and understanding".
