There are celebrities who call me names, say I'm stupid, uncaring, seflish, etc.. Those I don't like to support. If the family is going to see one of their films and I want to be with the fam then I very occasionally make an exception. Beyond informing someone of the facts surrounding these celebrities, which is often enough to convince them, I wouldn't think of telling someone which of these celebrities they personally should support with their dollars..
Then there are those celebrities like Polanski. I can say without a doubt that someone who would support and promote this man is doing a disservice to our society. They are supporting a man who without compunction anally and vaginally raped a young woman, and choose not to repent and pay the price he owed society, as would any legitimate member of society. Not only promoting him, but celebrating him and his talent. Yes, he may have talent, but that is so far overshadowed by his crimes that there's no room for any light, any gray, any other real choice than to disown and disavow him as a member of our society. He's been banished from the US. He should be banished in all ways, but apparently there are those who still accept him in their "society."
Yes there is a very very small chance of having something interesting happen while I'm going to Blockbuster, but there was also a greater chance of something interesting happening to us when humans had to walk everywhere, because it took longer and we were closer to nature. I don't choose to walk everywhere and I don't choose to use Blockbuster, thanks just the same, for worrying about me and my chances to have life experiences :)
