I get that we all have different interests, but I have the opposite reaction.

My interest in whether he's a decent person compared to him being found guilty of saying something grossly offensive, based on a law that as far as I can tell shouldn't even apply here. Not that I'm an expert on British law, but then the people who wrote the law and the judges who interpret the law have previously disagreed over when the law should apply, so apparently I'm not the only one confused by it. Half a year in jail seems more important to me than the fact that he went on some jackass's talk show.
