Advice: Artist with Conflicting Morals

I need some advice, so I'll use a hypothetical.

Say you've put a down payment on a commission that the artist has deemed it nonrefundable. At this time the commission has not been started, no supplies purchased.

The artists now after being paid starts openly supporting something you're VERY against using social media. You no longer want to support the artist or be associated with them.

Is it fair that given the situation, you ask for the deposit back and cancel the commission?

EDIT: Just want to clarify, this IS NOT HAPPENING. I just felt like in this current climate it would be good to know!

I think it would not be. You presumably entered into a contract with this artist and the deposit is nonrefundable. If you agreed to the artist's TOS (presumably you have since the artist agreed to begin business with you) that included the acknowledgement that if you needed to cancel for whatever reason, you would not get the deposit back. At this point you'd only be in your rights to cancel the slot, but you would not get the deposit back.

That makes perfect sense. I think the best course of action would be to go through with it if it's a large sum. If it's a small amount, I'd explain my reason to the artist politely and call it a loss.
