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!

Agreeing with VCRshark on this one.

You've already entered into a contract and agreed to the no refund ToS, especially if you've paid them.
The only things you can do at this point are:
1) Count it as a loss and cancel your commission
2) Go forward with it anyway

With #2, talk to the artist and see if you can request not having your name attached to any public posts; just have it listed as "commission for a client".

Not having a name attached is a good idea! If this situation ever actually happens, I'd consider that for larger sums that would be a bummer if I otherwise had to take the loss.
