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!

Ahh yes, the classic quandary.
Honestly, I just avoid this situation altogether by not worrying too much about what my clients believe. I am here to do business, not to be an activist or a moral busybody.

RE: Ahh yes, the classic quandary.
If you choose to operate differently, that's fine, but not wanting to support a neo-nazi convicted of child abuse shouldn't be compared to a little old lady have a gossip with her friends (a busybody, as you put it). This is a serious issue that sooner or later, many businesses will have to face, and should be taken seriously.
