On responding to criticism with justification:
1. You will never justify yourself to the satisfaction of your detractors.
2. You already had your say.

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
I suspect the balance between defending oneself against detractors and not being steamrolled by them is a tricky. I’ve solved this problem by remaining a complete unknown (the pay is lousy but the benefits ain’t bad). Yet I often wonder how those with emerging name recognition protect their brand when it comes under fire online. Ignoring it and responding to it seem like equally bad choices.
I support an artist’s right to push back–free speech, etc. It won’t protect your brand, however.
