Well, if you're so keen to have such a person associated with the
project and take the benefits of whatever they bring, then you also
have to take the downside of these things, like this, I think.  Or you
can do something about it and try to get someone to have a quiet word
about the bad publicity they are bringing on the entire project.

Fact is, no matter what good you do, it can be outweighed by the bad
far more quickly.
