The Beatles used pitch shifting on numerous tracks, and they even used the technique to put various parts in tune with other parts. There's nothing 'wrong' with Autotune itself, I hope people realise this.
Well, yeah, I agree, but Britney Spears (for example) can't sing worth anything without autotune.
I think it's totally fine to use for small corrections, but it's really false advertising (in a sense) if you like Britney's recorded songs then find out she makes your ears bleed live. I mean, you're paying money to go see her...
