Mainly because of the amount of money they bring in, many people expect celebrities and other prominent figures to have thicker skins than the average Jane or Joe. However -- as evidenced by the numbers of celebrities who've forsaken social media -- fame and fortune are not effective defenses against an all-out assault by faceless trolls. Saturday Night Live cast member Leslie Jones temporarily unplugged her Twitter account after being bombarded by racist and sexist attacks. Girls star Lena Dunham quit Twitter due to abuse.

The problem with celebrities is that they are surrounded by people who put them on a pedestal. When they branch out into the real world they are taken back by anyone who doesn't drink what they are serving. It's this isolation that prevents them from knowing what's really going on. They only wish to receive praise not negative feedback. There are some celebrities that actually live outside their sheltered life of stardom. They volunteer, the contribute to society in the most sincere way. They rest belong to a club of self fulfilling people who only want filtered lives void of anything else.

Agree because I'm fully vaccinated.
Agree if the company institutes a mandatory mask requirement and other safety protocols.
Comply reluctantly, because I can't afford to lose my job, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job I feel is safer.
Resign because I'm not vaccinated and don't want to risk infection to myself or others.
