I think it’s up to the specific little person and not up to everyone else. From time to tome you’ll hear about an Irish Restaurant who hires a little person to dress up as a leprechaun or even a Mexican restaurant that hires a little person to walk around with a sombrero with chips and dip in it and some people will get insulted for him and eventually they’ll have to fire him. Even though he was okay with and even enjoyed his job, a small group of people got the media involved and now he has to go out and try to find something else to do.
As for people who think it’s degrading, they should get a life
Hmmm, I thought there was more, I guess I just remember this one so well since it happened nearby and the guy was a radio personality on the station I listened to at the time so when he started feeling the pressure we all heard about it and his response was that they should just leave him be, he didn’t need anyone to stand up for him because he didn’t feel degraded, he liked his job.
If that guy didn’t want to be in an Irish themed lotto ad he shouldn’t have tried out for it, simple as that. Just like strippers who say it’s the only way they can pay for school or bartenders who say the ONLY job they can find is one where they have to spend 50 hours a week inhaling second hand smoke. Maybe it’s where you make the most money, but surely it’s not the ONLY job you can find.
