Celebrities are TRASHING Kanye West's outburst during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. Serena Williams caught a lot of bad press for her outburst during the U.S. Open, and the U.S. House of Representatives is considering a vote on whether it disapproves of Rep. Joe Wilson's outburst during President Obama's health care speech.
When you're a public figure and you speak out against something, cameras are rolling, millions of eyes are watching, and your career can be affected - sometimes positively, often negatively. It's similar to what you face in school if you speak out, whether it's in a class, at a game, at a classmate or at a teacher.
Is there a time when you think speaking out is appropriate, or is it better to hold your tongue? When and how is speaking out acceptable? When isn't it?
