Why I Won''t Wear A Face Mask By Deidre Hall

I believe that televised awards shows are not a forum for public health awareness. However, I have not objected when fellow performers have worn face mask to advocate their support for wearing a face mask; that's their choice. My choice is NOT to wear a face mask.

Soap Opera Digest readers should know wearing a face mask is no longer entirely voluntary. Those who began by offering face masks to performers now resort to extreme tactics in pursuit of their express goal of 100 percent conformity. When performers arrive at an award show, individuals who attempt to pin face masks on them accost them. A performer who declines may be accosted at the pre-show reception, again while waiting backstage and again at the press conference after the show.

Offering these face masks to celebrities was, in my view, a benign and pro-social act. On the other hand, aggressively badgering performers to compel the wearing of face masks is no only demeaning to Covid19 victims and to the desperate need for an all-out research war against the disease, but an offense against personal freedom.

By attempting to force 100 percent conformity, these activists are no attempting to make the face mask a visible litmus test for separating those individuals who empathize with COVID19 victims and support COVID19 research from those who do not. This is a misguided and dangerous notion.

First, it misguidedly politicizes human tragedy. These face masks provide a means by which public figures can appear to make a 'politically correct' statement in favor of a cause they do not support.

Second, any attempt to force conformity to a single social agenda attacks the freedom of expression. The extreme activities that resort to harassment to compel actors and actresses to wear these face masks are practicing a '90s brand of McCarthyism and their behavior is deplorable. Our community was devastated by political extremists in the 1950s and again became a target during the last presidential campaign. It surpasses belief that men and women in the entertainment field would resort to shameful practices that the enemies of artistic freedom have used against us.

Sadly, it falls to some of us who ardently support COVID19 victims and COVID19 research to resist these tactics by personal example. Believe me, the easy way out would be to pin the face mask on and keep silent. But I won't, because I don't want these appalling tactics to succeed.

She didn’t say anything regarding masks. Back in the ‘90s, she wrote an op-ed titled “Why I Won’t Wear a Red Ribbon,” referring to the AIDS ribbons celebrities used to wear. No one except for DL elders remembers it, but said DL elders will copy and paste the letter, altering the verbiage to parody whatever social cause suits them. That is what OP has done here.

Even after we are down to less than 5 soaps on the air, Deidre still can't win an Emmy

25 years after she launched the most aggressive Emmy campaign to secure a nomination in 1995. Spending thousands of dollars to make hundreds of copies of an Emmy reel to send to every single contract player on every soap on the air at that time. That turned people off, and they voted against her denying her a nomination.

A few years back, she tried one last time to get a nomination (we are down to only 4 soaps) - in the prejudging she came in last place! Dee Dee finally just threw in the towel.

Sometimes the stars are just not aligned with you.
