“Let's don't expect the CEO of a company not to pay the price for insulting potential customers.”

“Saying their store is specialized for certain people is not insulting them. A plus size store does the same thing, they are not specialized for certain people either. A size 5 person is not a potential customer for a plus size store and I and my size 16 is not a potential customer for Lululemon.”
“You know nothing about Peyton Manning and his personal life if you want your kids to have him as a role model.
If all you want is for your children to have money and fame, then Peyton would be the go-to guy.
That is all.”

“The second paragraph is not snarky; it is incisive. Big difference.
The original poster made it seem that volunteering could turn depression around.
A therapist must first help to get a patient energetic and optimistic enough to actually attempt exercise, volunteering and socializing.”
“Ha, ha. I have a "bad attitude" because I am not slobbering over a guy like you are.
Makes me wonder what that's all about.
Have a good night.”

“No. You have a bad attitude because you cast doubt on someone's character, without knowing them.
I recognize a skilled professional, who works hard and deserves recognition for that work.
He might be a jerk, I don't know. And you don't either. But he doesn't have a "sense of entitlement" (that wouldn't apply here anyway, since traditionally you don't feel "entitled" to respond to critics- critics understand that those criticized might respond), he has a sense of accomplisment, maybe even superiority. But by all accounts he puts in the hours, puts in the work, and takes his job seriously.
We should recognize and praise that, because I'll tell you what, I'd want my kids to have Peyton as a role model more than most athletes.
Oh, and your snark with the rhetorical questions (that we both know the actual answers to) and the comment about "myob" counts as a bad attitude.
Like I said. If you don't want to get called on it, keep it to yourself.”
