Being Worshipped Against My Will
Without me asking for it or provoking it, I now have a following of fans who refer to me on social media as a ‘god.’ They have built a virtual cult around me. I have no control over the fact this is happening. And I have no way of communicating to these people at large that I don’t like this.
It all started when I appeared on TV one time to promote a product I invented in an effort to sell it to earn a livelihood. This led to many more TV and media appearances. It’s been good for business, and in that sense, I have no regrets. The cult following is an unintended consequence that I find really disturbing.
