Good. “Religious Exemption” is a joke, just like religion itself. Dude should be mindful of others, but since he doesn’t care, neither do we

Some day, when the covid virus is finally eliminated, I hope people will look back on 2021, and realize how foolish it was to think vaccine mandates were somehow an infringement of our personal freedoms, and thought it was a good idea to take chances with their lives.

He had applied for medical and religious exemptions to the vaccine mandate but was denied.

"Which, you know, hurts," Burton said. "But this is also about personal freedom to me..." so is it rel? Med? Or personal??? Just admit it.... #GetVaccinatedNow

Wow. I'm just shocked that people are practically being forced to get a vaccine. I got it, because I wanted it. That's beauty of a free country. You are supposed to be able make decisions for yourself. No can force me have surgery or take meds. It's sad.

This is not surprising. It's a Disney mandate. He worked for the company and when he refused to comply with the mandate, GH let him go.

TELLING PPL THEY CAN'T EARN A LIVING UNLESS/​UNTIL THEY ARE VAXXED IS COMPLETELY UNCONSTITUTIONAL! IT IS EVERY PERSON'S RIGHT TO DECIDE WHAT IS BEST FOR THEMSELVES! I WILL NEVER GET VAXXED!

I love GH and Burton as Jason, but he made a choice. Now he must live with the consequences. Can't wait to see who GH hires as his replacement.

Wow I can’t believe he doesn’t want to take a vaccine that cures nothing. And with deaths and hospitalizations down the way they are…oh, wait 🙄🙄🙄

Too bad there isn't anything he can do to continue working there, like, two quick injections that help everyone

Good for him having principles. Anyone criticizing him I doubt would give up their job for their beliefs

I guess America is now a communist America. We no longer have Freedom of choice. There’s about 75 percent of of Americans that have chosen to NOT TAKING THE DEATH SHOT. The people that have taken the shots are dying. WE ARE FIGHTING TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
