No Second Chance For Melissa Click? Mizzou Professor Suspended For First Amendment Hostility!

These days, the slightest misrepresentation can cost a career. Mizzou (University of Missouri) professor, Melissa Click is the latest victim of public ridicule and scrutiny. She quickly rose to fame after surveillance footage of her orchestrating an extraction team in support of student protests recently went viral. While Click protected the students’ interest, journalists successfully filmed her encouraging forceful removal of the media team on-site. This bold display of hostility didn’t just earn her an audience before the university’s disciplinary committee.

In another scenario, Click faces criminal charges for misdemeanor and assault. Mizzou System Board of Curators has already suspended Click while her case is undergoing further investigation. USA Today interviewed Click recently where she explained how this has changed her life. Although Click’s reputation as a Mizzou professor of communications before this incident has been exemplary, she’s surviving a social nightmare.

The Rising Star of Reputation Management

Darius Fisher is the man behind Status Labs. Darius is a native of New York and graduated with honors from Vanderbilt University. What is Status Labs you ask?

Darius’s vision for Status Labs was mainly born from his own experiences of a crisis he had to manage within his own company. “Who better to help an individual or company manage a crisis and repair their reputation, than someone who has lived through a crisis of their own?”, Fisher explained. His most recent success was honorable mentions from Yahoo and New York Times for assisting victims of the Ashley Madison hack. In my mind he is kind of like the “Better Call Saul” of the professional world.

Darius has many suggestions on getting ahead of a nasty PR campaign. He lives by by a few rules of thumb to keep a reputation shining. 1. Remove your personal data online. If you aren’t sure about lose it. 2. Change your social media privacy settings. 3. Change passwords frequently. 4. Google yourself. You never know what you might find about yourself that you didn’t know. 5. Do some personal housecleaning. If you aren’t sure, don’t post it. Harmless in your mind could be a gold mine for a persistent reputation hound.
