No matter who you are, there's a good chance you're at least somewhat familiar with FCC Chairman Ajit Pai. Pai proposed to repeal Obama-era net neutrality laws that have been in place since 2015, and on December 15, 2017, this proposal was officially passed in a 3-2 vote.

Pai's stance on net neutrality has made him an incredibly disliked public figure, and it's gotten to the point where his safety has been put at risk. A bomb threat was called in during the December 15 meeting right before the net neutrality repeal, and now it's been confirmed that Pai won't be attending CES 2018 due to death threats.
