6645: WTF JWT.
Kiss My Blacks Ads pointed out the JWT New York intern t-shirt depicted above, and wondered about the insensitivity displayed by the whip marks on the back of the garment. Actually, it’s not shocking or even surprising. After all, this is an agency where the CEO coined “Idea Racism.” Plus, former JWT executive Marian Salzman still takes credit for having discovered wiggers. JWT/NY also opted to reject partnering with New York City’s Commission on Human Rights on diversity. Instead, the culturally clueless company publishes lame recruitment ads while shutting down entire offices without prejudice. Wonder if the Commodore was running slave ships.
