Never tell artists they're inferior to those in STEM job fields.
Wells Fargo published a brochure to promote "Teen Day" on Sept. 17, but some artists thought it belittled the arts in the process.
STEM (science, technical, engineering and math) education is widely touted as essential in a tech-driven world, but the Wells Fargo ad seemed to imply studying the arts instead was foolish.
The banking giant apologized on Saturday.
I think "the anybankotherthen Wells Fargo wagon is a COMIN down the street" has a nice ring to it.— steven pasquale (@StevePasquale) September 4, 2016
Actors, and ballerinas
But that didn't prevent the artists' vitriol.
Some pointed out "The Music Man" even features a line about a "Wells Fargo wagon."
Some Twitter users threatened to hit Wells Fargo in the wallet.
I swear, if any of the kids from STRANGER THINGS become engineers/ botanists because of this Wells Fargo ad, there's gonna be hell to pay.— John Wascavage (@JohnWascavage) September 3, 2016
We're not sure what "Stranger Things" has to do with this.
