Wells Fargo made a brochure that seems to make fun of the arts, and Twitter was not happy


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.

But that didn't prevent the artists' vitriol. 

Some pointed out "The Music Man" even features a line about a "Wells Fargo wagon."

Would you tell a kid not to pursue a career in the arts?

Some Twitter users threatened to hit Wells Fargo in the wallet.

We're not sure what "Stranger Things" has to do with this.
