  • Popular Ad Blog @Adrants @Stevehall Under Fire for Sexist Article On New Agency Hires

    / Comments (0)

    The article giving Steve Hall and his popular ad blog Adrants even more attention than usual, titled "We Want to Work at Young & Laramore!" read:

    So why do we want to work at Indianapolis-based Young & Laramore? For salaciously selfish, purely prurient Neanderthal-ish reasons. What do we mean by this? Have you seen the trio of beauty they just hired? We know the advertising industry is filled with beautiful people but Young & Laramore has hit some sort of trifecta with the hiring of Sarah Halcombe as writer, Taylor Schaffer as brand action specialist and Sara Walker as assistant account manager.

    OK, enough with the buffoonish behavior. These ladies, no doubt, will kick ass at Young & Laramore regardless of their beauty because, after all, when it comes to working in advertising, it's what you know, not what you look like. We wish them well. But if we are ever in Indianapolis, we just might need an agency tour.

    The article has since been deleted from his blog, a brief exchange between the women on twitter ensued...

    ...then Jezebel ran the story....now we wait to see how this plays out.
