Celebs Slam Wells Fargo for Ads Discouraging the Arts

Celebs are upset with Wells Fargo after the bank released an ad that seemingly discouraged teenagers from pursuing the arts as careers.

The advertisement for a Teen Day later this month shows two kids in a classroom. The caption for the girl reads, “A ballerina yesterday. An engineer today. Let’s get them ready for tomorrow.”

The caption for the boy reads, “An actor yesterday. A botanist today. Let’s get them ready for tomorrow.”

Lots of celebs, including many in the Broadway community, immediately took to Twitter to shoot down the idea that one cannot pursue the arts. There were also many jokes made about how Wells Fargo is featured in the musical The Music Man!

Read what people like Paul Wesley, Josh Groban, and Tony winners Laura Benanti and Cynthia Erivo are saying:

The company eventually released this apology statement: “Wells Fargo is deeply committed to the arts, and we offer our sincere apology for the initial ads promoting our Sept. 17 Teen Financial Education Day. They were intended to celebrate all the aspirations of young people and fell short of that goal. We are making changes to the campaign’s creative that better reflect our company’s core value of embracing diversity and inclusion, and our support of the arts. Last year, Wells Fargo’s support of the arts, culture and education totaled $93 million.”
