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.”

Busch Gardens Flamingo Euthanized After Violent Attack By Park Visitor

A Busch Gardens Flamingo by the name of Pinky was euthanized on Tuesday (August 2) in Tampa Bay, Florida after being attacked by a male by the name of Joseph Anthony Corrao.

The patron went up to Pinky at around 6:45 pm and apparently picked her up and slammed her on the ground.

He was arrested and charged with aggravated cruelty to an animal, and is currently being held on a $5,000 bond at the Orient Road Jail.

The AP reports that Pinky was known as a “diva extraordinaire,” and while they tried to save her, they decided she should be euthanized because the injuries she suffered were severe.

Pinky was a beloved member of the Busch Gardens Tampa Bay family,” Busch Gardens said in a statement. “[She] made many appearances on behalf of the park’s conservation and education efforts. She will be sorely missed.”

Earlier in the summer, a gorilla by the name of Harambe was killed after a child crawled into his enclosure.

Pokemon Go Adds $9 Billion to Nintendo's Worth in One Week

Unless you’ve been living under a rock this week, you’ve probably heard about Pokemon Go as it has become a huge craze!

After debuting less than a week ago, stocks in Nintendo have risen by almost 40%, which added $9 billion to the video game company’s worth, according to BuzzFeed.

Despite the massive stock surge, analysts say that Nintendo only stands to generate about $10 to $20 million annually from the game.

Some crazy things have happened to players since the game launched – a teen found a dead body in a river while playing it, armed robbers have used the game to find potential targets, and a man’s home was turned into a destination where people went to train their Pokemon.
