Neil French, (ex) director criativo mundial do Grupo WPP, justifica a sua saída após comentários sexistas feitos no início deste mês em Toronto, no Canadá.
What do you make of how the Toronto remarks have been interpreted?
It's death by blog, isn't it? You had to be there. I laugh a lot on stage and I say outrageous things, but people come to be entertained. They paid [$125] to sit there. If they wanted Martin Luther King, they went to the wrong gig. I'm well-known for being as outrageous as I can to make the point that I want to make. Advertising is hyperbole and I exercise hyperbole as much as I can, but I laugh when I'm doing it. You can't storyboard a smile, as somebody said.
