A Lesson In Ethics: From A Miami Advertising Agency

“Now here’s a little story I’ve got to tell/
About one small agency you don’t know so well/
It started way back in history/
With a writer, a client, and Miami – see/”

Client for an Australian bank is meeting with a creative team at a small-ish Miami agency. Client says to Jewish writer:

“If you want inspiration on how to persuade people, you should read Hitler’s Mein Kampf — His words inspired millions!”

Jewish writer walks out of room. The agency doesn’t say anything to client, but later takes the writer off of the account. Now, I’m sure that writer didn’t want to be on the account anyway, but I’m wondering… do you think the agency should of resigned the client, said something? The floor is open for your comments.
