What’s Shitting You, Glamour?


OMG!!! According to Gawker, there is a mystery shitter at Glamour. Apparently Glamour’s employees are mad at the crazy working conditions and hours and leaving in droves. Is that enough to make a mystery shitter out of someone though? Meh?! What do you think? Photo from Gawker.

For years, the ladies’ room of the 16th floor of Glamour has had a
mystery shitter who has left enormous packages in various toilets and
appeared to purposefully not flush. Despite signs ranging from
laminated “please remember to flush” posters and haikus of middling
wit being taped inside each stall, the mystery shitter continues to shit, a
silent, odiferous protest against a work environment that regularly
keeps staffers there past midnight-3 a.m. nights are not unheard of.

From The Cut:

After a month of exclusive negotiations, Lagardère has sold all 102 of its international titles, including its fifteen international editions of Elle magazine, to Hearst Corporation for 651 million euros in cash (about $885.6 million). It’s still unknown to what degree Lagardère will retain editorial control over Elle, per their requests during the negotiations, but WWD reports that Lagardère “retains ownership of the Elle trademark and plans to oversee brand consistency.” The deal is expected to close within months.

The last thing I would want is for the fashion magazine to turn into a celebrity driven content machine. What do you think? Find out more details below.
