Vanity Fair has kicked up a major sexism row with THIS photo

The photo depicts the ‘titans of late night television’ – and all ten of them are men.

SO, LAST NIGHT Vanity Fair put out an article from their latest issue titled ‘Why late-night television is better than ever’.

The accompanying photo on Twitter showed the ‘titans’ of late-night telly in the States – and people quickly noticed its distinct lack of diversity:

Twitter user Sebastian Nebel was one of the first to comment on it, and his tweet exploded with over 1000 retweets

Which then led to a debate amongst hundreds of people as to the state of TV presenting roles in the US

Most people were blown away to see such a vivid representation of just how many lads there are in the top jobs

Then, of course, the photoshopping began – and some of them were excellent

In just over 12 hours, the Vanity Fair photo has already become a meme

Quick work, internet.
