Instagram post by @designacademyeindhoven Design Academy Eindhoven

One #TVclerici segment I struggled with was Job Smeets on Design Date. He was (blind) interviewing students for a fictitious job in his “new band” Blow Job. The students were not amused and a “match” was not made. Job announced that he was going to offer a job to nobody, but the students were already walking off stage anyway. I couldn’t let it go without a comment and walked back onstage to face the audience: "Sometimes Donald Trump wins, but that kind of Donald Trump behavior doesn't represent #TVclerici, or #DesignAcademyEindhoven and hopefully doesn't represent Dutch designers.”

    It would seem he was being a provocateur to elicit a reaction... he would have to know how tone deaf this would come off, are you certain his behavior was not with a dual purpose? Perhaps he wanted to show how easily people are offended, even artists and designers.
