Screen Shot 2015-02-03 at 6.07.37 AMA job ad on graphic-jobs.com, placed by a company called NSL Studio, has been taken down, after one line in the ad said non-Jewish candidates are preferred.

One of the selection criteria listed in the job ad was “if possible, not Jewish.” France 24 TV says a French publication contacted NSL Studio to ask about the ad; NSL said it was looking for someone who “could work flexible hours and was not restricted by ‘cultural or religious concerns.'”

NSL Studio later backtracked, saying the line was added by someone outside the company and wasn’t supposed to be part of the ad. But graphic-jobs.com says it was not hacked.

The topic seems to be getting heavy attention on Twitter.
