Months after it was first reported, Vogue's still got a serious rat problem at its new One World Trade Center offices. According to Page Six, "petrified" Vogue staffers keep spotting the rodents around their workspaces. But when they go to Anna, no sympathy is offered. She reportedly told editors, "I don't want to hear about it," when fielding complaints about rats on and under desks, according to Page Six's anonymous source. This is progress, though: just a couple months ago, Anna supposedly said she wouldn't move into the new offices until all the rats were removed.
Another source denied that there were still rats running around the office, but Condé Nast has reportedly warned staffers not to eat at their desks in order to try and starve the rats out.
