Last week, Abercrombie & Fitch's CEO announced his preference for selling his clothes exclusively to "cool," "good-looking" folks (and not "larger people," as industry expert Robin Lewis suggested). Unsurprisingly, many customers found this offensive, and even celebs like Ellen DeGeneres and Kirstie Alley have attacked the fashion brand.
Now blogger Jes M. Baker of The Militant Baker has written an open letter to the fashion giant, complete with "up yours" pics!
"The only thing you've done through your comments (about thin being beautiful and only offering XL and XXL in your stores for men) is reinforce the unoriginal concept that fat women are social failures, valueless, and undesirable. Your apology doesn't change this."
"I challenge the separation of attractive and fat, and I assert that they are compatible regardless of what you believe," Baker states in her letter to Jeffries.
Do you think this will have any effect on Abercrombie and Fitch? See all the pics below.
