What do you do when that stupid thing you said gets circulated all over the Internet?
Release a (sort of) apology statement!
Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries' remarks about not wanting overweight people to wear his company's clothes have gone viral, and prompted a young man to rebrand the retailer by donating thrifted Abercrombie duds to homeless people.
Even Kirstie Alley spoke up about it!
Naturally, the PR firm that represents the brand had to come up with an attempt at damage control –and here it is!
Abercrombie & Fitch just lost three more customers!
Kirstie Alley is giving CEO Mike Jeffries a piece of her mind after hearing he doesn't want fat people wearing A&F's clothes.
The actress said:
"Abercrombie clothes are for people who are cool and look a certain way and are beautiful and are thin' and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. That would make me never buy anything from Abercrombie… I’ve got two kids in that bracket, but they will never walk in those doors because of his view of people — forget women, his view of just people."
You go, girl!
We're sure your 18 and 20-year-old's money will be better spent at inclusive retailers anyway!

This time Kirstie Alley is getting blasted instead of doing the blasting herself!
And the person doing the blasting is a bonafide movie icon - Tippi Hedren!
The star of The Birds does not approve of Alley's pet lemur collection, and Tippi ain't afraid to speak her mind!
Here's what she said:

What's awful about this is that we actually like Kirstie Alley — but we will not stand for her getting in the way of people in need getting proper treatment.
We do our best around here to support people making decisions to believe or not in whatever religion they choose, so long as they're not ruining other peoples' lives in doing so. We would do that with Scientology too, but Scientology is wack! There's no way around it! LOLz!
Unfortunately, Kirstie Alley is a Scientologist, and has now started slamming antidepressant ad campaigns because scientologists strongly oppose the use of antidepressants and other drugs meant to treat psychiatric problems. For a religion with the word 'science' basically in the name, we can't help but shake our heads that they would argue against science at all.
Here's what Kirstie said:
Kirstie Alley finally found peace with a diet that works for her, and because she's been slimming down like crazy lately, she now thinks she's too dang small… so she says!
And to show us that she likes her bod with extra meat, she screwed her head onto a voluptuous woman, and tweeted:

She’s finally baaaaaaaaack!
Kirstie Alley is officially back on TV because girlfriend has gotten her new sitcom, Kirstie’s New Show, picked up for 12 episodes.
And she’s bringing her former Cheers costar, Rhea Pearlman, with her!
We could not be more excited to see the funny lady back with a TV Land sitcom this fall.
Playing a Broadway star, we have a feeling Kirstie is going to win with this role, especially since Rhea is playing her assistant.
But don’t let us tell you all about it, check out Kirstie’s promo for the show (above) to see which other major stars are joining her!!
Think they've got a hit??
