After offending hordes of customers for only offering small sizes in an effort to cater to "cool, good-looking people", Abercrombie & Fitch is under fire once again!
Slimane Laoufi, a member of France's human right watchdog group Defender of Rights, has launched an official investigation into Aber's unfair hiring practices after noticing the Champs-Elysees flagship store for only employing good looking people.
In a statement about the investigation, a rep for the group explained that Abercrombie & Fitch seems:
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.
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!
