Is this true, or just a weird joke?!

Major fail, Old Navy!!
The Gap-owned brand has found itself in some hot water again after up-charging for their women's plus-size jeans.
And with a range between a $12 to $15 price increase, customers are calling out this very obvious discrepancy! Especially considering all men's jeans remain the same price regardless the size.
A Change.Org petition has even been launched to change Old Navy's pricing policies, garnering over 35,000 signatures already! Renee Posey, the creator of the petition, shared:
Old Navy is the latest retailer accused of Photoshopping thigh gaps on their products, particularly the mannequins wearing their plus-size denim.
Though the retailer explained:
Yay! We can finally see her bump!
The Client List actress got into the spirit of things at the Old Navy Mickey Through the Decades t-shirt collection launch in El Lay on Saturday.
Her old time 1928 Mickey & Minnie shirt showed off just enough of her growing baby to make us AOL, or “awww out loud.”
It’s also good to see that JLH wasn’t following the mommy trend of potentially hazardous stilettos, and instead went for a safer pair of wedges.

Adults are finally getting comfortable with the term "plus-size", but is it okay for larger kids lines to be called the same?
The question was raised after Today checked into Sears' newly launched Pretty Plus collection, which offers "roomier" clothes for girls age 7 to 10, as well as Gap, Old Navy and The Children's Place plus-size clothing for children as young as 3.
Sometimes kids just need the larger sizes because they've grown faster, not necessarily because they are overweight, which is where the naming dilemma comes in.
With self-esteem issues coming up at very young ages, maybe it’s time to rethink the use of the word “plus.”
