Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Wins Contract Extension DESPITE Investors' Wishes! A&F Is So W&TF!

Abercrombie CEO gets a second chance!

Looks like Abercrombie & Fitch's controversial CEO will have another year to run the company into the ground! Ha!

The peeps at Abercrombie announced that despite a letter from investors urging Mike Jeffries to step down, they have extended his contract through February 2015.

We hope that this contract extension comes with some sensitivity training! Lots of it!

The new contract includes a $1.5 million salary, up to $6 million in target incentives, up to $4.5 million in bonuses, and use of the company's $200,000 private jet.

How nice for him.

But, really, give some thought to that sensitivity training, Abercrombie!

Abercrombie & Fitch's Crappy Sales Force Them To Add Larger Sizes Following CEO Controversy!

Abercrombie & Fitch caves into pressure to add larger sizes!

In today's shocking yet awesome news, Abercrombie & Fitch has reportedly made plans to stock larger sizes!

You may recall the brouhaha that resulted back in May when CEO Mike Jeffries was quoted as saying that he only wants "good-looking people in our stores," which presumably does not include any woman who wears anything over a pant size 10 and a top size large, since they don't stock any size above that.

But now, reports indicate that dwindling sales have forced the company to be more inclusive, like competitors H&M and American Eagle!

Leslee Herro, the company's head of planning and allocation, said:

Kirstie Alley Responds To Abercrombie & Fitch's Fat Comments! Vows To Never Shop There AGAIN!

kirstie alley wont shop abercrombie and fitch

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!
