The voters have spoken and crowned American Apparel's first plus-size model! Unfortunately, the winner was stripped of her title almost immediately!
A writer at the Daily Beast decided to have fun with the model search by submitting ridiculous pictures of herself as a joke. Nancy Upton ended up winning, but AA decided they won't be awarding her the grand price.

What do U think of AA's decision???
