Fat Is As Fat Does So Just Learn to Deal, Say Many People to Clueless A&F CEO
Backlash grows to Abercrombie & Fitch's "ostentatious dick" of a CEO Mike Jeffries' call for just the cool thin kids thanks, despite his non-apology noting that they're an "aspiration brand" but they care about all you slobs of losers out there too. Sales are down, petition signatures are up, protests have sprouted, a defiant Fatkini has sold out and The Militant Baker has thanked Jeffries in an open letter complete with A&F parody photos, for his "infamous catalog," his "unoriginal concept that fat women are social failures," and thus his accidentally creating "an incredible opportunity to challenge our current social construct."
