I read an article today online about the CEO of the very popular store company, Abercrombie & Fitch. What caught my attention was the title of it! Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Explains Why He Hates Fat Chicks | Elite Daily. It is absolutely unbelievable.
Please take the time to read this article, it really makes you think. This is why our society is so torn up and distorted. Issues like this is why the rate of young girls with eating disorders is getting high each and every year. It honestly makes me so angry that people still believe and think the only “beautiful” out there is skinny people… this is untrue and only shows that more people need to be educated better. A & F should represent the average American lifestyle, not an altered image of “beauty”. Someone please give this CEO a wake up call. Leave your thoughts and comments and let me know what you think about all this. As Abercrombie & Fitch is a very popular brand, would you still wear their clothing and support it after reading this article? As I have said in my previous “Canadian Beauty” blog post, everyone is unique and beautiful in their own way. You never know, but someone may be envious of your insecurities. Please do not let the media ever tell you that you aren’t good enough, or perfect because the people you see in magazines are photo shopped and altered themselves! The CEO states that he only wants “good looking” and “popular” people to wear his brand of clothing. That’s why Abercrombie and Fitch only hires attractive people. It’s very superficial and shallow. I was happy to find a video to follow up with the article that shows how others may have reacted to this issue.
Watch this video to see how one person can start to make a change in our society. It really is amazing and gave me hope in people. A & F Brand Readjustment By Giving Their Clothes To The Homeless This is such an important issue that EVERYONE should think about. Let me know your thoughts! This video made me so happy! This man in the video gives Abercrombie and Fitch a brand readjustment by giving their clothes to the homeless. After searching his local thrift shop, he heads to LA’s Skid Row (greatest population of homeless people in America) to dole out the clothes among the homeless. This is truly inspirational and humbling.
