the company says they won't make clothes over a size 10, what do you think about that
I honestly dont care, I think it's the company's right to sell and not sell to whoever they want, this is America where you are free to build and own your own business and do what you please with it. There are plenty of 'big and tall' and 'plus sized' stores for overweight people only. Theyre somewhat encouraging people to care about their health even if it's in a negative way that probably wont do any good. I dont wear that sh1t and tend to not like people who wear it, not because theyre wearing it, but because they usually suck as individuals, but even so, more power to the company! How are you going to tell companies they need to cater to overweight people? They dont. Im all for it, really, if you're having a hard time finding clothes in your size maybe you should make some changes, it's more than likely that it's about freakin' time.
Honestly, I think it is the consumers that should be boycotting them. I hate Abercrombie and Fitch, that includes Hollister which is owned by the same company, always have. I, honestly, can't understand why they are such a popular store.
Their clothes aren't all that special, it's pretty much the same stuff all the other stores sell; whatever's "in".
Read the article I put in the link ;o they pretty much discriminate against anyone who is not "perfect".
Judging by their advertising, I would say that part of their advertising includes the people who wear their clothes, they're trying to make it seem as though a certain type of person wears their clothing, sexy, better-than-you people wear their stuff, they dont want over-weight people advertising their clothing, is what I would say. I hate their crap too, haha, so whatever's clever in the eyes of the company.
I see that. But along with all the other discriminatory stuff they have done, I've come to really hate them lol, not that I ever liked their stuff. Sticking a girl who, initially, was deemed hot enough to work in the store into the backroom to be out of sight because of her prosthetic arm is pretty crap, not to mention the other crap the same company's pulled.
If you can't fit in their clothes, aren't you ostensibly 'boycotting' by proxy? Instead of boycott a superficial brand that Excludes you, how about promoting a brand that Includes you, or create one that does. Otherwise you're going to remain dissatisfied, possibly for the rest of your life.
Apparently, she wore a long-sleeved shirt or something that hid the prosthetic so they didn't know til she came in for work!
I don't know... I like Hollister, so I'm not sure. I definitely hate that they are discriminating against thicker women...
I cant believe they hired her at all! My dumbass computer wouldnt let me read it the other day!
YeA! :S that was the link I posted with my original reply.
I never heard that before, that's wicked f*cked!
I think it's disgusting. Absolutely disgusting.
