Ellen Destroys Abercrombie & Fitch CEO’s Comments on Plus Size Women

Ellen Destroys Abercrombie & Fitch CEO's Comments on Plus Size Women

When Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries’ comments resurfaced about refusing to sell plus size clothing earlier this month, the internet was rightfully outraged. His refusal to sell plus size clothing — unlike his direct competitors — is because he only wants “thin and beautiful” people shopping at his store. Apparently, Jefferies does not realize that Abercrombie has not been “cool” since the early aughts.

Ellen Degeneres, one of our favorite ladies hilariously and poignantly takes Jeffries and his idiotic comments down. In hopeful news, Jeffries is set to meet with Benjamin O’Keefe who set up a petition urging the retailer to sell plus sizes.
