Abercrombie Doesn’t Want Your Business If You Are This…

teen shoppingHere we go again. More insanity from CEO MIke Jeffries of Abercrombie &Fitch.

Jeffries is like the school bully who says mean things and somehow gets away with it.

He is no stranger to offending people. And seems rather pleased with his discriminatory and elite views about people.

His latest has to do with who he wants shopping in his stores. Not you, if you are overweight!

According to Robin Lewis, author of The New Rules of Retail, Jeffies wants thin and beautiful people advertising his brand. If your not hot, don’t bother coming into the store. You are not the customer Jeffries wants.

In a 2006 Salon interview, Jefrries confirmed his highly discriminating stance. He explained that he only hires good looking people to attract other good looking people. Good looking, hot, thin people are who he wants. If you aren’t one of the “cool”people, he doesn’t want you wearing his clothes. You just can’t belong to his little club!

This really sounds like high school to me.

My response to this:

Way to encourage eating disorders and more body obsession

Way to focus on things that don’t matter

Way to discriminate against people because of their weight.

If he was a politician saying this, he would be in real trouble.

So the only way to respond is to not shop at his “COOL” store.

P.S. I hope the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance has something to say to Mr. Jeffries!
