A Message to Abercrombie's CEO from a Former Fat Girl
“My first thought was… Is this for real? Am I reading an article in The Onion or something? No. Sadly, this quote was actually uttered by a supposedly educated and successful adult.
My second thought was… Does this guy have kids? By all accounts, the answer is no. Thank God. Can you imagine having this insensitive man as your father? Clearly, he doesn’t have children because if he did, I can’t fathom that he would do what he’s doing.
He’s never had his eight-year-old come home in tears because another kid teased him in front of the rest of the class. He never had to watch his daughter cry herself to sleep because she somehow felt that she didn’t measure up, that she wasn’t good enough due to the shape or size of her body.
What is wrong with this dude? My guess is that he was an outcast as a kid and this is his ultimate revenge. He’s now successful and feels that this makes him one of the cool-kids by default. “
Totally awesome article. Worth the read.
