The CEO of Mike Jefferies, literally makes me sick. He encompasses so much of what is wrong with our society. The bullying, the discrimination and so many awful things that kid's deal with ... he helps fuel. The retailer purposely excludes larger customers by not carrying womens pants past the size of 10. In addition, the CEO say's the only reason Abercrombie carries XL and XXL is for larger "athletes". You dont want "fat" people wearing your clothes .. whatever... but THIS IS WHAT PISSES ME OFF. These particular comments that Mr. CEO made...
“In every school there are the cool and popular kids, and then there are the
not-so-cool kids,” He then continues to tell the website interviewing him. “Candidly, we go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don’t belong (in Abercrombie's clothes), and they can’t belong.
Are we exclusionary? Absolutely. Those companies that are in trouble are trying
to target everybody: young, old, fat, skinny. But then you become totally
vanilla. You don’t alienate anybody, but you don’t excite anybody, either,”
WHO THE F are you to dictate who is "cool" or not!!!?? GTFOH! By the way, you want to know what Mr. Big Shot CEO Mike Jefferies "Captian Cool Guy" looks like? Google this idiot... He looks like the love child of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Frankenstien ... with too much botox.
