Actress Kirstie Alley has hit out at Abercrombie and Fitch, for not catering for bigger women. Kirstie says that she would never buy anything from Abercrombie and Fitch, as she feels that the company discriminates against a certain type of woman, something which was confirmed by the CEO a while back.
Abercrombie and Fitch CEO, Mike Jeffries, said a few years back, "Because good-looking people attract other good-looking people, and we want to market to cool, good-looking people. We don't market to anyone other than that." These comments recently resurfaced, causing Kirstie Alley to hit out at the brand.
Kirstie was chatting ti Entertainment Tonight, when she told them, "Abercrombie clothes are for people who are cool and look a certain way and are beautiful and are thin and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. That would make me never buy anything from Abercrombie."
While Abercrombie and Fitch make clothes in the mens range, which reach sizes up to XL and XXL, they refuse to cater for bigger women in the women's range. Mike Jeffries has released a new statement, claiming that his comments were taken out of context and that Abercrombie and Fitch would never promote discrimination.
