It's Not OK

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

There are things that are just NOT Okay & I am really steamed about the message
Micheal Jeffries,CEO is sending to all of us,but especially our young people....

Ellen sums it up perfectly~


Thanks for stopping by & remember You Are Beautiful.

***Footnote~ I get that there will always be small -minded people with messed up views,but WHY hasn't A&F stood up & replaced this guy???They are endorsing his views by their failure to address the situation.

    Does this CEO have a home address? Think we should all go over there and give him a piece of our minds. Vote with your dollars!

    We don't have A&F in Australia which sounds like a really really good thing. Negative messages are just NOT cool.

    I agree with you Sami! This guy is so far into his own world that he is not living in the real world. Its quite sad. This sends the wrong message to everyone.

    I had no idea about this! No one in our family has ever shopped at that store, and I have been in total disagreement and repulsed by their marketing and advertising. Just another "bully" in the media exerting muscle again to make people feel less than they are, and feel that they don't live up to a certain standard. Then we wonder why so many women and men don't feel good about their bodies? Why so many of our girls have eating disorders? We can't escape the media . . .

    It's terrible for a grown man to be sending this negative message to struggling young adults.

  Since my own daughters were smart enough not to shop at A&F, I was never aware of the store's styles. However, my complaint concerns the thumping beat that blasts out of there at shoppers as they pass through the mall. It is so loud that it surely must break a noise ordinance law. They bully EVERYONE, one way or another.

    Mr. CEO is quite pig-headed, blind, and out-of-touch with reality.. Targeting small sizes and "cool" people. He is seriously demented.

What comes around goes around, he will get his. Karma.

    I so totally agree with you! If that's what being cool is, then I don't want to be cool even if I could wear their clothes! I hate that kind of discrimination.

    I'm going to take this moment to be a little troll. LOOK at that guy. His face looks like it's been DESTROYED by cosmetic surgery. And he's talking about who is and isn't cool?! He looks like a victim of a Godzilla attack.

Now I'll be real. Who wants to wear those stupid clothes anyway? Even thin girls get terrible muffin tops with those jeans, it's like the clothing is made to make you look like you aren't good enough.

AND it's always overly perfumed in the store.

AND the clothes are poor quality.

Not to mention overpriced.

    I say Ditch the Fitch. . . never shopped there anyway. But sure have more reason not to make THAT CEO's yearly bonus happen! UGH!!!!!!! Ellen is right on.

Thank you for sharing this. Proudly NOT a zero or double zero!
