In a video interview with DuJour magazine, supermodel Chrissy Teigen said that she was fired from a Forever 21 shoot when she was younger for being “too fat.” In case you had forgotten, the body norms espoused by the fashion industry are ludicrous and unhealthy. Surprise!!
“I showed up on set and they asked me if they could take a photo,” she told the mag. “And they shoot that photo off to my agency, who then calls me as I’m sitting in the make-up chair, and they say, ‘You need to leave right now. They just said that you are fat and you need to get your measurements taken.'” Ew. Just horrible. Very admirably, Chrissy recognizes that the problem lies with the famed purveyor of boldly-patterned fabric scraps and not with her – she cheerfully added, “I hate you, Forever 21. I hate you so much. Honestly, you’re the worst.”
