Last week Abercrombie & Fitch got the first taste of their own medicine when a man in LA handed out A&F t-shirts to the homeless after CEO Mike Jeffries said the brand was only for thin & attractive people.
Now female plus-sized blogger Jes M. Baker from themilitantbaker.com has posted her very own A&F “Attractive & Fat” photo campaign where she models the too tight t-shirts herself!
She wrote an open letter to CEO Jeffries:
....I know you've been flooded with mail regarding your comments on sizeism, but I wanted to take a second to write you about a project I've been working on…… I've enclosed some images for your consideration. Please let me know what you think……. I was inspired by the opportunity to show that I am secure in my skin and to flaunt this by using the controversial platform that you created. I challenge the separation of attractive and fat, and I assert that they are compatible regardless of what you believe. Not only do I know that I'm sexy, but I also have the confidence to pose nude in ways you don’t dare. You are more than welcome to prove me wrong by posing shirtless with a hot fat chick; it would thrill me to see such a shoot.”
