Mike Jeffries Releases a Statement...That Falls Completely Flat.
May 17, 2013 — Mike Jeffries has finally ended his silence in the wake of our global campaign against the harmful and discriminating practices of his company and the truly disheartening statements of the man himself. But, when he finally spoke his words fell drastically short. His statement,
"We [Abercrombie&Fitch] are completely opposed to any discrimination, bullying, derogatory characterizations or other anti-social behavior based...body type or other individual characteristics."
is not only a lie but it is truly nothing short of a ploy to deter the tens of thousands who have have stood up against Abercrombie from the truth: Abercrombie does discriminate, because not offering clothing options clothing options for a larger sized audience IS discrimination and the words of Mike Jeffries ARE that of a bully. Well Mr. Jeffries, we are not going away. It's time you issue a true apology and it's time you start creating products that embrace people of all sizes!
