Damnit Jerry! Who Says Fat People Can't Wear Abercrombie & Fitch?

As you may be aware, the douchedoggle CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch revealed not too long ago that the clothing store does not make clothes for plus-sized folks because he "doesn't want larger people shopping in his store, he wants thin and beautiful people." That, of course, provoked the Internet into reminding the world that CEO, Mike Jeffries, is an ugly son of a bitch himself.

Anyway, on Jimmy Kimmel last night, Jim O'Heir -- best known as Jerry from "Parks and Recreation" -- demonstrated that overweight people can wear Abercrombie & Fitch clothing. It just needs a little modification.

    Abercrombie settled in a discrimination lawsuit in 2004: http://usatoday30.usatoday.com...

    There's an awesome AMA at Reddit from a former manager spilling the beans about the company's practices. It's a great read, if you're looking to exercise your rage muscles:

    Is he also against people with a sense of smell purchasing his clothing? That's the only reason I can think of for why I get hit with the scent of nauseating perfume/cologne every time I have the misfortune of walking by their store.

    I find it funny that this is just becoming news. I had a buddy like six or seven years ago who worked at Abercrombie and he explained to me how any employee who wasn't model quality was forced to work in the back and never allowed in the front. And that even slightly overweight people, i.e. fat-skinny people who aren't totally fit, aren't even considered for jobs.

    Or "gay-fat," if you will. I was gay-fat since I was 26, up to which point I had been clinically underweight. Like, Hedi Slimane underweight. I finally got to be fat-fat around my mid-thirties.

    At no point in time, underweight, gay-fat or fat fat, have I ever been the least bit interested in wearing Aberzombie and Bitch. Or Tommy Middlefinger, for that matter (since that was what all the black kids wanted to wear back in the day).

    People who are relatively thin by nature, but don't work out and aren't in good shape.

    It's Jerry's fault Lil' Sebastian is missing.

    I love it! If only it didn't involve spending a dime in that shopping establishment. Also, who doesn't love Jim O'Heir?
