“fitch please” Ellen’s genius take on Abercrombie and Fitch

If you’ve been watching the news you may have heard of the Abercrombie and Fitch scandal  Basically, they will no longer carry women’s clothing above a size 10 because the CEO claims they only want attractive people in their clothes. RIDICULOUS. The best argument I have heard so far has been from Ellen Degeneres.

Here are a few tidbits from her video.

Since when is something over size 10 a plus size?

There is a size 0. 0 is nothing.

Now they have a double 0. What are we aspiring to? Does these jeans make my butt look invisible?

Beauty isn’t between a 0 and a size 8. Beauty isn’t a number at all. It’s not physical.

What you look like on the outside is not what makes you cool at all. What is important is that you are healthy, that is the most important thing. That you are healthy and happy.

And the video – it’s worth a watch. Not only because she’s funny but because she genuinely has some important things to say.

P.S. My list of people I wish to meet now goes like this.

1) President Obama

2) Ellen

3) Darren Criss

Ellen has now surpassed Darren Criss aka Blaine from Glee.

    This is important. Ellen’s words are important. Forget A&F as the reason why she said them. Just listen to what she says and let those words sink in. This woman is amazing, and I love her even more for saying these words!!!

    Ellen is a great role model for anyone. Her spirit is amazing and I loved that you shared this. Thanks, Kate!

  6. I love EVERYTHING about Ellen. I think that she is such a positive role model and probably one of the most genuine people on this planet.

    • Agreed. I think what I like most about her is how genuine she is. I literally teared up watching the video (okay pathetic maybe but still)….:)
