This Sports Illustrated Model Was Actually Fired From A Forever 21 Shoot For Being 'Fat'
Chrissy Teigen — Sports Illustrated model, wife of the wonderful John Legend and Twitter personality — can seemingly do no wrong.
But according to her former client Forever 21, Teigen has one particular area in which she can improve.
In a statement that sounds so wrong it really shouldn't be real, Teigen admitted that earlier in her modeling career, she was actually fired from a gig with F21 because — get this — she was too "fat."
In a video interview with DuJour, Teigen revealed the negative experience, in which she was called to do a shoot with the low-end retailer, but then was excused from the job in the middle of the set.
I actually was fired from a job. Forever 21. They booked me directly when I was much younger. I showed up on set and they asked me if they could take a photo and they shoot that photo off to my agency who then calls me as I'm sitting in the makeup 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.' And I hate you, Forever 21. I hate you so much. Honestly, you're the worst.
After hearing this, we hate Forever 21 too.
It's unbelievable that such a beautiful woman (who is skinny by pretty much everyone else's standards) could be deemed too large to model for these so-so clothes.
Stop the fat shaming, F21. Chrissy Teigen is perfect, then and now.
