South Florida shoppers find Abercrombie and Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries’ comments that the company’s clothes are only for ‘cool kids with lots of friends’ very distasteful.
NBC Miami quotes several South Florida shoppers: Fresia Espinosa said discrimination by businesses is unacceptable.
“I don’t think any company should discriminate against any kind of person – fat, skinny, gender-wise. They’ve always done that,” she said of Abercrombie & Fitch. “That’s always been their image, so I think that’s what’s made them so successful also.”
“I don’t stick to that stuff,” Espinosa’s friend Jose Hernandez said. “Plus, it’s not like I fit in it either.”
