Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries is facing intense criticisms and mockeries after a news article criticizing his advocacy of anti-plus-size policy reached on the front page of Reddit last night. In an interview with Business Insider published last week, retail industry analyst Robin Lewis claimed that Jeffries was intentionally trying to exclude overweight customers from shopping at his store, saying "he doesn't want larger people shopping in his store, he wants thin and beautiful people." The article went on to note that Jeffries had previously stated in an interview with Salon in 2006 that the company was intentionally exlusionary and only wished to market to "cool kids." Redditors were quick to point out Jeffries' own lack of appeal, making a slew of images insulting his looks and comparing him to actors like Gary Busey.
