It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t love Forever21: the cute clothes, the great prices, all the celebs who wear the same stuff we do. But we recently found out some not-so-great information about the coveted brand. Our girl Chrissy Teigen revealed in a behind-the-scened interview with Dujour magazine, that she was actually fired from a Forever21 shoot for being… wait for it… fat.
“They booked me directly and I showed up on set and they asked me if they could take a photo,” she said in the video. “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.'” She followed by saying “I have you Forever21, I hate you so much, honestly, you are the worst.”
Oof. Those are some strong words, but honestly, Teigen has every right to be upset. Besides the fact that she’s clearly not “fat,” Forever21 is a brand for, well, 21-year-olds and younger… they really shouldn’t be judging girls like that. Of course, Teigen did say this was years ago when she was “much younger,” so hopefully, whoever was on that set with her is no longer working in the business….
We reached out to Foreve21 for a comment, but no one has gotten back to us as of yet. We will update this story if we do hear from the brand. Watch the video below to hear Teigen speak about her experience.
