This isn’t the first time he has made such statements either. They don’t carry XL or XXL sizes of women’s clothing because they don’t want overweight women wearing their clothes.
This of course was not going to sit well with a lot of people, and rightfully so!
He is facing severe disapproval and scorn and that scorn reached a maximum pitch when his promotion of anti-plus-size policy reached Reddit!

Now here’s a man who has been sticking to his guns, no matter how stinky they are. With so many people wishing horrible demise to his fortune, we would love waiting for any one of them coming true. Or at least some worthwhile opposition that can get the giant of ‘propriety’ twitch an eyebrow or make some policy changes!
