This Supermodel Was Fired For Being Fat
Chrissy Teigen is one of the word’s top models. But she was once told she had to “leave immediately” from a set because the client said she was too fat. Tiffany at Liberal America has the story.
In an interview with DuJour, Teigen — the wife of singer John Legend — shared the humiliating experience of being fired from Forever 21 in the middle of a set for being “fat.”
“I was actually 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 make-up 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 said.
