It’s rare that you hear world-known models being fired for being overweight but that is exactly what happened to 28-year-old Chrissy Teigen.

The Sports Illustrated model revealed in an interview with DuJour that she was fired for being “too fat” from none other than Forever 21.

“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.  They shot 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 come get your measurements taken.’ And I hate you, Forever 21. I hate you so much. Honestly you’re the worst.”

Chrissy even shared the horrible news on Twitter.  A fan tweeted her, “saw something on E news that Forever 21 fired you for being fat?”

John Legends soon to be wife replied, “yep they suck and I hate them.”

Wow… But doesn’t Forever21 sell all sizes, even a  plus size line?

  1. Absolutely disgusting behaviour. It’s this kind of thing that exacerbates the huge issues with body image and the associated disorders which are plaguing people’s lives.

    Never heard of Forever 21, but I’m already disappointed with them!
