Really? Sports Illustrated Model Chrissy Teigen Fired By Forever 21 For Being ‘Too Fat’
Chrissy Teigen may have one of the hottest bodies out there, but the Sports Illustrated model still gets targeted by Twitter trolls on a regular basis and revealing some of the most shocking news in her career so far, she said that a recent modelling gig with Forever 21 fell through because she was dubbed “too fat.” Say what?
Chrissy has a perfect figure, but that doesn’t stop people criticising and bullying her online, with the model speaking out in a new interview to say that it’s not just trolls that target her, but she’s also had to deal with negativity in the industry as well because of her body size.
“I actually was fired from a job,” Teigen told DuJour. “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.”
She continued: “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 come get your measurements taken.’ And I hate you, Forever 21. I hate you so much. Honestly, you’re the worst.”
It’s no surprise that the babe later took to her Twitter and said that the clothing giants “suck” and that she “hates them”, when asked by a fan if the news was true.
And this isn’t the only thing that Chrissy has had to deal with, and continues to have to put up, with on a daily basis, with the model also constantly having abuse fired at her on Twitter.
She is constantly called “fat” online, but not one to take the comments lying down, she continuously blasts people that comment on her size – and good on her for doing so!
She posted, back in April: “Honestly f*** you all,” in response to the “weight gain” questioning.
The 28-year-old also said: “In what other real life situation would you walk up to someone and tell them they’re fat or gained weight? Seriously you are POS.”
“It’s amazing to me that I am told to get over the a**holes but the a**holes are never told to stop being pieces of s***,” she then continued.
Not only has she taken the modelling world by storm, but Chrissy also stars on MTV’s new series Snack-Off, where she gets to taste and debate some delicious food, and with her recently saying that she doesn’t taking modelling seriously – could this be the way forward for the star?
Either way, we think Chrissy looks perfect as she is!
