2006: In a Salon.com interview, A&F CEO Mike Jeffries says "In every school there are the cool and popular kids, and then there are the not-so-cool kids,” he told the site. “Candidly, we go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don’t belong [in our clothes], and they can’t belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely." The quote is presumably forgotten because nobody gives a fuck.
2010: 28 workers making clothes for Abercrombie & Fitch and Target are killed in a massive fire at a sweatshop in Bangladesh. Some were burned to death, some suffocated to death, some jumped to their death, and hundreds more were seriously injured. Literally nobody on Tumblr gives a fuck.
2013: Mike Jeffries releases book in which he says the exact same thing as he said in 2006 and some additional disparaging comment about fat women. A concerned father starts a Change.org petition and Tumblrinas flock to their computers to support a boycott and brag about donating A&F clothes to Goodwill because clearly having poor people wear your clothes is the greatest indignity known to mankind.
