He wasn’t even being rude, I think he said it in the most respectful way possible.
He is speaking nothing but truth.
Huh? What he said is just logical. Give it to sensationalist media to take this out of hand -.-
@***** Indeed, all developed nation, not just Canada.
If you wear a too small size in a stretchy fabric, it will stretch a lot. Sorry people, common sense
i agree with chip its just common sense if your rubbing on pants that dont really fit right on you there obviously gonna rip… and be see through.. just common sense
chocolate chip or potato chip?
Truth hurts i guess
I feel sorry for Chip Wilson. Another victim of fat acceptance movement.
Physical reality is offensive now?
Time to buy LULU great price.
haha people are so sensitive.
With the risk of being politically incorrect – I don’t get why this CEO had to step down because he said his company’s yoga pants don’t work for all women’s bodies. What is the big deal about that? I mean there are clothing brands that work for my body and clothing brands that don’t. It isn’t even about weight. Upworthy recently posted a clip about the way the media/advertisers demean women. The clip shows advertisements from companies like Ford (bikini clad women bound/gagged in the back of a car) and Carl’s Jr. (barely dressed women eating their burgers off the ground on all fours like dogs) that I think are highly demeaning to women. And here the CEO of a company with a good track record for hiring women – which is all about women’s health – makes a comment about yoga pants that were being criticized as being too sheer. Basically he said sheer yoga pants don’t work for every woman’s body (they don’t work for mine btw). And he gets canned. Are you kidding me?? Is it me or is that over the top? Are our priorities and sense of what is offensive a little whacked? Why aren’t women writing petitions to have the senior executives of the companies with demeaning advertisements canned? Really? The guy said his pants don’t work for everyone. He didn’t put a half naked woman in the pants and chain her to a bed or something. Can someone please explain why what he said was so offensive it called for his firing????
Chip Wilson should have been fired just for wearing those red pants to the interview, jeesus!
Is that Michelle Pfeiffer?
Surprise the skinny girl says “I haven’t had any issues.” EXACTLY!!!!!
