For many in the fashion industry Kate Moss is the epitome of glamour, however a new line of t-shirts quoting the English supermodel have just been yanked from the shelves of Hudson’s Bay Company.
Years back, Ms. Moss uttered the phrase, “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels,” and ever since it’s been a popular motto for ladies trying slim down.
And HBC decided to put Kate’s credo on a new collection of casual t-shirts, though overwhelming backlash from offended consumers has put the kibosh on the whole thing.
Per a press release from HBC, "We truly value our relationship with our customers and take their concerns seriously and we recognize that many took offense to the item. In this particular instance, while we respect the designer's art, due to the overwhelming response and the sensitivity of the matter, we made the decision to promptly remove the T-shirts from our stores and from thebay.com."
Designer Christopher Lee Sauve, who created the shirt and is still selling it on his website, also weighed in- "Most, if not all of my designs showcase some type of statement pointing out the absurdity of fashion, and this one item is no exception. I fully understand and comprehend the severity of an eating disorder and I do not condone celebrating such pain."
