When Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries' comments resurfaced about refusing to sell plus size clothing earlier this month, the internet was rightfully outraged. His refusal to sell plus size clothing -- unlike his direct competitors -- is because he only wants "thin and beautiful" people shopping at his store. Apparently, Jefferies does not realize that Abercrombie has not been "cool" since the early aughts.

Ellen Degeneres, one of our favorite ladies hilariously and poignantly takes Jeffries and his idiotic comments down. In hopeful news, Jeffries is set to meet with Benjamin O'Keefe who set up a Choice.org petition urging the retailer to sell plus sizes.

    Ellen is a huge inspiration and I love how humorous she is. This is a video I would want to share with all my friends. They are very insecure about their weight they're totally skinner and smaller than I am. I'm not overweight or anything, but they aren't either. Girls should love their looks no matter what.
