In a video interview with DuJour magazine, supermodel Chrissy Teigen said that she was fired from a Forever 21 shoot when she was younger for being "too fat." In case you had forgotten, the body norms espoused by the fashion industry are ludicrous and unhealthy. Surprise!!


"I showed up on set and they asked me if they could take a photo," she told the mag. "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 get your measurements taken.'" Ew. Just horrible. Very admirably, Chrissy recognizes that the problem lies with the famed purveyor of boldly-patterned fabric scraps and not with her — she cheerfully added, "I hate you, Forever 21. I hate you so much. Honestly, you're the worst."

The rest of the interview is filled with beautiful gems, including: Teigen is asked what her favorite John Legend song is and, in response, she goes on at length about the John Legend song she loathes; she says she would be a First Daughter if she could be anyone for a day; she discusses eating a raw cashew nut and hallucinating and then cackling-while-barfing. A+ talking points. [DuJour]
