During an interview and cover shoot with Du Jour, model Chrissy Teigen let slip this little story in a behind-the-scenes video spotted by Business Insider:
- "I actually was fired from a job. Forever 21. They booked me directly when I was much younger. I showed up on set, they asked me if they could take a photo and they shoot that photo off to my agency, who then calls me as I'm sitting in the makeup chair. And they say, 'You need to leave right now. They just said you are fat and you need to come get your measurements taken.' So I hate you, Forever 21. Hate you so much. Honestly, you're the worst."
notes that Teigen tweeted
back in 2012, "So next time you pass a Forever 21, remember the fact that they are a bunch of a--holes who fired me mid-makeup for being fat."
