After all the heat Lululemon's gotten for their recalled see-through yoga pants, you'd think their co-founder, Chip Wilson, would be bending over backwards to win back and win over customers, right? But no! In one fell swoop on Bloomberg TV's Street Smart yesterday, the company's chairman (who stepped down as CEO a while back) backtracked and delivered a completely outrageous, offensive "explanation" for complaints that the brand's yoga pants are too sheer and occasionally pilling. Sounds like in Wilson's humble opinion, some women are just too fat to wear Lululemon.
"Frankly some women's bodies just don't actually work for it," Wilson said. He continued, "They don't work for some women's bodies. It's really about the rubbing through the thighs, how much pressure is there over a period of time, how they much they use it."
You have GOT to be kidding us!
