Jesse followed up about body image. sending people diet bars, shakes, teas, etc. with clothes they bought can send a negative message about body image. — jesse (@jessemarisaelao) July 19, 2019 Another Twitter user @MissGirlGames commented on receiving the Atkins bars and was very offended by it: I went from a size 24 to 18, still a plus size girl, so I ordered jeans from @Forever21 Opened the package, when I looked inside I see this Atkins bar. What are you trying to Tell me Forever 21, I’m FAT, LOSE WEIGHT? do you give these to NON-PLUS SIZE WOMEN as well? pic.twitter.com/ds8kUTs7T7 — MissGG?️? (@MissGirlGames) July 19, 2019 A representative of Forever 21 spoke with USA Today and said samples of the bar were included in orders "across all sizes and categories,” which have “since been removed” from distribution. It's a free sample, people. Why does everything have to be taken as an attack? Try the bar, maybe you like it and use it to spark your weight loss journey. "This was an oversight on our part and we sincerely apologize for any offense this may have caused to our customers, as this was not our intention in any way,” Forever 21 stated. So Forever 21 was forced to apologize for including a free sample with their orders. That's the outrage culture we live in right now.
