Remember when Karl Lagerfeld used to be fat? Well now that he dropped some weight he can’t help calling other people fat, and he’s finally being called out for it. A French feminist group is filing a lawsuit against him, saying that he is discriminating against curvy women. The group’s name means “Beautiful, Round, Sexy and OK With It,” and they’re trying to stop famous people from giving young girls a reason to be insecure.

While the lawsuit is just against Lagerfeld, it could have scare tactic for the rest of the industry. Body issues aren’t just in fashion consumers, models feel them too. Betty Aubriere, the group’s president, told AFP, “Today it’s him who insults us and tomorrow who will it be?” We’re wondering if Adele has heard the news? Calling her fat is definitely Lagerfeld’s most famous insult. Do you think this lawsuit will make a difference? Let us know in the comment section below!
