Should Hudson Bay Co. Sell This 'Nothing Tastes As Good As Skinny Feels' T-Shirt?

June 27, 2014 by Justine Schwartz

Graphic tees are very much “a thing” right now (you can’t swing a PS1 in a crowded department store without hitting at least 5 of them), and while the majority of them are just cutesy and in good fun (if you don’t know what yours means, click here), Fashionista just caught wind of 1 graphic tee that isn’t winning over the masses: Christopher Lee Sauvé’s “Nothing Tastes As Good As Thin Feels” t-shirt (above). The phrase, which is of course a famous Kate Moss quote, was so offensive to Hudson’s Bay Company customers, that HBC has decided to pull it from shelves. Fashionista writes, “An image of the Kate Moss tee at a HBC store started spreading like wildfire on Twitter with the hashtag #NotBuyingIt, and shoppers voiced concern that the shirt was pro-anorexia and promoting eating disorders.”

I am not easily offended by these types of things (people should be able to buy and wear what they want–generally), so I don’t see what the big deal is. It can be argued that the fashion industry as a whole promotes negative body image–so why single out 1 T-shirt? Especially in this day and age of thigh gaps and Pinterest thinspo and size 2 Miss USA contestants being called plus size? At least this t-shirt is cheeky about the whole thing and is clearly not meant to be taken seriously. Right?
