Whoa. Was Lilly Pulitzer Just Caught Fat-Shaming?

After the mega success of Lilly Pulitzer for Target (everything sold out within minutes!), The Cut decided to send a photographer to the preppy brand’s headquarters. Turns out, fat-shaming cartoons are hanging on the fridge at the Pennsylvania offices:


As Jezebel points out, the top cartoon says, “Fat, White and Hideous: You Should Probably Just Kill Yourself.”

The slideshow from The Cut notes, “This image shows the personal illustrations of an employee not pictured in this story.”

Lilly has also released a statement saying, “These illustrations were the work of one individual and were posted in her personal work area. While we are an employer that does encourage people to decorate their own space, we are a female-dominated company and these images do not reflect our values. We apologize for any harm this may have caused.”

What do you guys think? Is LP just trying to cover-up their huge mistake?
