Customers are upset and calling out Forever 21 after many of them received diet bars in their orders. According to the New York Post, the retailer allegedly sent Atkins low-carb lemon diets bars to its customers, specifically in the orders with the plus- size clothing in it.
Many customers took to Twitter to address the situation and immediately label the move as an example of fat-shaming. See posts below:
