#N12BX: Body shaming

Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

Two big retail stores are in hot water.

Macy's and Forever 21 are being accused of body shaming.

Macy's has pulled a line of porcelain plates after a joke seemed to negatively target plus-sized women.

The plate showed the portion sizes for "skinny jeans," "favorite jeans" and "mom jeans." Macy's admitted that it missed the mark.

Forever 21 is also feeling the heat after some costumers say they received Atkins bars with their plus-size purchases.

Forever 21 says the diet bars were included in all online orders. The company apologized and removed the samples.

Did you find these actions offensive?
