Forever21 Apologises For Sending “Free” Diet Bars In Customers Packages

Forever21 is in some serious heat after the fashion brand got called out for sending Atkins diet bars to its customers. Get this, the diet bars were shipped together along with orders of plus-sized clothing. Whuttt?

If you didn’t know, Atkin bars are low-carb snacks for weight loss. Supposed you were happy to finally get your shopping items from Forever 21’s website only to find a diet snack in your package. Bummer!

Well, you can only imagine what the shoppers felt.

Right, we’ve been fighting against “fatphobic” with body positivism for a very long, long time. It’s 2019, why are we taking a step back for making women feel ashamed of their bodies?

Although, there were some who felt it was okay. After all, it’s FREE.

And says it was all in the name of ‘healthy lifestyle’.

However, Forever21 has since issued a statement on Twitter and noted that the bars were “free tests products”.

“From time to time, Forever 21 surprises our customers with free test products from third parties in their e-commerce orders,” the company stated.

“The freebie items in question were included in all online orders, across all sizes and categories, for a limited time and have since been removed. This was an oversight on our part and we sincerely apologize for any offense this may have caused to our customers, as this was not our intention in any way.”

Even after the apology statement, some were still unhappy and shocked to learn of Forever21’s new diet product. What do you think about Forever21’s Atkins bar gesture?
