Ralph Lauren Fired Model Filippa Hamilton for Being Too FAT

 Phillipa was so fat
they had to Photoshop her
body a little for this ad.

This has been a rough week for those of us who are a bit, um, sensitive about weight issues. 

Seems RALPH LAUREN fired Phillipa Hamilton for "not being able to fit into his clothes". Ms. Hamilton appeared on The Today Show this morning and made this announcement. By the way, she is 5'10" and 120 lbs.

Phillipa Hamilton's photo above was brought to our attention a few days ago when someone blew the whistle about the horrible Photoshop job that was done...her HEAD is bigger than her HIPS. (RALPH LAUREN is every BIT as demented as KARL LAGERFELD.)

via New York Daily News:

Polo Ralph Lauren said in a statement Tuesday night that Filippa is a "beautiful and healthy" woman but their relationship ended "as a result of her inability to meet the obligations under her contract with us.

In the same piece, reported by Carrie Melago, her lawyer says that he fears Ralph Lauren's treatment of Hamilton "will be extremely damaging to her."

Yep. I'm having trouble "meeting the obligations" to fit in all of the goddamned size 2's in my closet that are left over from my non-eating days. 

How do you guys really feel about this? Will there ever be a backlash or will we just continue to be indirectly abused about our weight? I'm angry, sad...and feeling guilty for eating fried chicken.

What the hell?
