  1. bunch of fatty losers complaint about forever 21 , what a joke.
    come on , go fcking get some exercise then reduce the weight,
    dont fcking just sit there and keyboard fighting what forever 21 did to you,
    forever 21 didnt do anything wrong .

  2. They should have had the option to decide. Like would you be interested in a free diet bar? That’s just rude sorry and yes it’s free food and we all love free food but it can be offensive to some people..

  3. I have a Fabletics subscription (and I’m plus size) and they send me free “healthy alternative” candy in my orders all the time. I always get those Justin Nut Butter Cups with my leggings or bras and they’re SO GOOD! I really don’t see how this is any different. I wouldn’t be offended if any free food came as advertisements! But then again, it takes a special kind of person to actively shop at Forever 21….

  4. I would boycott them if they had sent them only to plus size customers but since they sent it to everyone I don't really see the issue. They have sent freebies out before :/

  5. I’m a size 2 and I got an Atkins bar… if it was only with plus sized orders I’d understand the anger. Still, it was delicious and I ate it up!

  6. I ordered small size clothes and it came with a lemon Atkins bar, it was actually delicious. Lol people get too offended and are overly sensitive these days.🙄

  7. I'm on a modified atkins diet and I personally love their bars and shakes. They keep my epileptic seizures in check.

  8. I can understand why people freaked out about this, but I feel like it was just a huge misunderstanding that was blown out of proportion

  9. What is forever 21 trying to say to these people oh I don’t know that they’re very generous to be doing that and food last time I checked costs money for them to pop in a free bar of food like that really is a kind thing for someone to do I simply wouldn’t get offended by it I’d actually thank them.
