Jimmy Kimmel recruited the plus-sized actor Jim O'Heir to go shopping at the clothing chain following the company CEO's controversial remarks this week
"Parks and Recreation" star Jim O'Heir has found a solution for any plus-sized Abercrombie & Fitch shoppers. Make an XL or XXL shirt yourself!
The actor, who plays Jerry Gergich on the NBC comedy series, went shopping at the clothing chain for a sketch on Thursday night's "Jimmy Kimmel Live." The skit was inspired by a 2006 interview with the company's CEO Mike Jeffries, which went viral recently.
"Candidly, we go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends," Jeffries told Salon. "A lot of people don't belong [in our clothes], and they can't belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely."
O'Heir, however, has found a way to belong. And in the process, actually made a new brand: "Abercrombercrombercrombie & Fitch."
