Business: Body-Shaming Giant Repeals Hiring Policy

In a world where celebrities and internet superstars are regularly shamed when making off-hand remarks that objectify people, body-shaming giant Abercrombie & Fitch is finally changing its hiring practices and reducing its topless sales staff.

According to Washington Post and the NY Post, this past Friday, A&F is only just tuning their policies to focus more on "strong work ethic" than "sexualized marketing."

It's about time.

Shaming for those who make offhand remarks, either internationally or otherwise, is sharp and swift on the Internet, but A&F has been defying that trend for years.
