The women’s hoodie, which describes anorexia as "like bulimia, except with self control", has been heavily criticised and Amazon urged to remove it from their website.
Anorexia sufferer Beth Grant, speaking on the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire show, said the hoodie “could be extremely damaging to anyone suffering with either bulimia or anorexia."
She said: "I think it could damage their mental health even further and cause them to potentially harm their life."*shrugs* I don't seel that would be much of a loss, frankly.
But maybe she's got a point?
The hoodie, which is from a third party seller, is not available to buy from the company's UK website and cannot be shipped to the UK.Hmmm.... Doesn't that make a bit of a difference, then?
Reader, of course it doesn't.
However Ms Grant said this would make little difference to those with anorexia or bulimia.
She added: "You can still see it on the internet. It can still harm them, even if they're not wearing it.
"I think they should issue a statement saying it is 'so sorry it's on our website'."I think you should sod off and eat a sandwich, love. Your 5 minutes of fame are up.
Critics expressed their outrage on the Amazon sellers page.
One person commented: “So disgusting. There is a special place in hell for people like you who profit off of young girls dying of eating disorders.”Is it next to the one for people who use 'off of' to mean 'off'...?
