The Hudson’s Bay Co. is pulling a T-shirt from its stores after a massive backlash unfolded on social media. The T-shirt bears the infamous quote of Kate Moss, “Nothing Tastes As Good As Skinny Feels.” The quote is shown inside a mock-up of a nutrition label with the calorie count listed as zero.

After igniting heated criticism online, The Bay tweeted that the T-shirt will be removed from stores and online immediately. They later confirmed the garment’s removal in an official statement to The Canadian Press yesterday.
The Canadian-born designer of the T-shirt, Christopher Lee Sauve, issued his own statement in wake of the controversy. Sauve said allegations that the shirt is celebrating the severity of eating disorders “is just not the case.” Sauve said that as an artist, he got his start mocking the fashion industry. While he said it’s an industry he’s long followed and admired, it’s also one that “begs to be mocked.”
