Sports Illustrated cover girl Chrissy Teigen was once fired from a Forever 21 shoot for being too fat. Teigen told DuJour.com in a video interview that her modeling agency called and told her to leave the set in the middle of prepping for the shoot:

"I actually was fired from a job. Forever 21. They booked me directly when I was much younger. I showed up on set and they asked me if they could take a photo and they shoot that photo off to my agency who then calls me as I'm sitting in the makeup chair and they say, 'You need to leave right now. They just said that you are fat and you need to get your measurements taken.' And I hate you, Forever 21. I hate you so much. Honestly, you're the worst."
And that's all that there's to be said about that.
