Shut up Karl by Margaret Cho

Happy Friday Guys!

Instead of the usual FSF, I wanted to share something I read today that impacted me greatly.

Recently, designer Karl Lagerfeld has come under fire for calling singer Adele “fat”.  He has since apologized, and alleges that his quote was taken out of context.  Whether that’s true or not, we can all agree that he could have never anticipated the backlash that has come his way in the last few days.

Out of all the responses I’ve read, including one from Adele herself, nothing has come close to summarizing, with an anger and a furious sentiment and passion unlike anything I have ever read, what Margaret Cho has written.  She has laid it all out for Mr. Lagerfeld.  It is a heartbreaking and reflective article, from our point of view, from one of our own.

It’s an incredible piece and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
