Video: Ellen DeGeneres Lashes Out Against Abercrombie & Fitch!

We've got three words for Ellen Degeneres: You go girl!

In a preview clip from Monday's "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," the talk show host addresses Abercrombie & Fitch's CEO's comments regarding their decision to not sell plus size clothing.

The talk show host makes some valid points -- for example, when did anything over a size 10 become "plus size," and why is their even a size 00? Isn't that promoting the wrong message for young girls?

Check out the clip below to see Ellen give it to Abercrombie's CEO:



After sharing some choice words about the company's policy, Ellen ends her monologue with an important message:

"I know a lot of kids watch this show, so I wanna say one more thing to you all. What you look like on the outside is not what makes you cool. At all. I mean, I had a mullet and I wore parachute pants for a long, long time. And I’m doing O.K."

Amen to that!

On Thursday, Ambercombie's CEO made another statement (just short of an apology) to clairfy the company's stance: "I sincerely regret that my choice of words was interpreted in a manner that has caused offense," he said. "We are completely opposed to any discrimination, bullying, derogatory characterizations or other anti-social behavior based on race, gender, body type or other individual characteristics."
