Macy’s came under fire over the weekend after podcast and Tv host Alie Ward called the department store chain for carrying plates with demeaning messages about portion control.

The stir began Sunday afternoon when Ward tweeted a picture of two of the plates from the Pourtions collecting at Macy’s.” How can I get these plates from @Macys banned in all 50 states ,” Ward wrote.

One plate had three circles, the smallest labeled” skinny jeans ,” the middle labeled” favorite jeans ,” and the largest labeled” mama jeans .” The second plate in the picture had only two circles, “foodie” and “food coma.”

Many people in the replies , was indicated that the size of the” skinny jeans” circle was too small to fit recommended sections for a full meal, accused Macy’s of promoting anorexia and disordered eating.

Others joked about how the proportions on the plate simply don’t make sense. Just because something is taking up less physical space doesn’t mean it has fewer calories or is healthier.

The replies were also full of people telling Ward that the plates were” simply a joke ,” or stimulating body-shaming remarks about her and anyone who felt the plates could be problematic.
