Pepsi is promoting a “skinny” can for Fashion Week, a move that is sure to offend many women — especially when they read PepsiCo (PEP)’s press release. The statement suggests that there is a connection between beautiful, stylish, confident women and being tall and skinny:

Even though I think the skinny can looks lovely, this only proves the media is an ******* who wants everyone to have a low selfesteem, so they can make a few dollars.

All this will do is spark trouble against the thin vs. the CHUNK.

It's still bad for you!

Water with a twist of lemon or lime is still the best "skinny drink".

Come on, why is that offensive? Does everything have to be a big deal? I did a quick read through of some of the author's other articles and he seems to just like to stir things up, you gotta love the line "Got that, fat chicks?" lol. Anyway, I don't see why someone should be offended by this, it's really not that bad.

I never drink any soda like ever, I hate all of it, just tastes so bad to me.
