Marie Claire Protested

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Our sister site points us towards photos from Friday night's Big Fat Kiss-In outside the offices of Marie Claire. Kissers of all sizes showed some love as a way to protest a recent fat-phobic post by a blogger for the magazine. According to the Gloss, Marie Claire has issued a statement distancing themselves from the post: "The opinion was that of a blogger, not the magazine. She posted an apology the same day. We consider this matter closed." [Racked National; The Gloss]
