‘It is not entirely our job to make you feel good about yourself.’
Speaking to News.com.au, Georgia said: ‘Honestly, I was shocked. I asked a simple question and his words made me feel like I was in high school again.
She added: ‘All I’m doing is existing as a fat person and asking to be respected as a human being.’
Georgia went to say that she in fact does feel good about herself and loves her body - despite Kmart’s assumption that she didn’t.
‘It’s so insulting I can say something about there being a limited range for plus-sized people, and they acquaint that with feeling bad about my body, which isn’t the case at all,’ she told News.
Georgia was inundated with support on social media, with many voicing their disgust at Kmart for their cruel response.
Now a Kmart spokesperson has issued another statement to News.com.au on the incident, finally apologising for the hurtful comments.
‘We are truly sorry for these comments and have spoken directly to this customer to apologise,’ the statement reads. ‘This does not reflect Kmart’s views at all. We want every customer that interacts with Kmart to have a pleasurable shopping experience, and on this occasion, we have not lived up to this commitment.’
