it said he ate it at the wrong moment which is understandable in a professional setting.

(not referring to this guy) but i've seen a few male models who like to goof around and it's cute but it gets to be too much sometimes.. i've been turned off by so many because of how they act not matter how good looking they are.

anyways, i wonder if the agency will still keep him.

I think "wrong moment" is the only way they can spin it so that it won't seem like the devil ate their souls & that now their shallow lives are dedicated to his bidding.

This is absolutely outrageous. Their eating is "monitored" carefully? What the hell kind of world is this? Can we find these people and ship them to Haiti or Kandahar or Fallujah for some much needed PERSPECTIVE?

And then can we just keep them there forever?

That is the most ridiculous thing ive ever heard.
Although, i could undserstand if A&F asked him to stop eating, and he argued and refused while shooting. something like that.
But if it's just because he wanted to eat a croissant, then let him eat the goddam croisant!

^OMG yes

He was fired BECAUSE he ate a croissant, not because of WHEN he did it. Stop making ridiculous excuses, it's just embarrassing.

How funny if his contract stipulated the eating of a croissant was subject to instant dismissal.


In reality though they probably got angry at him for eating something so delicious infront of the rest of the starving fashion people or when he was supposed to be doing some work, told him to stop, he got mouthy and then an argument ensured. Otherwise it is just an example of how extremely out of touch the fashion industry really is.

Geez its just a croissant

I've been craving croissants ever since I read Poly claimed to eat them for breakfast. As if

No wonder I hate that store. Not that I've ever been in one. I don't like the clothes and the scent pouring out of it repels me.

Wait...This is just fascinating. Can you expand on this?

First, what were you eating that was considered too much? Second, what did it have to do with your job? Were you going into overtime on your break or was it because they thought you might God forbid bloat a little and scare people away from their world class goods?
