    How is the pay differential between genders even legal?

    There's never an inappropriate moment for pastry.

    This is just plain stupid.I understand that they are very careful with what they eat during certain time before the shooting but how was a croissant going to make him fat right in the moment he was eating it?It's really not a decent excuse.This model could read the contract and see if it this thing was stipulated in his contract.If it wasn't,he could take legal actions.On the other hand, his behaviour doesn't show much professionalism.

    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!
