Lululemon (LULU) founder Chip Wilson was forced to apologize on Friday after he essentially called a segment of his customers too fat for the brand. "Some women's bodies just don't actually work" for the company's $100 yoga pants, he said during a Bloomberg TV interview. Later Wilson said that he was "sad for the repercussions" of his actions. The remarks certainly won't help the brand recover from its see-through-pants debacle and subsequent stock plunge from earlier this year.
