A couple of months ago, American Eagle Outfitters had customers and critics thinking they decided to show more of variety in their model selection by showing men of all shapes and curves modeling their new vibrant underwear. Sadly this wonderful idea was an April Fool's joke that enraged so many people and their reasons for the outrage were, and still are, valid.
People, including the bear community, were so happy to see bigger men finally included in a mogul fashion store like American Eagle and to see that it was a joke was not cute at all. But their message of male body positivity reigns true. As men of the plump nature, we don't have too many outlets telling us that we should embrace our bodies and a six pack is not everyone's symbol of beauty.
Which brings us to the video included in this post, which introduces us to a black bear named Kelvin, a fashion blogger and a butt selfie professional, who is taking that message to heart.
