The store giant announced late Sunday that it would draw a line of porcelain slabs that spoke for smaller portion sizes following a wave of criticism that began – and ended – on Twitter.
The decision came in response to a customer's tweet that criticized the disc's message on Sunday night.
$ 9.50 plates, designed by a company called Pourtions, have three circles in increasing size where one can place the food. The circles are labeled "skinny jeans," "favorite jeans" and "mom jeans".
She tweeted a picture and asked, "How can I get these plates from Macy's banned in all 50 states?"
That was all it would take.
Tweeten spread. The rebellion grew. And within hours, Macy's replied, "Hi, Alie – we appreciate you sharing this with us and agreeing that we missed the mark on this product. It will be removed from any STORY on Macy & # 39; 39; s locations. "
And that was it.
Macy's said to CNN on Monday, "We apologize to our customers for missing the mark on this product. After reviewing the complaint, we quickly removed the discs, which were only in our STORY at Macy & # 39 ; s location on Herald Square. "  Ward said Monday afternoon that she did not intend the record gate to be national news: "I just saw, rolled my eyes, became sad for the people it would affect and used my voice on a public platform," she explained, and called the record's message "a pointless joke with a cheap stamp line."
She added that it was not her tweet that made them, but "a chorus from others who recognized that it was ignorant and in bad taste."  Pourtions & # 39; "Mom Jeans" plates can still be purchased on the site.
