A sheer scandal may have sent one Lululemon executive packing.
The sportswear company’s Chief Product Officer Sheree Waterson is leaving the company only weeks after it had to recall 17% of its pants because customers found them to be to see-through when they were in certain positions. In addition to exposing many women’s skivvies, it also was a huge embarrassment for the a which has faced numerous quality issues in the past year.
The company’s stock fell 1.2% on Wednesday following the news.
Some reaction from the Twittersphere (where everyone used jokes about “sheerness” and “transparency” obviously):
