Lululemon Co-Founder Out After “Women's Bodies” Remark

Lululemon's co-founder has stepped down as chairman of the company, according to the "Today" show. Lululemon announced late Monday that Chip Wilson, who recently apologized for comments he made about how "some women's bodies just don't actually work" for his company's yoga pants, has been replaced by Michael Casey as the new chairman of the board. Wilson apologized earlier this fall in a YouTube video for the comments he made on Bloomberg TV about a batch of too-sheer yoga pants. Some customers complained that his apology did not go far enough and called on Lululemon to start making yoga clothes in larger sizes.
