Harry Styles Mistakenly Charges More For Plus-Sized Merch
Harry Styles fans weren’t exactly thrilled by the merchandise he’s selling at his first-ever solo tour. It’s not that they didn’t like the product, but some were a bit angry after noticing that plus-sized items were being sold for $5 more than the “regularly” sized items.
In case you missed it, at the tour’s kick off in San Francisco, one T-Shirt was seling for $40 in sizes extra small, small and medium, while large, extra large and XX-Large coast $45.
Many fans took to Twitter to voice their opposition to the pricing, especially since Harry promotes treating people with “kindness.” And apparently Harry was listening, because the singer and the merch company quickly fixed the problem. “There was a mistake in size pricing,” Live Nation Merchandising “Seventeen.” “Harry and his team were unaware and this has now been rectified.”
