Toronto orchestra closed after fat-shaming singers

Recommended Posts

A Toronto orchestra has shut down after "fat-shaming" volunteer singers who wore body-hugging dresses.

The Sheraton Cadwell Orchestras asked women who were not "fit & slim" to use loose dresses that hide their "dietary indulgences".

Many singers who had performed with the symphony expressed disgust at the email.

The management has since apologised and resigned, telling singers the orchestra would no longer be funded.

The controversy began on Monday when singer Victoria Leone, 23, received an email from Sheraton Cadwell Orchestras that left her astonished.
