Earlier this week, the singer tweeted: “Made mistake of going 2 Fabletics.What a pain in the ass. Won’t even let u see anything till u give them ur 1st born!! Felt I Was Being Conned.”
The line, which runs as a subscription-based activewear line, has faced criticism from other shoppers for not being transparent about its subscription-like payment plan—AKA once you buy your first budget-friendly outfit, you’re billed $49.99 every month. While you can use that payment as credit on the site to keep buying more adorable looks, you can’t shop unless you’re a member and are paying that monthly fee.
However, Fabletics’ customer service does seem to be making a strong effort to address criticism, vowing to restructure their business model and even tweeting back at Cher: “We LOVE you @Cher! Please know our quiz is to personalize shopping and so we can eliminate waste by only creating clothing people want.”
Sounds like Cher’s about to get a big box of Fabletics goodies coming her way soon.
