Aguilera kicked off her “Liberation Tour” on Sept. 25 in Hollywood, Fla., which is where a fan took a picture of her merchandise rack and shared it on Twitter.
The photo sparked outrage among Twitter users, who immediately slammed the singer after it appeared bigger items from her collection were being sold for $5 dollars more — “Add $5 for all XXL and XXXL,” the signs in the picture read.
“Is Christina really charging extra for XXL and XXXL sized merchandise? Brutal,” one Twitter user wrote.
Even celebrity blogger Perez Hilton joined in on the merchandise controversy in a tweet, saying “…a lot of people are pissed at @Xtina for charging plus-sized fans more for merch. I’m one of those upset! Are U? ”
But some fans defended the “Fighter” singer. One user wrote, “I can assure you she doesnt set nor know the prices of her tour merch. Chill gurl! She’s an advocate of self love and would never discriminate against anyone.”
Following the controversy, Live Nation, the company handling all of Aguilera’s tour merchandise sales, released a statement to Newsweek, which reps for the singer referred Fox News to.
