The call to action came in a tip two days ago.
"Deal Divas alum Emily Nipps recommends one of us react to these HORRIFIC jeans from American Apparel 'with the appropriate tone of outrage and confusion,'" Deal Diva Katie wrote to us in an email blast.

I tried. Here's my conversation with Katie after she sent me a link (via instant message):
Me: OMG those jeans.
i srsly just gasped. out loud
i just cant
Katie: high waisted jeans can be cute, but these are such an abomination. tina fey's mom jeans commercial needs to be part of this takedown
Me: this is an abomination and we must not stand for it
