Lane Bryant’s request for a conversation ended in a deluge of feedback, much of it negative.

On Tuesday, the retail company’s chief marketing officer, Brian Beitler, hosted an hour-long Twitter chat and asked users to tweet questions under the hashtag #AskLane Bryant.

ICYMI: @Refinery29 + our CMO Brian are hosting an #AskLaneBryant Twitter chat tomorrow at 1pm. (So get those questions prepped now!)

It didn’t take long for Twitter users to flood the hashtag with tough questions, snark and criticism:

Why don’ t you have pretty bras for really plus sized women? Or…bras for really plus sized women at all? #AskLaneBryant
