The petition was created by Benjamin O'Keefe, 18, of Orlando, Fla., who describes himself as an actor, filmmaker and activist.

O'Keefe, along with advocates from the National Eating Disorder Association met with company executives at Abercrombie's headquarters in New Albany, Ohio on Tuesday to deliver the signatures and to discuss the online consumer outrage sparked by the CEO's controversial comments.
