Lululemon founder Chip Wilson resigns one month after controversial comments

Chip Wilson, the Vancouver billionaire founder of Lululemon Athletica who sparked customer outrage last month when he suggested that the retailer’s popular yoga pants aren’t appropriate for women without a thigh gap, is resigning as chairman of the board.
Michael Casey, lead director of the board will take his place once Wilson steps down next year, the company said in a statement on Tuesday. The upscale yoga chain also named Laurent Potdevin as chief executive officer.
