Chris Carmack plays a wild, outspoken country singer on the hit TV show "Nashville" and it turns out, he's just as opnionated as his TV alter ego.

The former "The O.C." star took to Twitter over the weekend blasting Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries for excluding women's sizes XL and XXL in the retailer's stores.

A fan of Carmack's tweeted a photo of a quote by Jeffries which said:

“In every school there are the cool and popular kids, and then there are the not-so-cool kids. We go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don’t belong [in our clothes], and they can’t belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely."

To which the 32-year-old actor replied,

"@Born2love2sing That's a terrible example to set. If I had any of their clothes I'd throw them away.
#meanpeoplesuck."

But is Chris biting the hand that feeds him?

It turns out the chiseled hunk got his start in the entertainment industry by starring in an Abercrombie & Fitch ad campaign in 2000, which was shot by famed fashion photographer Bruce Weber. (Check out some pics from the Back to School print ads here.)

This gig led to other modeling opportunities with Guess, Target and Cosmo Girl until he got his big break as the mouthy rich teen Luke Ward in the hit soap "The O.C." in 2003.

So will Carmack's outspokenness lead to a Twitter war with his former boss? Probably not, but we're guessing his current "Nashville" employers are keeping an eye on his social media account, just in case the actor feels like going on a rant.
