American Apparel Lays of Ugly People

Dov Charney, the creepy CEO of American Apparel is making trouble once again, or should I say potential lawsuits.  In the past, Charney has had multiple sexual harrassment lawsuits filed against him.  He admits that he strongly encourages his employees to dress and act sexy and has no problem sleeping with anyone who is stuipid enough to jump in his bed.  The list contains both employees and aquaintances. 

Gawker.com has printed an email from a “pissed-off”  American Apparel store manager.   According to the tipster, American Apparel‘s perverted madman  is demanding the firing of employees he deems unattractive and thus detrimental to the “AA aesthetic,” as he feels they may be hurting his bottom line.

Our company holds weekly conference calls that every store manager world/nation wide are required to tune into. We discuss sales, which stores need displays, which items are doing well, etc.

Summer is supposed to be a great sales season for AA. Needless to say, with the state of the economy, sales haven’t been going so well. Dov usually gets on the conference calls and talks to people, but one week, he went on a huge tirade and made stores that weren’t doing well send in group photos. Why, you ask? He made store managers across the country take group photos of their employees so that he could personally judge people based on looks. He is tightening the AA ‘aesthetic,’ and anyone that he deems not good-looking enough to work there, is encouraged to be fired. This is blatant discrimination based on looks.

Dov personally judged each person in group photos that were sent in, and if you weren’t to his liking, then boy… watch out. The comments that he made were raging from childish ones to insulting ones. Managers that don’t comply with these new standards are afraid of losing their jobs. Employees who aren’t up to Dov’s “look” and whose work ethic is “just ok” are being targeted and scrutinized and the minute they make small mistakes, they are being fired. But it’s only because Dov wants to weed out the “ugly people.” It’s ironic that he would rather have gorgeous slackers who don’t move the product [or lift a finger] working there than normal looking people who are really aren’t that bad looking, but are A+ sellers and great at customer service. The real irony here is that he is no [looker], himself. He’s asking for a class-action lawsuit and i hope that when it rains, it rains hard. Worst place to work, ever. This is happening at many stores across the country.

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!

Let the lawsuits begin!
