American Apparel has been making a LOT of changes recently!
A month ago, news broke of them finally firing founder and CEO Dov Charney after years of battling sexual harassment claims against him — including one lawsuit accusing Dov of making an employee his sex slave.
Now they've also replaced four board members, and one of the replacements is a woman!! While that shouldn't be a big deal, it is; she's the first female to ever hold a board position for AA.
Her name is Colleen B. Brown, and she was previously employed as chief executive of media for Fisher Communications.
According to the founder of Standpoint Research, Ronnie Moas, Colleen was a smart move. He explained:
Solange Gets Lucky With A Mag Cover After Her Infamous Elevator Brawl! Think Her High Kicks Helped Boost Her Résumé??
Dressed in retro-inspired attire, the spunky singer leans casually against a bright blue wall wearing what should be winter attire. Yet somehow, she still manages to make her warm white sweatshirt and mint slacks look summery as ever!
But make no mistake — that fashionable effortlessness comes from a lot of practice. In the mag, Solange delves into her fashion past, explaining how her parents and sister influenced her style when she was young.
One moment she specifically recalled was when her father made her change for his company Christmas party:
American Apparel may have fired CEO Dov Charney for sexual misconduct, but according to the man himself, it's a really big MAY.
The creator of the brand has given his first post-termination interview, and he's using the strategy that cheaters have been employing since time immemorial: deny ’til you die.
As more light sheds on American Apparel’s controversial CEO Dov Charney’s termination, it seems he won’t be leaving without a fight!
According to his lawyer, Patricia Gliser, he is gearing up to sue the company for wrongful termination after the retailer’s board unanimously voted him out last week and then refused to meet with him again to discuss next steps for the company, which he founded in 1998.
Though American Apparel claims the firing was due to a misuse of company funds and alleged misconduct, Dov’s lawyer stated that most of the claims:
This man had many, many reasons to be ousted out of his company, but this was apparently the action that gave him the final boot from his job!
Suspended American Apparel CEO Dov Charney was finally fired by the American Apparel board specifically because of a 2011 case when a former employee named Irene Morales accused Charney of forcing her into "sex slavery"!!
Not only that but Charney also made one of his employees post nude photos of Morales onto a blog without either her knowledge or consent — a move that was illegal in SO many ways!
Here's what a source said
American Apparel's Freshly Fired CEO Caught Dancing Nude In Front Of Alleged Employees In Newly Released Video
Well, at least he was fired BEFORE this video leaked??
For those of you who haven't heard, American Apparel's extremely controversial CEO Dov Charney was FINALLY let go a few days ago — after YEARS of sexual harassment claims and even a sex slave lawsuit.
And before you argue that the allegations against him may have been blown up or exaggerated by the media, wait until you see THIS footage…
In it, Dov is dancing completely nude in front of two of his (alleged) employees while he asks for more girls over the phone. And while the ladies in question haven't fully been identified as AA vets, one source has come forward to say that they are either current or former employees of the brand, saying:
"I worked for AA years ago. That girl in the video used to be my boss. And the girl he's referring to, Daisy, also used to work with me. I think she still works for the co."
Yes, it all sounds pretty unbelievable, but seeing is believing, right?
So see the entire NSFW video for yourself …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
