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!!!
Took them long enough!
American Apparel CEO Dov Charney has been hit with sexual harassment claims and lawsuits for years now, but the company's board has always backed him up. Guess they ran out of excuses this time!
According to a press release distributed yesterday, the board has voted to terminate Charney's role as both chairman and CEO, citing "alleged misconduct" as the cause.
What a scrumptious summer treat!
Galore magazine took Naya Rivera and put her in barely-there outfits for the world's visual pleasure, and we can't thank them enough!
We know we'll be seeing a lot of her at the beach this summer, and she was kind enough to give some advice for everyone who'll be hitting the sand to soak up the sun! She said:
Where’s her massive baby bump??
So either this photo shoot happened longgg before the actress was showing, or there is way too much photoshop going on here. We're guessing the former reason is correct, but doesn't that mean the pics were taken almost a full nine months ago?? They definitely wouldn't be recent!
Regardless, Jason Sudeikis’ lady is a breath of fresh air posing in lovely summery ensems for the mag — she looks beach-ready in a M Patmos bodysuit paired with a Edith A. Miller skirt, goes casual in an American Apparel tank, and is simply stunning in a beige Max Mara poncho.
We just wish the pics weren't so out of date!!
Check 'em out (below)!

In the latest chapter of “What Has American Apparel Done Now”, many customers are angered at the way the brand is showcasing miniskirts. Multiple photos seem to be more focused on the amount of ass that will show when bent over than the actual skirts!!
In light of the recent Terry Richardson drama, this obviously brings into question the ethics of American Apparel photographers. But even more worrisome is that the brand apparently thinks upskirt photos will get customers to buy clothing!
People have called the images everything from “perverted” to “creepy” to “sexist”. And since the pics do a poor job of advertising what the skirt looks like, many are trying to decipher what point they ARE trying to get across.
Are they telling young girls to wear skirts short enough that their vaginal regions show at the slightest breeze? Is AA slowly but surely moving out of the retail business and into the softcore porn business? Or is this just their way of grabbing people’s attention?
We’re just not sure their strategy is helping them sell products. But take a look at the uncensored photo …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
