And, so the sweatshop scandal involving Alexander Wang continues, this time with the designer releasing a statement, refuting the allegations (yet again).
Wang offers a reason as to why the plaintiff, Wenyu Lu, would falsely accuse him stating the former employee was fired for "bullying" his co-workers.
The designer adds:
"The claims regarding sweatshop conditions are completely untrue. In reality, this case was filed by an individual who was let go by the company as a result of serious harassment issues. We stand by our decision to promote a safe workplace environment for all employees regardless of false claims that may be waged against us in retaliation."
Meanwhile, as we have mentioned, the case has since been moved to federal court. The plaintiffs have asked Federal Judge Harold Baer to give the suit class-action status, which REALLY isn't good news for Wang.
It's getting serious now…
But, the real question is which side to believe?
