The Guardian published a disturbingly amusing article on American Apparel that begins with discussions of the founder Dov Charney and oral sex, masturbation, illegal immigrant labor, sexual harassment, socks worn in strange places, and boardroom underwear.
American Apparel has almost become a household name and one of the few remaining American made clothing companies. The company has been praised for great fashionable clothing and offering fair wages, healthcare, and free international phone calls during work hours. As with many companies in today’s economy they are facing lower sales and increased debt. American Apparel’s shares are at an all time low and the company is losing almost $30 million a year.
With the founder Dov Charney’s almost lunatic actions would it surprise you if American Apparel went bankrupt or will these antics just bring more press and sales? Seriously, this article has some hilarious quotes so go read it yourself and don’t forget to read some of the comments, those are quite amusing.
