Salon magazine reported that controversial founder and CEO of American Apparel, Dov Charney, was ousted as CEO by the Board of Directors due to sexual misconduct. Mr Charney has withstood previous sexual harassment charges over the past decade, however, new information has moved the Board to act, and on Wednesday, June 18, 2014, made it official that Dov Charney was no longer to be the CEO of American Apparel. American Apparel is a company which makes all of their clothing in Los Angeles with numerous stores across the United States and in several other countries. their claim to fame is all of their clothing is Made in the United States and their secondary claim to fame is their controversial internet advertising which often included topless women and occasional bare derrieres. Dov Charney was definitely a capitalist, really didn’t believe in Made in America, and was hardly an icon that people could follow. So, we shall see what will happen with a Dov Charney-less American Apparel. We do hope they survive, as they do supply many types of clothing made in the United States that no one makes any more.
