American Apparel Outlines Graphic Allegations Against Founder Dov Charney in Recent Court Filings
After getting fired from American Apparel in December for “alleged misconduct and violations of company policy,” former CEO and founder Dov Charney is not going down without a fight. The company is now responding to a recent slew of defamations lawsuits he’s filed against it, outlining some pretty graphic allegations in recent court filings.
American Apparel’s new leadership is trying to push back against defamation lawsuits Charney filed both in May and then last week, reports the Los Angeles Times, by filing court documents that detail a veritable laundry list of alleged shady practices by the former CEO.
Among the allegations included in the anti-SLAPP motion filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, as cited by the LAT:
…Charney told accounting employees that they were “Filipino pigs … with your faces in the trough”; mimed holding a shotgun to an employee’s forehead; stored footage on company equipment of himself having sex with models and employees; and sent sexually graphic messages to employees. The filing also alleged Charney tried to destroy the evidence, telling employees to delete “naughty” messages.
