American Apparel takes out restraining order on former CEO Dov Charney
American Apparel has taken out a restraining order on its former chief executive Dov Charney. Charney has also been restrained from saying anything negative about American Apparel to the press or any other third party. In 2014, the company fired Charney, who has been described by Jordan Weissmann of Slate as:
...the man who sold fashion-forward shoppers on pricey, made-in-the-U.S.A. basics using reliably porny ads, who was known to traipse around his company’s offices in his underwear, who famously pleasured himself in front of a female magazine reporter, who told said reporter, “I'm not saying I want to screw all the girls at work ... but if I fall in love at work it's going to be beautiful and sexual,” who perhaps unsurprisingly faced sexual harassment allegations from former employees, and who eventually saw his brainchild reduced to a penny stock as it bled money and sales while piling on debt.
