American Apparel CEO Likes Female Masturbation, Dislikes Lawsuits

American Apparel Ad in the UK

Today I was reading my favorite measure of pop culture and news when I came across an item that an American Apparel employee was suing its CEO Dov Charney because apparently he wanted her to masturbate in front of her. According to TMZ, not only was the masturbation not part of the job requirement, but that he was a monster boss and went nuts on her! Oh no! But if you’re working for a company that literally makes its ads look like soft porn, wouldn’t you have seen this coming?

Apparently, Mr. Charney has had a history of being perverted and acting in a way that makes both male and female employees uncomfortable. A much more reliable source reported back in January that Mr. Charney repeatedly demonstrated lewd behavior, such as attending meetings routinely in his underwear (or less), using sexually explicit language, and “behaving in sexually inappropriate ways”. Furthermore, he has been sued multiple times on cases of sexual harassment and has even invited some of the employees to simulate oral sex in front of them. His defense?

“I manage 7,000 employees in 14 countries… . Could I have done all this where I’m inappropriate all the time? Where I’m running around in my underwear all the time?”

Apparently you found time to piss off some wanna-be models while you pranced around in your underwear like Zoolander. Still, with all of his antics, misbehavior, and creepiness, I firmly believe that this guy is waaay creepier and probably more of a perv. I guess the moral of the story is that when you decide to voluntarily work for a company that blurs the line between porn and retail, you should expect to be treated like a piece of meat. Mr. Charney may be perverted and overly sexual, but shouldn’t you see that coming in? And as you know, it could always be worse.
