Dov Charney on SNL

Dov Charney in manties

Anyone that would pose for this photo is an easy target for Saturday Night Live. Fred Armisen recently portrayed American Apparel CEO, Dov Charney, clad in green manties (man panties).

American Apparel just announced the creation of 2,500 jobs. That’s quite a feat on it’s own in this economy, but in the garment industry it is unheard of.

I mention American Apparel in WAIW? as an option for engaged consumers to consider. I also mention that Charney is quite a controversial figure. This poses an ethical conundrum for engaged consumers who are disgusted by Charney’s shenanigans. Beth Myers, Executive Director, of STITCH is wrestling with her decision to support American Apparel. She writes about it on the Labor Rights Blog.


I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and interesting,
and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.

The problem is something too few folks are speaking intelligently
about. I am very happy that I found this in my search for something concerning this.

Let your voice be heard!
