Meg here! I know Dov Charney been the subject of every weird pervy story in fashion but have you heard the latest? I think it is hysterical coming from this troll. Anyhow, here are snippets from Gawker
“Dov usually gets on the conference calls and talks to people, but one week, he went on a huge tirade and made stores that weren’t doing well send in group photos. Why, you ask? He made store managers across the country take group photos of their employees so that he could personally judge people based on looks. He is tightening the AA ‘aesthetic,’ and anyone that he deems not good-looking enough to work there, is encouraged to be fired. This is blatant discrimination based on looks. Dov personally judged each person in group photos that were sent in, and if you weren’t to his liking, then boy… watch out. The comments that he made were raging from childish ones to insulting ones. Managers that don’t comply with these new standards are afraid of losing their jobs. Employees who aren’t up to Dov’s “look” and whose work ethic is “just ok” are being targeted and scrutinized and the minute they make small mistakes, they are being fired. But it’s only because Dov wants to weed out the “ugly people.” It’s ironic that he would rather have gorgeous slackers who don’t move the product [or lift a finger] working there than normal looking people who are really aren’t that bad looking, but are A+ sellers and great at customer service.”
Wow! Don’t have a bad hair day, get bloated or have your skin breakout if Dov is around. I mean, you need your job right? Maybe Dov could promote www.megsmakeup.com to his employess that need some makeup tips? With the kind of pressure he’s putting on them we’d see our readership soar.
What a complete scumbag.
Anyhow, I’m not going to be shopping at AA anymore and its not because of the looks of the salespeople.
What do you ladies think? Have you ever felt discriminated over your appearance?
