Dov Charney, I don’t even know what your ads are supposed to sell anymore. Body issues? Sexual Harassment? Tampon Tea? (Hah! That was for you, Uncle Terry). I do however, know that periodically I am walking through SoHo on Sunday mornings all sleepy with my coffee in hand and then, boom, pudenda meets leggings. I do not hate pudenda. I do not hate leggings. I do hate these ads because they seem unecessary and unartistic and exploitative (because the models don’t get paid enough, not because they’re always half naked) and they suck. They just suck. Below, basically the reasons I treat people who proudly report they are wearing American Apparel exactly the way I’d treat someone who proudly announced that they were wearing Nazi apparel.
