Dov Charney is the infamous ex American Apparel. He filed for bankruptcy in 2022, eight years after he was fired from American Apparel over alleged misconduct related to his treatment of women at the firm. He still owes $20 million to New York-based hedge fund Standard General.
Jon Rafman, I told you about in the last few weeks. An artist, Rafman had his art shows in New York cancelled over accusations of sexual misconduct.
These are the guys Kanye West considers his best (Jewish) friends, along with actor Jonah Hill. On Instagram West says these are the 3 people who inspired his so-called apology, which he posted a few weeks in Hebrew that looked like it was written in AI.
There were reports that Charney, who was drummed out of the clothing business, was working for or with West in his Yeezy line. “Dov is our family, I stand by my Jewish friend.”
To say West is disingenuous is an understatement. Let’s forget the lyrics to his new song, “Vultures.”
West is an antisemite who’s hooked up with the worst people imaginable as shields.
Charney is a poor choice, certainly. He’s been sued several times over the last 20 years for sexual harassment by employees. He’s said numerous times that he sees no problem with sexually pursuing his employees, down to the age of 17. He’s now 55.
West is currently having a fire sale on his yeezy.com website — 20 bucks for shoe socks, workout pants, and t shirts.
He’s also getting surly about posts with pictures of his wife naked. See below.
