Progressive’ Shmatte King, Sweatshop Foe, Faces Workers’ Protests Over Harassment

Published August 05, 2005, issue of August 05, 2005.

We would like to correct an error that appeared in the Forward’s July 22 article “‘Progressive’ Shmatte King, Sweatshop Foe, Faces Workers’ Protests Over Harassment,” regarding allegations against American Apparel founder Dov Charney. Our article stated that in July of last year, Jane magazine published a profile of Charney in which its writer described “a consensual sexual relationship she had with the American Apparel founder while reporting the story.” In fact, the author of the Jane article did not write that she and Charney had physical contact of any kind. She only described contact of a sexual nature by Charney that she witnessed during an interview. We apologize for the error.
