Yikes. American Apparel CEO Dov Charney has been accused of allegedly choking an employee, attacking him with gay slurs, and throwing dirt in his face.
More after the jump.
The Huffington Post reports that former Malibu, CA store manager Michael Bumblis has made the accusations as part of a wrongful termination suit. He says his firing was retaliation for filing a complaint against Charney through company channels.
Huff Po writes:
"Bumblis said his tumultuous relationship with the boss dates to April, when Charney called and accused him of manning a competing apparel company's booth at a Las Vegas convention. According to the complaint, Charney also used the opportunity to threaten and insult Bumblis, calling him a "fag" and a "wanna be Jew." (Charney is Jewish.)
Bumblis, who said he is neither homosexual nor Jewish, is seeking unspecified damages for what he called wrongful termination, discrimination and assault."
Head over to Huff Po for full excerpts from the complaint. They're pretty graphic and if the accusations are true, we may have found a leading contender for the worst boss in America.
