American Apparel may be made in the good ole USA but that is about all they have going for them. Between their tasteless ‘teen porn’ advertisements and their constant lawsuits for sweatshop standards they are asking for a smack down.
While over 7 million suffer on the East Coast without power, and some without clean water American Apparel decide to start a ‘Sandy Sale’.
According to ABCNEWS;
Late Monday evening, American Apparel offered a “Sandy Sale” to customers who reside in states that were affected by the hurricane, including Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Maryland.
Broadcast on the website was a message reading, “In case you’re bored during the storm, 20 percent off everything for the next 36 hours.”
Wow, Tasteless much.
People across the US (including myself) are calling, emailing, texting our relatives and friends, desperate for news of their safety. There was a fire that claimed 80 homes in Queens and storm that killed 16-18 people in NYC alone. And they use hurricane Sandy for an advertising campaign?
Good job American Apparel. I don’t think anyone back East is bored enough to buy your clothing. Chalk this up to another case of bad taste.
