Oh my: Styleite has a very, very angry email from a former American Apparel employee. Ryan Narita worked in an AA stockroom before quitting, and he is definitely not concerned about burning bridges. He brands several employees “incompetent,” “useless,” “a moron,” and “satan incarnate.” As for Dov Charney? He’s a “blatant self-proclaimed pervert.” Though this does not reflect well on Narita professionally, it’s great gossip! See the rest of the letter here.

Never forget! To read the full post, click here.
