Together, we can remake the A&F brand. #FitchTheHomeless Follow on Twitter: @GregKarber Shot by James DeLorean (@JamesDeLorean) and Daniel Lisi (@LisiDaniel)
You know, I read something earlier today about how my generation is more accepting of each others faults. Such as, looking beyond the fact that someone is of a different color or sexual orientation. Live and let live. We are more optimistic and positive. While we may not put much energy into changing something, we are optimistic that that something could be changed. We look to make equality the norm and we want to stamp out bullying. The CEO of A&F is a bully stepped right out of old tv shows and movies. He is old and out of touch with the Millennials. I know this is one person who is making this effort, but it sends a clear message to CEOs and those in power. I applaud this guys efforts.
Also, does the CEO have a right to be exclusionary. Sure. But do we as consumers in a consumer culture not also have the right to not accept or respect a decision where a jackass is being… well a jackass? We are forced often to look at our place in society in terms of physical features and amount of money because of old out of touch people who want to continue the awful traditions that were there when they were young.
