A&F Statement 
March 23, 2012 
 
Yesterday, A&F was made aware of counterfeit websites that used racial epithets to describe product associated with their brand. Abercrombie & Fitch has a zero tolerance policy for discrimination and they do not condone racism, racist language and other bias behavior. This information went viral on twitter. The company took action and put a statement out on the Abercrombie & Fitch Facebook page. Their Senior Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion, Todd Corley, also sent a message from his twitter page (@corleytodd).
 
The A&F Diversity & Inclusion team, in collaboration with the A&F Legal team and Brand Protection team has begun a process to enforce any penalty appropriate by law. Please follow Todd (@corleytodd) to learn more on any new developments. To learn more about the A&F diversity initiative, please visit http://www.anfcares.org/diversity/

Its important for corporations to take a stance on these issues, as they have the ability to vastly influence. No one deserves to be singled out. Smaller companies and individuals can then follow suit and perhaps someday we can live in a world without discrimination.
