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/
