And in true hipster irony, it's not a sexual harassment case - as AA Chairman Dov Charney has been taken to court for multiple times. Allen is suing for $10 million saying he was never contacted by and did not give American Apparel his consent to use an image of him dressed as a Hasidic Jew from a scene in "Annie Hall." Not a very kosher move for AA!
In a U.S. District Court in Manhattan on Monday, Allen stated that he does not endorse commercial products or services in the U.S., which makes the May 2007 American Apparel billboards and website displays "especially egregious and damaging."
American Apparel billboards are usually clad with skinny young hipsters, often in compromising positions. The company did not immediately reply to an email seeking comment.
