Sexual harassment, of course, isn’t funny. What I wonder, however, is if walking around in your underwear constitutes sexual harassment in an industry where at least 50% of the people walk around in their underwear anyway. Is this “ugly discrimination?” *snark*
Apparently he cast himself as the “fit model” for designing his underwear line . Walking around in his skivvies would seem to be integral to that function, and the claimants could be seen as disgruntled–were it not for this:
Charney’s eccentric behavior in and out of the workplace has become legendary. Most notably, he masturbated in front of a magazine reporter interviewing him in 2004.
*shudder* Must think of different image–MUST THINK OF DIFFERENT IMAGE–YAAAARGH!!!
On a side note, the picture of this guy immediately reminded me of Dan Futterman when he played Karen’s cousin Barry on Will&Grace. Before his makeover.
