Another said: “Should I unload my c***k now??? Like a filthy pig?”
Colleen Brown, who chairs American Apparel’s board, alleged that Charney verbally and physically abused employees as well as: “Frequently engaging in inappropriate sexual banter, infantilising women and referring to himself as ‘Daddy’.”
He reportedly sent messages that linked to pornographic videos and photos. Brown detailed lists of the messages Charney allegedly sent.
Charney’s lawyer, Keith Fink, said in a statement many of the allegations presented by the company were false.
“The company has engaged in an invasion of Mr. Charney’s privacy in a shameful attempt to extort him and gain leverage over him,” Fink said.
Earlier in June, Charney was the subject of a court order that prevented him from making any negative statements about American Apparel to the media.
Charney founded American Apparel in 1998 after borrowing $10,000 from his father. He was replaced by Paula Schneider, a fashion executive, in January.
