Dov Charney in Hot Water over Russ & Daughters Publicist’s Instagram

Ah, the wonders of technology. They’re everywhere. You can’t hide from them.

Russ & Daughters publicist Jen Snow has been using her Instagram account to send out teasers for the historic Lower East Side store’s new venture, an Orchard Street restaurant. But this week, Snow’s eager snapping caught ousted American Apparel founder and former CEO Dov Charney in the East Houston Street clothing store where he used to be king, looking aound, checking out the scenery.

Except he wasn’t supposed to be there. Snow’s Instagram actually documented the embattled Charney apparently violating an agreement that banned him from the company’s properties.

@jensnow wrote: “Dov Charney is in the American Apparel store on East Houston Street. I asked the employees at the counter if it was him, and one nodded ‘yes’ tentatively, and the other asked me, ‘And how was your day at work?’ with an intonation of palpable discomfort.”

Buzzfeed acquired Charney’s termination letter from June 18, which states that the executive is not supposed to visit company facilities during his suspension. That’s “including but not limited to its manufacturing facilities, headquarters, distribution center, apartments and stores.”

To visit a store, Charney had to get “advance written permission” from the board, only if the request was “tied directly to an attempt to cure the violations and misconduct” described in his termination letter.

When asked about the visit by BuzzFeed, Charney said he’s not doing interviews, adding, “You’re on your own, buh-bye, thank you.”

Ah, the wonders of technology. They’re everywhere. You can’t hide from them.

Can we have a little less of those, maybe?
