Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries Finally Responds To His Negative Comments

In 2006 Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries gave an interview to someone, we don’t really care who, and said some pretty awful thing. Those comments are now coming under fire, and Jeffries has finally responded. 


In a statement delivered today via the Abercrombie & Fitch Facebook page, he was still being a huge jerk about the whole thing:

I want to address some of my comments that have been circulating from a 2006 interview. While I believe this 7 year old, resurrected quote has been taken out of context, I sincerely regret that my choice of words was interpreted in a manner that has caused offense. A&F is an aspirational brand that, like most specialty apparel brands, targets its marketing at a particular segment of customers. However, we care about the broader communities in which we operate and are strongly committed to diversity and inclusion. We hire good people who share these values. We are completely opposed to any discrimination, bullying, derogatory characterizations or other anti-social behavior based on race, gender, body type or other individual characteristics.

-Mike Jeffries

It sounds like he is coming out with his tail between his legs. Either that or someone higher up made him say that, because of all the public backlash. Some of the quotes that he said were from a 2006 interview, but other things were said by Jeffries to a female author who was writing a book about women’s fashion.
