LOS ANGELES—Dov Charney posted his phone number yesterday and invited people with concerns about allegations of looks discrimination at American Apparel to give him a call. So who took the bait? Well, the Cut had a lovely but off-the-record chat with him while he was still waking up (there's something amazingly ballsy about the fact that they gave him a ring at 7am). And the Gloss got some quotes, including an outburst on the allegedly leaked emails Gawker's been published for the last few days. Says Dov, "The e-mail was inauthentic! It’s not even a real e-mail!" Want to ask him about it yourself? The number's 213-923-7943. [The Cut; The Gloss]
