Dov Charney of American Apparel wants to be Hugh Hefner

Dov Charney, CEO of American Apparel is giving you his best perv face in the picture above and after washing his dirty stash with Palmolive, he proclaimed that he would like to have Hugh Hefner's lifestyle. As NY Times report:

To illustrate the point, he grabbed a Time magazine from July 1973 and turned to an article about Mr. Hefner and Bob Guccione, the founder of Penthouse. There, the two publishing magnates were photographed working on their magazines and enjoying dinner around a table, surrounded by women, naked and clothed.

He said he was worried about preserving the company’s distinct culture.

And this is when all of our brains go "... HUH?". Hugh Hefner has an enterprise beyond his initial business of Playboy magazine while American Apparel is on the verge of bankruptcy. True, both Hef and Dov have sex with their employees, but at least Playboy employees do not sue Hef for sexual harassment unlike ones at American Apparel. Well, it's a bit difficult to file for sexual harassment when your job is to get naked and be photographed. Say, can a porn star ever file for sexual harassment during work?

Here are some ads of American Apparel which got a lot of slack for being too much like porn, most of these pictures are taken by Dov himself in his 20-room two-story home where the female friends and employees stay over:
