Dov Charney was fired by American Apparel this week after a long run of the CEO's alleged bad behavior, not to mention plummeting stock prices.
The former CEO has made headlines both for championing of U.S. manufacturing and support of immigrant workers, but he's also gained notoriety.
His company's extremely sexual ads featuring young women are a non-stop source of controversy, as are several lawsuits he's attracted for sexual harassment.
Charney, 45, was unanimously fired Wednesday night because of an "ongoing investigation into alleged misconduct," according to a statement from the company.
The bottom line had plenty to do with it. Boards will put up with an enormous amount when there's results, which for a long time he produced. Not recently.
