Islamic attire being against Abercrombie and Fitch's "look policy", it fired a Muslim employee. There's so much one might say about this, but it is the opinion of one person that matters: Federal Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers.
Rogers ruled the firm violated anti-discrimination laws when it sacked Hani Khan from a Hollister brand store. Ms Khan was initially allowed to wear a scarf in the Hollister brand's colours at the San Mateo, California store, but was later fired. The retailer had argued deviation from its "look policy" would affect sales.
You may remember Abercrombie and Felch from discriminatory classics such as Abercrombie refuses to make large sized clothes so that "unattractive people" can't wear them.
If you're wondering what the "natural classic American style" defined by Abercrombie is, here's an illustrative marketing shot from the same teen-oriented Hollister clothing line.
"In every school there are the cool and popular kids, and then there are the not-so-cool kids," said CEO Mike Jeffries in 2006. "We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don't belong [in our clothes], and they can't belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely."
