A Muslim teen in Oklahoma is alleging that a manager at an Oklahoma Abercrombie & Fitch refused to hire her because her head scarf "didn't fit the chain's image." A Muslim civil rights group has filed a federal complaint on the girl's behalf, citing the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which states that an employer must reasonably accomodate employees' religious practices. A&F, not surprisingly, had no comment. If it's any consolation to the under-18 teen, not conforming to the "Abercrombie image?" Definitely a compliment. [MSNBC]
