A former Abercrombie & Fitch saleswoman has filed a $1 million lawsuit against the company, claiming that she was fired because she was black and had blonde highlights. Burchette claims a white supervisor demanded that she remove her highlights and, when she asked if she could instead go all-blonde the supervisor told her, "It is not natural." A&F, of course, has a longstanding commitment to the "natural" aesthetic, as evidenced by its 60-something CEO who dyes his own hair blond and remains committed to dressing the part of a frat boy vacationing in Cape Cod.
