Banana Republic Manager Fired After Allegedly Calling Black Employee’s Braids Too ‘Urban’: Gothamist

“This week, one of our store managers questioned an African American employee’s braided hair style. Our team began an immediate investigation and the manager involved was promptly removed from the store. Today we concluded the investigation and can confirm that the manager has been terminated from the company,” Banana Republic spokersperson Sheikina Liverpool said. “Banana Republic has zero tolerance for discrimination. This situation was completely unacceptable, counter to our policies, and in no way reflects our company’s beliefs and values.”
