Brand: Tommy Hilfiger
Reason: Rumor had it that the famed designer did an interview with The Oprah Winfrey Show revealing that if he’d known that blacks were wearing his clothes, he would have never designed them. Soon after, the designer’s representatives sent out notices trying to put an end to the myth, stating that he’d never been on Oprah’s show and that the accusations were false and defamatory. But proponents of the accusations continued to boycott Hilfiger and his designs – even after his visit to Oprah to clear up the rumors.
