What offensive thing did Tommy Hilfiger allegedly say on Oprah?

: tommy hilfiger oprah

Why: On reddit, Abercrombie asks 'Jersey Shore' cast not to wear their brand, and in the comments:

Poor A&F is worried about the brand image because the wrong people are wearing it. Some may find this funny because the Jersey shore group seems easy to ridicule. But if A&F said the same thing to another group for example African Americans I think we'd be rightfully appalled. Can anyone remember the backlash against Tommy Hillfiger because of what he allegedly said on Oprah? It should be the same here.
I can not remember that.

Answer: Nothing! Here was a forward that yourmomsilliteratefriend@aol.com sent you in 1996:

Tommy Hilfiger on Oprah

Hello, please read.... and pass on if you haven't already! Everyone needs to see this.

God for Oprah!!!! I'm sure many of you watched the recent taping of The Oprah Winfrey Show where her guest was Tommy Hilfiger. On the show, she asked him if the statements about race he was accused of saying were true. Statements, like"...if I had known African-Americans, Hispanics, Jewish and Asians would buy my clothes, I would not have made them so nice. I wish these people would *NOT* buy my clothes, as they are made for upper class white people."

His answer to Oprah was a simple "YES". Where after she immediately asked him to leave her show. My suggestion? Don't buy your next shirt or Perfume from Tommy Hilfiger. Let's give him what he asked for. Let's not buy His clothes, let's put him in a financial state where he himself will NOT be able to afford the ridiculous prices he puts on his clothes.


Nothing empowers people quite like their own survival!
The rumor stemmed from a fake interview in a Filipino tabloid. Also, Oprah never even met Tommy Hilfiger until 11 years after the alleged kicking-off incident, in May 2007.

She kind of looked like an alien.

The More You Know: Anyhoo, CNN says that Abercrombie stock has fallen 9% since they dissed "Jersey Shore," which I guess means they had a lot more orange fistpumping investors than they thought. But I'm not surprised.
