#Khaadi Has FINALLY Responded To Those Allegations With Their Side Of The Story

ARY NEWS

Renowned clothing brand Khaadi on Monday issued a clarification regarding a social media campaign against the brand.

The brand which was under fire for allegedly mistreating and firing its workers is facing a boycott campaign on social media after rumours one of its workers attempted suicide after being fired.

In a short statement, the brand categorically confirmed  hat it has not terminated 32 of its employees and the story regarding apparent attempted suicide of a young female worker is baseless.

“We categorically confirm that Khaadi has NOT terminated 32 of its employees. Another malicious story being spread and linked to the above is of the apparent attempted suicide of a young female worker. Why anyone should spread this outright lie is beyond understanding, but this just goes to show how some vested interests will stop at nothing to premeditatedly plan to try and cause reputational harm to Khaadi,” said the statement issued by the brand.

The statement adds that Khaadi, being a responsible corporate citizen, has always endeavoured to maintain and adhere to the highest standards in all operations-which also includes following best practices with regard to its biggest assets, the brand’s employees.

The brand also appealed to all social media users not to share or spread news that is pure hearsay, or base your comments on speculative news, no matter shared by who, without fully knowing the facts yourself.

A number of social media activists started calling for boycott of Khaadi after video of protest by people claiming to be workers of the brand went viral on social media.

A hashtag #BoycottKhaadi is also trending on the Twitter with social media activists calling for the nationwide boycott of Khaadi.

The new Miss USA helps regulate nuclear power plants

LOS ANGELES: The Miss USA pageant on Sunday night touted American diversity, and chose an African-American chemist with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to wear the crown.

Kara McCullough from the US capital will go on to represent the United States at the Miss Universe contest. “We regulate nuclear power plants. And I have a personal community outreach programme called science exploration for kids,” said McCullough, 25.

McCullough was born in Italy and also lived in Japan, South Korea, Hawaii. She was raised in the southern US state of Virginia.

As Miss USA “my plan is to inspire and encourage so many children and women [to enter] the science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields,” she said.

The pageant included a field of five new immigrants who spoke on air about the importance of diversity — as if to refute US President Donald Trump’s less than welcoming stand toward some immigrants and refugees.

Indeed, the runner-up was Chhavi Verg, Miss New Jersey, who was born in India and speaks Hindi and Spanish. The Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants for years were co-owned by billionaire Trump. However, in June 2015 the NBC network severed its ties with the now president after his offensive comments on Mexican immigrants. Following legal action Trump sold his stake in the pageants to a talent management group.
