3 Old Navy employees fired after racial-profiling video goes viral


Three employees have been fired from Old Navy for racially profiling a Black man at an Iowa store.

James Conley III shared a image and four videos from Snapchat on his Facebook page Tuesday evening, and said he was accused of stealing the coat that he wore into the West Des Moines store.

“Today I was racially profiled by the Old Navy store in West Des Moines, Iowa in Jordan creek, ” Conley wrote in his post, which has now been shared over 150 K times. “I was accused that I didn’t pay for my blue bubble jacket that I got for Christmas that I wore into the store. As I was checking out to purchase some hoodies, I was asked if I wanted to likewise purchase the coat that I was wearing.”

Old Navy hear "the consumers " loud and clear and released its own statement Saturday morning.

“The situation was a violation of our policies and values, and we apologize to both Mr. Conley and to those we’ve disappointed, ” the statement said. “All of our customers deserve to be treated with respect. Following a thorough investigation of the incident, three employees who were involved have been terminated. We take this matter--and every dialogue around equality -- very seriously.”
