Andrew Christian Scrubs Topher DiMaggio's Face from Website Amid Sexual Assault Allegations
Popular underwear brand Andrew Christian issued a statement earlier this week regarding the sexual assault allegations against one of its trophy boys, Topher DiMaggio.
The statement, which came shortly after a fifth man accused DiMaggio of sexual assault, read as follows:
Andrew Christian does not condone sexual abuse or any other type of abuse or mistreatment to members of our community. We are taking allegations made by the victims very seriously. Accordingly, Topher is on indefinite suspension while we look into the matter. Late last year Andrew Christian started Project LOVE to help support various worthy charities in the LGBTQ community. Andrew Christian is committed to creating a safe welcoming environment for our LGBTQ family.
As of Wednesday night, when this article was published, DiMaggio's face and body remained on their website. However, his face has been officially scrubbed off but it looks as if they are still using his body to advertise their assortment of underwear and clothing.
DiMaggio's presence for Andrew Christian was quite large for a lengthy period of time, especially on their website. Whereas his face is officially gone, it's very clear that they are still using his body as he has a distinct tattoo right below his belly button which can be seen in some of the photos that are advertised.
Their other models, such as Nick Mascardo, are shown in full body length with his face included in the promos. Not sure if Andrew Christian will eventually do away with DiMaggio's body overall, but as of right now, it remains.
Should Andrew Christian remove DiMaggio completely from its website?
