I received an email forward from my aunt yesterday, it was written in arabic and it went something like this:

Tommy Helfiger, the famous designer, is racist and he hates Arabs, Jews, Hispanics..etc, and that he wishes none of the aforementioned races would buy his clothes, And then the email went on to say that Tommy was hosted on the Oprah show and she asked him whether the rumor was true or not and He blatantly answered “Yes” as in the rumor is true, and then Oprah asked him to leave her show.

Naturally, after reading it I went to Youtube to see this victorious moment. And guess what? It turned out to be just a BIG Fat Lie. just another rumor that’s been circulating for years. Oprah had him on the show over a year ago and they talked about the rumor and set the record straight. I know a lot of people would fall for it coz I did for a moment there, so check the video yourself and stop this email from spreading. Watch the video HERE.

    The story is true 100% the only small waver is the jews and muslims the designer hates blacks and he was kicked out of opra’s show for the same reason. I saw the show back then.

    sorry yousef bas why would you even bother to search for such things. Arabs are used to such rumors and it pisses me more when then act like its true. take for instance
    1) Coca cola and the how they are trying to type “Allah”
    2)Nike and how they want us to wear the shoes with the name of god undekneath
    3) Apple store in NYC and they are saying its Alka3ba and its a nightclub
    too many other rumors that people still believe.

    you want my straight forward opinion ? They are dump arabs, they always spread the rumors because they think ena that way the can spread islam more and more but on the other hand they are runining the reputation of it and yes i dont consider my self an arab cause maysharefne to be honest bas im proud to be kuwaiti and thats it

    sorry if my post may sound offensive to some people bas this is my opinion
