I just read an article about a lawsuit against Louis Vuitton and am shocked.
The story said that some Jewish employees sued Louis Vuitton for not allowing them time off work for holidays and things like that.
The person who was speaking for Louis Vuitton apparently responded by comparing jewish people to vegans and saying that being Jewish is just a lifestyle choice!
I will never carry another Louis Vuitton handbag!February 13, 2011 1:40 pm at 1:40 pm #1099599apushatayidParticipant
The lawsuit you reference is not about making people work on a religious holiday, it is a general “hostile environment” lawsuit of which working on saturday is but a component.
Where did you read that lawyers comment? Not that I don’t believe it, Louis Vuitton company also said some outrageous things about African Americans (google it).February 13, 2011 2:33 pm at 2:33 pm #1099600OfcourseMember
Perhaps the LV admin wants LV bags to be the Bag of Choice for WASPs only.February 15, 2011 9:35 pm at 9:35 pm #1099601
There are a couple journalists following the case.
My friend know one of them. He said that there was some kind of judgment hearing where Louis Vuitton was trying to get the lawsuit kicked out of court.
My friend said that there were a whole bunch of lawyers from Louis Vuitton and one of them mentioned that being Jewish is a lifestyle choice like being a vegan and that the lady who is suing should not have any special kind of protection.February 15, 2011 10:58 pm at 10:58 pm #1099602apushatayidParticipant
Well. Given the level of observance of the litigant (based on how she is described in court documents) is the lawyer all that wrong, vis a vis the litigant?February 28, 2011 11:29 pm at 11:29 pm #1099603
Louis Vuitton owns Christian Dior.
Christian Dior’s top designer was just ARRESTED in France for an anti-semitic assault!March 1, 2011 2:17 am at 2:17 am #1099604neekMember
wow! i was just about to buy a lui voton bracelet! few!March 1, 2011 4:34 pm at 4:34 pm #1099605SJSinNYCMember
To a certain degree, I agree that being an observant Jew is a lifestyle choice. However, it is protected by law and unless there was some sort of hardship involved, accomodations are required.
Why would anyone buy LV anyway? Its ugly and overpriced. The knockoffs cost like $10 and look very similar.March 1, 2011 5:18 pm at 5:18 pm #1099606aries2756Participant
And now the whole world sees a bit of what our French brethren go through on a daily basis.March 1, 2011 5:31 pm at 5:31 pm #1099607always hereParticipant

i dont see a problem with the LV comment…someone please explain what is wrong with what he said. objectively speaking, judaism is a lifestyle choice no different from buddhism of veganism. we believe that it is more, but as on objective outsider…what difference is there really?March 9, 2011 11:48 pm at 11:48 pm #1099609
To always here:
I am glad that the company is finally taking action to finally dismiss one of their employees for making anti-semitic comments. It is sad that it took a video on uTube to make them take responsibility. It is too bad that Dior and Louis Vuitton don’t take similar actions against their (not so famous) employees and managers.March 10, 2011 1:43 am at 1:43 am #1099611mybatMember
Well maybe the fact that the owner of Dior is Jewish has something to do with it?September 9, 2015 10:52 pm at 10:52 pm #1099612This name is already takenParticipant
