Tommy Hilfiger a racist?-Fiction!

Fashion Designer Tommy Hilfiger Said on TV That His Clothes Were for Whites Only, Not Asians, Blacks, Or Hispanics-Fiction!

Summary of eRumor:  
This email says that Tommy Hilfiger appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show and said that he created clothes only for whites.  Oprah got angry and threw him off the show.

The Truth:

This is a hoax.  There is no evidence the TV interview ever took place or that he made the racist comments.  According to a statement on his website, Oprah Winfrey herself, on her January 11, 1999 program, stated Tommy Hilfiger has never been on her show nor has she ever met him.
