Dov Charney is the creator of American Apparel, a retail clothing chain that sold the building blocks for your hipster wardrobe - leggings, plain T-shirts, and pants. But it had really sleazy marketing and a dedication to not make their clothes in a sweatshop which made them kinda cool. Unfortunately, Dov Charney is probably more famous for his sexual harassment than he is for American Apparel.

What a Creep: Rachel Hollis

Season 11, Episode 4

Motivational Creep 

A few short years ago, motivational speaker Rachel Hollis was at the top of her game. Followed by millions on social media with her inspirational message of getting everything you want in life and overcoming poverty & sexism with cheery optimism & a bit of Jesus thrown in.

Married to her only boyfriend with adorable kids and an MLM/speaking business designed to help women to be girl bosses and take accountability in order to overcome shyness, abuse, and even worse—your awful fatness, Rachel was a hit.

Then she released a social media post extolling her desire to no be relatable and her followers took off.

There are dozens of blogs, YouTube channels, Tik Toks devoted to Rachel Hollis and her MLM ilk. Today, I am trying to be an overall perspective on who she is, what she claimed to be, and why it all seemed to go away.

Trigger warnings: Domestic Violence, death by suicide & fat shaming.
