Samantha Elauf is a Muslim who applied to work at Abercrombie and Fitch back in 2008 for some reason. Some fucking dumb manager wouldn't hire her because she wore a head scarf, which apparently violated their hiring standards. That's kind of like how being larger than a size 2 violated their hiring standards, except a lot more racist.
The Supreme Court decided that Abercrombie couldn't refuse to hire Samantha just because she wore a head scarf, her hijab, because it violated her religious freedom. That's legalese for "Get the fuck off your high horse and go back to selling overpriced graphic t-shirts Abercrombie."
Tbh Samantha, the employee discount on white, lace camis and micro jean skirts probs wasn't worth all of this, but somebody needed to put Abercrombie in its place. Their monopoly on nauseating cologne belongs in 2007..
