These are untrue rumors. First of all, I only appeared on Oprah once when she invited me on the show to rebuke the rumor. Oprah herself said “This is a big fat lie!!!” (Tommy never said that so people do not believe this terrible rumor this can be viewed on www.tommy.com as well as on YouTube with Oprah making this clear statement). I am from humble beginnings, have worked very hard to build a democratic broad based brand for people of all beliefs and backgrounds. Tommy Hilfiger
Rumor has it that I claimed to not want black people wearing my clothes. I was to have made this statement on Oprah. It also led to accusations that have been equally hurtful and absurd such as me not liking Jewish people, Spanish people, Pillipino people and those with brown skin.
