Lululemon founder says he was scapegoat for floundering company

The retail industry can't forget how quickly Lululemon's yoga pants rose into popularity, and then hit hard times after founder Chip Wilson blamed women's thighs for a costly product recall in 2013. Although Wilson did eventually apologize for his remarks, the disasterous interview ultimately led to his demise with the company. This past February, he resigned from the board after he and the other members were unable to see eye to eye. Wilson is now saying he was a scapegoat for the retailer's poor products, quality and innovation. Story
