(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Abercrombie and Fitch is in damage control.
The company announced Tuesday that it is offering a college scholarship for high school students who persevere in the face of bullying and students who lead anti-bullying efforts.
The news comes weeks after a 2006 interview with Abercrombie's CEO resurfaced on the web, where he admitted the company wanted to exclude uncool and unattractive kids and young adults, and admitted the company is exclusionary by design.
