Hollister models make slurs about Asians at South Korea opening

I read an article earlier today about how in South Korea, Hollister was opening their store and many of the male models made rude slurs about Asians. In many pictures, that haven't been released to the public, many of the male models were making "squinty eyes" at the camera. In another picture one of the male models was taking a photo with a "fan" and he was flipping the middle finger at one of the customers while the store was opening. Right away the head of Hollister fired those models and apologized to the public and mostly to South Korea for the rude behavior of their old employees. "On behalf of our more than 80,000 associates around the world who cherish our core values and our culture of diversity and inclusion, we sincerely apologize for the offense caused by these unauthorized, ill-considered actions." The article stated that Abercrombie & Fitch have been accused of favoring white salesmen. I think that is true. When have you ever seen another race, besides white, being a salesperson at one of those stores. I have seen one and that was in Ohio but I have never seen one anywhere else. 

I believe that just firing those models will not do any good. What will those models learn from doing that? All they learned was that if they make rude slurs while they are working they will get fired. I'm not sure what should happen but I just feel that something more should be done.
