Is it illegal to fire someone for being ugly?

From the blog highlighted in last Tuesday’ s TWB*:

An e-mail was recently leaked online in which American Apparel CEO Dov Charney demanded store managers send him pictures of every employee. His master plan: look over every photo personally and fire anyone he considered ugly.

The result? As long as you are applying the standard equally to wome and men, there is probably no actionable recourse.
