The controversial statement of world-famous fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld is getting viral on the social media. He said he is “fed up” with the #MeToo movement. The 84-year-old Chanel and Fendi designer expressed his thoughts on the organization that supports women against sexual harassment and assault.
“I’m fed up with it. I don’t even eat pig [in France the movement’s known as #BalanceTonPorc],” he explained. “What shocks me most in all of this are the starlets who have taken 20 years to remember what happened. Not to mention the fact there are no prosecution witnesses.”
He continued saying,
“That said, I cannot stand Mr. [Harvey] Weinstein. I had a problem with him at [the] amfAR [Gala]. No, it wasn’t of a sexual nature, but a professional one. I’ll spare you the details, but he isn’t exactly what you might call a man of his word.”
He then said,
“I read somewhere that now you must ask a model if she is comfortable with posing. It’s simply too much, from now on, as a designer, you can’t do anything.”
“If you don’t want your pants pulled about, don’t become a model!” Lagerfeld retorted. “Join a nunnery, there’ll always be a place for you in the convent. They’re recruiting even!”
