Karl Lagerfeld Slams #MeToo Movement: 'I'm Fed Up With It'

Karl Lagerfeld Slams #MeToo Movement: 'I'm Fed Up With It'”

The outspoken Chanel director, who is also an in-demand photographer, claims many women are using the movement, which launched past year as a wave of sexual harassment allegations hit the entertainment industry, to make wild accusations about people they don't get along with.

Interview creative director Karl Templar faced harassment allegations in February after a model claimed he "tried to pull her trousers down", and Chanel director Lagerfeld has argued that the behavior is to be expected when working as a model. He also jumped to the defense of ousted creative director Karl Templar, who faced misconduct allegations of his own in February.

I was most shocked starlet that took 20 years to remember what happened. "Not to mention the fact there are no prosecution witnesses", he said in an interview with Numéro magazine.

"I'm fed up with (the Me too movement)".

Of late, many known fashion photographers like Terry Richardson, Mario Testino and Bruce Weber were accused of sexual harassment by dozens of female assistants and models.

Lagerfeld's interview quickly went viral, with Netizens slamming him for his derogatory comment and lambasted him for slamming the #MeToo movement and women who dared to speak out. One girl complained that he tried to get into her trousers, and it instantly banished from the profession in which he excelled prior to this incident. It's unbelievable. If you don't want your trousers pulled about, don't become a model!

Despite his criticism of the current climate, Lagerfeld says he "cannot stand" disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein whose accusers led the charge of the Time's Up movement. "I had a problem with him at [the] amfAR [Gala]", he continued.

".Now you must ask a model if she is comfortable with posing". From this point on as the designer, you can do nothing, - said creative Director of Chanel. "Join the [convent] instead, there will always be a place for you at the convent".
