Karl Lagerfeld Says He's Had Enough Of Ths #MeToo Movement

Karl Lagerfeld Says He's Had Enough Of Ths #MeToo Movement

This is incredible! If you don't want to you pulled down your trousers, go to the convent! - emotionally responded the designer.

Karl Lagerfeld, the creative director of brands Chanel and Fendi, who over the years has ruffled feathers with controversial opinions on everything from Adele's weight to Kim Kardashian's 2016 robbery, slammed the #MeToo Movement asking models not to get in the profession if they "don't want" their "pants pulled about". Join a nunnery, there'll always be a place for you in the convent. Lagerfeld also made it clear that he is not a fan of the fashion industry's rising designers - Simon Porte jacquemus, Jonathan Anderson and Virgil Abloh, the new artistic director of Louis Vuitton's menswear collection.

As women continue to come forward in the entertainment and fashion industries, speaking out about enduring years of sexual misconduct at the hands of men, the 84-year-old Lagerfeld says he's "fed up" with the number of models claiming years of harassment.

I was most shocked starlet that took 20 years to remember what happened.

Lagerfeld is defending the designers who have been accused of sexual misconduct without naming names, and admits he feels awful for Interview magazine creative director Karl Templar, who has been accused of trying to pull a model's trousers down during a photoshoot. Not to mention the fact there are no prosecution witnesses.

In a candid interview with Numero magazine, the bristly designer, bluntly said that he is "fed up" with the #MeToo movement. "All their accusations of harassment they have become quite toxic".

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.

Asked whether the movements like #MeToo and Time's Up prove to be hurdles in his approach to work, Lagerfeld said, "Absolutely not". It's simply too much. "I had a problem with him at [the] amfAR [Gala]", he continued.
