Chanel fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld slams #MeToo movement, says models who complain should join the nunnery
Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld has reacted to the MeToo movement saying he is absolutely fed up and slammed models for having a problem with being groped.
The designer who has worked with brands like Fendi, Chanel and his own namesake Lagerfeld said that these stars have taken 20 years to remember what happened and with the absence of prosecution witnesses. He, however, said that he cannot stand the Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein whose actions were instrumental in starting the #MeToo movement.
The 84-year-old fashion designer also did not hesitate in shaming models who speak about inappropriate advances at work. He said designers are now supposed to ask the model if she is comfortable to pose in a certain way and said it is definitely too much for a designer to go through.
Lagerfeld further went on to say that if they didn't want their pants pulled around, then they shouldn't be models at all and should instead join a nunnery.
The designer has faced a lot of criticism for his comments and several people like supermodel Chrissy Teigen, comedian Whitney Cummings took to Twitter to slam the designer.
