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

Karl Lagerfeld sharing his controversial thoughts about the #MeToo movement.

The 84-year-old Chanel and Fendi creative director recently explained that he is “fed up with” the movement.

“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. All their accusations of harassment, they have become quite toxic,” Karl told Numéro Magazine.

He added that he did not believe the claims against ousted Interview creative director Karl Templar.

“A girl complained he tried to pull her pants down and he is instantly excommunicated from a profession that up until then had venerated him. Its unbelievable. If you don’t want your pants pulled about, don’t become a model! Join a nunnery, there’ll always be a place for you in the convent. They’re recruiting even!” Karl said.

While Karl is not a fan of the movement, he did say “cannot stand” Harvey Weinstein, who “isn’t exactly what you might call a man of his word.”

  • Priscila

    troll harder.

  • Ram

    anybody with sense can agree what this guy said is heinous, but at the same time…he’s 200 years old….so…this is awkward…

  • Maria M.

    I worship this man! :)

  • Ram

    karl on why he wouldnt want to design a men’s collection:
    “…having to put up with all those stupid models, no thanks. Not to mention the fact with all their accusations of harassment they have become quite toxic. No, no, no, don’t leave me alone with one of those sordid creatures.”

    he’ll be dead soon tho cause hes ancient so its ok.

  • Ram

    troll harder

  • Maria M.

    That’s what they do for a living, showing their tits and ass, you fucking moron! And they get paid for it.

  • Ram

    troll harder.

  • Priscila

    Jee, you are so nice..we should have a coffee one day :)
    kiss kiss.

  • Sanna Leena

    He knows he couldn’t keep his filthy hands off of the guy models, that’s why he only designs for women.

  • http://www.soundcloud.com/cigo8179 eternalfratboy

    Whatever! Women are annoying af!!!

  • Wen.M

    What he says is indeed true. The movement is good for some elements but the fact that anyone can go and say “ME too” without proof and publicly destroy someone else is just wrong. Any woman could appear and slam a man maybe only for revenge. The movement needs to be refined.

  • Lalique Murano

    Models often show their breasts and their ass. That’s their choice. Some might find it an immoral choice, but it’s still A CHOICE. Pulling someone’s pants down, however, is an act of aggression, and it’s also illegal. Charges of public indecency for showing somebody’s private parts would apply. In some jurisdictions, the aggressor might also be charged with battery or assault.

  • Lalique Murano

    Oh, and the fucking moron is Lagerfeld, who’s long been infamous for making outrageous comments — like the one he just made about #MeToo.

  • Lalique Murano

    The altar at which you worship Lagerfeld should only be seen from the back because his face is too ugly. If you don’t know what I mean, look up his comments about Pippa Middleton.

  • tom

    The truth and facts always hurt the libtards.

  • cutitout

    Models are pushed, pulled and posed like mannequins on sets, sometimes the stylist unbutton their shirts and pull pants up and down. Either they agree or they don’t work. Models don not direct shoots they do whatever they are instructed to do (within reason) or they are fired.

    Now as far as ” starlets who have taken 20 years to remember what happened.” they remembered fine they just did not feel comfortable to tell the world until now.

  • Jilly Beam

    Then why are you here?

  • Maria M.

    Her pants were pulled down on a set not in some office or an elevator. If you are shy than you shouldn’t accept photo shoots that involve nudity and then complain you were bullied to do the job you SIGNED up to do and were PAID to do. Modeling is not for everyone. Physical contact between models and stylists, make-up artists and photographers cannot be avoided. Nobody ever tried to pull my pants down because I didn’t DECIDE to make a living by showing my ass in a room full of strangers, mostly males who need to powder you tits and put you in a certain pose like a blow up doll. It is their CHOICE and they shouldn’t blame others if they regret THEIR OWN decisions. They can always work in an office from 9-5 for a measly salary like the rest of us.

  • Maria M.

    Model saying that she was assaulted by a photographer who unbuttoned her shirt or pulled her pants down during a photo shoot that involves nudity is like a porn actress saying that she was raped while filming a scene. The moment you sign a contract you are consenting to all the aspects of your disgusting job including those you don’t enjoy. People who blame others when their own choices make them feel uncomfortable are COWARDS not victims.

  • Ram

    you mean the #alternativefacts?
    my advice stands: try harder, tom!

  • http://www.soundcloud.com/cigo8179 eternalfratboy

    because i can bitch!!!

  • tom

    nothing to try fool

  • bennfbeckmaN

    Fucking asshole. Does he even know what it takes to come out with a story like this? He has no idea what he’s talking about. Plus, why does it even bother him? It has zero effect on him, unless he also abused women.

  • cafeast

    SHE IS TOO FAT! SHE IS FAT! gtfo

  • cafeast

    lol ok, I’ll hold my breath. lol

  • cafeast

    He has a pristine reputation and is beloved by both male and female models. You’re an idiot.

  • cafeast

    No they are not. China, India, Russia, Korea, the arab world and Japan don’t care about MeF-ingToo. Those are the countries that buy Chanel and Fendi.

  • cafeast

    What happened to James Franco is inexcusable.

  • cafeast

    Oh you won’t be buying yourself the new 10K dollar Chanel tweed jacket? Oh my god, their fucking loss!
    gtfo

  • cafeast

    They fucked for roles in their 20s, now nobody cares about most of them in their 50s. So they are all feminists! Figures.

  • cafeast

    He is a 100000. I want to see what you look like when you are almost 90. Besides, since when ugliness is a crime? Go fuck your pretty precious self.

  • Ram

    whatever makes you feel better ;)

  • cafeast

    Charlie Hunnam and a young Angelina under me.

  • Ram
