Cara Delevingne Defends Karl Lagerfeld Amid Criticism After His Death

Cara Delevingne has just spoken out on her Twitter account after the death of Karl Lagerfeld.

“He was born in 1933! I am not saying I agree with some of the things he has said. I’m very emotional and mourning his death and feel like I have to stick up for him when he’s not here to speak for himself,” Cara wrote on Wednesday (February 20).

Since Karl‘s death became public knowledge, many have mourned his death but some have been pointing out some of the negative things he’s said in the past. For example, The Good Place‘s Jameela Jamil called the late fashion designer out as a “ruthless, fat-phobic misogynist.”

Cara continued, “Everyone has their own opinion and I felt the need to voice my own. All I want is for everyone to love each other no matter what. Just please understand that it’s an extremely emotional time and we must try use love instead of hate”

“All of these things should have been addressed while someone is living, not the day after someones death,” she concluded.

Cara worked extensively with the late designer and she posted about him several times after his death.

    good for her. that jammela person sits to SIT DOWN and SHUT UP. she was too chicken to say it while he was alive. i hate people like that. he probably refused to dress her ugly azz.

    I have no horse in this race, but …. um, this WAS brought up while he was alive and he had zero shits to give about it. Didn’t want to change, wasn’t going to change, not concerned with the feelings of others. He felt safe in his ivory tower, surrounded by wealth and privilege, and that protected him right up to the moment he died.

    She wasn’t too chicken. She was actually very open about it. Lagerfeld just didn’t care about the feelings of others. Ivory tower. That’s why I feel like it’s a bit rich for Cara to defend him — he didn’t care when he WAS alive, so why should anyone care now that he’s dead?

    she’s a nobody looking for attention. what are you? her publicist?

  • mahbelle

    it doesn’t need to be brought up the minute he died.
