Карл Лагерфельд о движении против херассмента: «Если не хотите, чтобы с вас стащили штаны, идите в женский монастырь!»

Sex scandal in Hollywood had died down a little and new stories, revealing the obscene acts of celebrities, was much smaller. However, the movement #MeToo continues their actions and gaining more and more adherents. Karl Lagerfeld has long kept silent his position, and now it became clear why — the designer has long been “fed up” of what is happening and believes that the new “reforms” in the working with models “bind” him hand.

In response to a journalist’s question about confessions of sexual harassment in an interview with Numéro 84-year-old designer said that “fed” them. “I was most shocked starlet that took 20 years to remember what happened. Again, no witnesses. All these accusations of harassment have become quite harmful… I read somewhere that now need to be mandatory to ask the model if her pose. From this point on as the designer, you can do nothing,” – says creative Director of Chanel.



Despite the negative attitude to the movement, Lagerfeld and Weinstein is not very fond of. While Lagerfeld has championed the stylist Karl Templer accused of inappropriate behavior.

“In the history of the poor Templer I don’t believe a word of it. One girl complained that he tried to get into her pants, and it instantly banished from the profession in which he excelled prior to this incident. This is incredible! If you don’t want to you pulled down your pants, go to a convent!” – emotionally responded the designer.

Early Liam Neeson also spoke out about allegations of sexual harassment, comparing what is happening with the “witch hunt”. “There are famous people, which suddenly began to accuse of all sins: because inadvertently touched the woman knee, or something like that. And after such charges removed from their programs, cease cooperation with them. It’s like a witch hunt,” says the actor during an interview with Irish TV show The Late Late Show.

In the example of Neeson cited the case of American radio host Garrisona Kallara who was fired last year from the radio station of Minnesota Public Radio because of allegations of harassment.

“I put my hand on the back of a woman. I wanted to Pat her on the back as a sign of comfort, because she was telling me about his grief, but her shirt was open, and my hand moved accidentally. She recoiled, I pulled my hand away and apologized. After I again apologized to it — in writing. She said she was okay and she forgave me. We continued to chat amiably, all was well. Until I got a call from her lawyer.” the incident, Garrison.
