Donna Karan has completed an almighty backpedal following an enormous backlash towards her protecting her pal, the now-fired Hollywood intercourse pest Harvey Weinstein, and saying that a few of his sexual harassment victims were “asking for it”.
While being interviewed at the purple carpet on the Cinemoi Fashion Film Awards in Hollywood, she was once requested for her ideas at the Weinstein case. Weinstein, some of the robust males in Hollywood, has been fired from his manufacturing corporate Miramax after a New York Times exposé confirmed that he had paid off ladies he had pressured for a long time.
Karan mentioned: “I believe we need to take a look at ourselves. Obviously, the remedy of ladies all over the arena is one thing that has all the time needed to be known. Certainly within the nation of Haiti the place I paintings, in Africa, within the growing international, it is been a troublesome time for ladies.
“To see it right here in our personal nation could be very tricky, however I additionally suppose how will we show ourselves? How will we provide ourselves as ladies? What are we asking? Are we asking for it by way of presenting the entire sensuality and the entire sexuality?”
The Weinsteins were “glorious other people,” she added, sooner than gaily reiterating her level that ladies were asking for it by way of no longer dressing like nuns.
“You look at everything all over the world today and how women are dressing and what they are asking by just presenting themselves the way they do. What are they asking for? Trouble.”
WE GET THE POINT DONNA, YOU CAN STOP NOW.
Unsurprisingly, response to Karan’s remark was once no longer full of sparkling pleasure.
Karan’s PR company launched a remark on her behalf saying that she was once “truly sorry” and that her extremely long remark saying that ladies are asking for it by way of dressing in garments does no longer mirror what she believes. To which – hmmm.
“My statements were taken out of context and do not represent how I feel about the current situation concerning Harvey Weinstein,” the remark learn. “I imagine that sexual harassment is NOT applicable and this is a matter that MUST be addressed as soon as and for all without reference to the person.
“I’m in reality sorry to somebody that I indignant and everybody that has ever been a sufferer.”
