Leave it to a Hollywood liberal like Donna Karan to defend a sexual pervert like Harvey Weinstein. If this were a Republican, you can bet the MSM would be blasting Weinstein’s story loud and clear, far and wide. Instead, the MSM is nothing but crickets.
Then to add to the repulsive behavior, designer Donna Karan comes out and of all things, defends Harvey Weinstein. What the heck?! I thought liberals, especially women, were about protecting women’s rights? I guess that only applies to someone else….not one of their own. To add insult to injury Karan even said the women probably had it coming….by the way they dress. Unbelievable!
When Karan was asked to address the allegations leveled against Weinstein, 65, according to a video interview on the Daily Mail, the designer, 69, said women may be “asking for it.”
“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,” Karan said at the CinéFashion Film Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday.
Of course, what was really ironic was initially during the red carpet interview with the Daily Mail, the designer talked about injustice women faced around the world before defending her movie mogul friend.
How can Karan on one hand talk about the injustice of women and then turn around and defend this creep? Total insanity!
“I think we have to look at ourselves. Obviously, the treatment of women all over the world is something that has always had to be identified,” she told the reporter. “Certainly in the country of Haiti where I work, in Africa, in the developing world, it’s been a hard time for women.
“To see it here in our own country is very difficult, but I also think how do we display ourselves? How do we present ourselves as women? What are we asking? Are we asking for it by presenting all the sensuality and all the sexuality?”
“And what are we throwing out to our children today about how to dance and how to perform and what to wear? How much should they show?”
How long as this lady been designing clothes that present that exact sensual and sexual statement that she hereself is referencing?
What a total hypocrite!
Of course Karan who isn’t going to bite off the hand that feeds her. Not only is she a good friend of Harvey’s, she’s friends with Weinstein’s wife and Marchesa co-founder Georgina Chapman.
Karan added, “Harvey has done some amazing things,” adding Weinstein and Chapman are “wonderful people.”
Wonderful? According to who? Just those who make money in Hollywood? What about his victims? What about the women he abused? Was he wonderful to them too?
Of course, when asked if Weinstein was “busted” following The New York Times exposé, Karan responded in the video, “I don’t think it’s only Harvey Weinstein.”
Oh, so she DID admit he was busted AND that there are others too! How nice of her to admit that! So two or more wrongs make a right?
Like I said, it’s just totally disgusting!
