"They're recruiting even!" Lagerfeld said in response to accusations that Interview magazine creative director Karl Templer tried to pull a woman's trousers down.
Lagerfeld said since the movement started, it has become very challenging to work as a designer.
He said, "What shocks me most in all of this are the starlets who have taken 20 years to remember what happened".
Where several people are still speaking about the #MeToo movement, Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel and Fendi creative director has slammed the campaign and says that he is "fed up" with models and actresses speaking up about the sexual harassment they have faced over the years. "Not to mention the fact there are no prosecution witnesses", Lagerfeld told Numéro. It's simply too much.
When asked about Weinstein, Lagerfeld said, "I'll spare you the details, but he isn't exactly what you might call a man of his word".
At a final jab at the women who dared speak up, Lagerfeld suggested they change careers if they "don't want their trousers pulled about". For the uninitiated, stylist Karl Temper was of sexual misconduct by a model who claimed he "aggressively [pulled] down their underwear without asking them" in an exposé published by the Boston Globe in February. One girl complained that he tried to get into her trousers, and it instantly banished from the profession in which he excelled prior to this incident.
"If you do not want to be pulled on the trousers, do not become a model!" he said.
German fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld had some controversial remarks about #MeToo.
As to the identity of Harvey Vistana, then Carl admitted that he "can't stand Mr. Weinstein". "Join the [convent] instead, there will always be a place for you at the convent. I had a problem with him at amfAR".
