Donna Karan, an icon in the fashion world, thinks that Harvey Weinstein is THE MAN!! Yes she really does, even after a week of revelations that put Weinstein and the underworld of Hollywood into the worst kind of limelight. Does she think about or care about the victims? In a word. NO.
“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?” said Karan during a red carpet interview on Sunday.
Wait WHAT??!! Am I reading that correctly? Is Donna Karan, a major fashion designer of women’s clothing really SHAMING victims of sexual assault??
Why yes, yes she is.
‘Yes, I think he’s being looked at right now as a symbol, not necessarily as him. I know his wife, I think they’re wonderful people, Harvey has done some amazing things. I think we have to look at our world and what we want to say and how we want to say it as well.’
The 69-year-old went on to say that the issue at hand is not solely Weinstein’s fault.
Well…Donna, I’ll say this. What has happened and what is now being uncovered is most certainly Weinstein’s fault. But yes, it is ALSO the fault of everyone EVERYONE who gave him a pass! And yes, Donna, that includes you.
