Clothier Donna Karan made some fairly offensive remarks when she gave her preliminary response in regards to the Harvey Weinstein allegations earlier this month suggesting that the ladies had been “asking for it.”
“You have a look at every part everywhere in the world at this time, you recognize, and the way girls are dressing and, you recognize, what they’re asking by simply presenting themselves the best way they do,” Karan instructed The Day by day Mail. “What are they asking for? Hbadle.”
Karan later apologized and stated her phrases had been taken out of context. Nevertheless, a brand new interview with Robin Roberts that aired on Monday’s Good Morning America confirmed Karan giving what was purported to be a extra formal apology—which got here off a little bit…questionable since Karan actually smiled via your entire factor, and blamed her feedback on—you guessed it—lack of sleep.
“I like girls. I completely adore girls. I care about them. I’m a mom. I’m a grandmother, you recognize, and I’ve by no means finished this earlier than and I’ll by no means ever do it once more,” Karan stated, smiling all through.
She then stated that exhaustion and a 14-hour aircraft journey had been the explanations for her earlier feedback. You understand how it’s—being drained at all times makes us blame girls!
I don’t find out about you, but when somebody is smiling in my face whereas they’re apologizing, I’d really feel a little bit offended. Do you count on somebody to suppose you’re critical whereas there’s a smile plastered in your face? After which responsible it on an extended aircraft journey? Come on. Even when Karan actually is remorseful, she has a really bizarre approach of displaying it. It was laborious to picture a worse response to the Weinstein allegations and now it’s even tougher to think about a worse apology.
