Fashion Designer Donna Karan Gets Dragged on Twitter For Defending Weinstein: ‘You Are a DEPLORABLE’

Fashion designer Donna Karan is getting a ton of heat for defending her friend Harvey Weinstein.

When asked about the sex scandal on a red carpet, Karan responded by saying women have to “look at themselves.”

“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. Certainly in the country of Haiti where I work, in Africa, in the developing world, it’s been a hard time for women,” Karan said. “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?”

Let’s just say Twitter did not agree.

One of Weinstein’s accusers, actress Rose McGowan, slammed Karan for her remarks.

After receiving a ton of backlash, Karan released a statement, saying she was “taken out of context.”
