"If you don't want your trousers pulled about, don't become a model!"

Unfortunately, Chanel and Fendi creative director Karl Lagerfeld does not seem to see this outpouring as a positive thing. Join a nursery, there'll always be a place for you in the convent.

The outspoken Chanel director, who is also an in-demand photographer, claims many women are using the movement, which launched a year ago as a wave of sexual harassment allegations hit the entertainment industry, to make wild accusations about people they don't get along with.

I was most shocked starlet that took 20 years to remember what happened. "All their accusations of harassment, they have become quite toxic", Karl told Numéro Magazine.

In a candid interview with Numero magazine, the bristly designer, bluntly said that he is "fed up" with the #MeToo movement. So he responded to the question about the number of models, accusing photographers, designers, stylists and other representatives of the fashion business in the harassment. "They're recruiting even!" The designer said he didn't believe a "single word" of the accusations against Templer, noting that 'a girl is complaining that he pulled on her panties and he gets excommunicated from an industry that, until then, worshipped him'.

Despite the prominence of the movement both in and out of fashion, Lagerfeld said that both the #MeToo and #TimesUp have "absolutely not" affected the way he approaches his work.

Karl, 84, also added, however, that he "cannot stand Mr. Weinstein", but noted his distaste for the predatory movie producer was of a professional nature.

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". "It's simply too much, from now on, as a designer, you can't do anything", he said, according to People. "I had a problem with him at [the] amfAR [Gala]", he continued.
