DONNA KARAN WILL BE WALKING BACK THIS HEADLINE IN 3…2…1…: “EXCLUSIVE: Fashion designer Donna Karan comes to Harvey Weinstein’s DEFENSE suggesting his victims may have been ‘asking for it’ by the way they dress calling the shamed mogul and his wife ‘wonderful people,’” screams the London Daily Mail’s homepage tonight:
She told a reporter: ‘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.
‘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?
I’m not sure those are questions a couturier to the (very leftwing) stars should be asking publicly if she wants to keep those commission checks flowing in.
UPDATE: Meanwhile, since crazy pills seem to be abundance on the left, the ordinarily sane, often quite readable center-left Jewish-themed Website Tablet went Stormfront so slowly, I hardly even noticed: “The Specifically Jewy Perviness of Harvey Weinstein,” screams their headline today. Screenshot here, in case it changes.
As Jon Gabriel tweets, “Damn. I’m a Finn and I’m offended.”
(There are no italics in twitter, but I’m pretty sure Jon’s OK with my adding them here.)
