On the red carpet, Donna apparently told reporters, “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?” Donna has since issued an apology. Rose responded to Donna saying women may be “asking for it” by tweeting, “Donna Karan you are a DEPLORABLE Aiding and abetting is a moral crime. You are scum in a fancy dress.” Donna Karan you are a DEPLORABLE Aiding and abetting is a moral crime.

During an interview, the 69-year-old fashion designer implied that women may be “asking for it” based on the way they dress and present themselves. Donna is now adjusting her stance, sating that her answer was not representative of how she feels or believes. “Last night, I was honored at the Cinemoi Fashion Film Awards in Hollywood and while answering a question on the red carpet I made a statement that unfortunately is not representative of how I feel or what I believe,” Donna said in a statement. She added, “I have spent my life championing women. My life has been dedicated to dressing and addressing the needs of women, empowering them and promoting equal rights. My statements were taken out of context and do not represent how I feel about the current situation concerning Harvey Weinstein.” “I believe that sexual harassment is NOT acceptable and this is an issue that MUST be addressed once and for all regardless of the individual. I am truly sorry to anyone that I offended and everyone that has ever been a victim,” Donna concluded......»»

Donna Karan Apologizes A Second Time For Controversial Comments Defending Harvey Weinstein

Donna Karan continues to backtrack her initial comments about Harvey Weinstein.

As we previously reported, the fashion designer seemingly defended the controversial producer amid the allegations of sexual harassment and assault, pondering: "Are we asking for it by presenting all the sensuality and all the sexuality?" One day later she clarified her words, which she claimed were "taken out of context," and now, the 69-year-old is apologizing further. Related: Jamie Lee Curtis Slams Donna & Harvey! A source gave her newest statement to The Hollywood Reporter, which reads: "I am sorry for the comments I made last week. Those words do not represent who I am, what I believe or what I have represented throughout my career. For over 40 years, I have been a woman for women — presenting women in sensual ways through my advertising and runway shows. There is no question that women should wear what they want, when they want and without fear of being harassed, molested or abused. I am sorry for saying something I did not mean and I hope my track record proves who I am and that the words I mistakenly uttered last week do not represent my actual views. As a woman, mother, grandmother, designer and philanthropist, I have always put women first. My mission in life is, and always has been, to dress and address women, empowering and enabling them to express their professionalism, passion and sensuality. To the women who have shared their personal stories of sexual harassment and to those who have been abused and have not yet told tell their story, I stand by you...as your friend, your sister and your supporter. You are courageous. Beautiful. And I admire you. What Harvey Weinstein did is unconscionable and unforgivable. I apologize for my comments that gave the impression that I feel any other way about any man who disrespects, harasses or abuses any woman. Love, Donna" And in an interview on Monday with Women's Wear Daily, she explained she was "exhausted" from traveling when she answered the question about Weinstein: "And I was confused by the question. I mean, I hadn't been paying attention to any of the news, and you hear little stories here and a little story there. And quite honestly, it wasn't my place to say anything. Sometimes the press can kind of gear you on, and I didn't feel it was appropriate." Then came her surprise over her quotes: "I said, ‘I said that?' That was the first thing out of my mouth. What? I didn't say that. That's ridiculous." Donna further divulged: "I mean, if it came from anyone, it came from the mother inside of me. I shouldn't have said it. I'm a woman loving women and letting them be who they are. That to me is the most important thing. And I got scared." Are you buying her explanations and apology?? Sound OFF in the comments (below)!

Donna Karan Defends Harvey Weinstein & Suggests Alleged Victims May Have Been "Asking For It"!

Hours after the news broke, the fashion designer attended the CinéFashion Film Awards where she was asked about the movie producer's scandal on the red carpet. Related: Democrats Are Regifting Their Harvey Weinstein Donations Surprisingly, the DKNY creator places blame on the alleged victims, and says they may have been "asking for it by presenting all the sensuality and all the sexuality"! According to DailyMail.com: "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?" The 69-year-old then defends Weinstein and his wife Georgina Chapman as "wonderful people," and says the mogul isn't the only guilty person in Hollywood. "I don't think it's only Harvey Weinstein... I don't think we're only looking at him. I think we're looking at a world much deeper than that... 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." To make matters worse, she then shames women for how they dress, and how they are "presenting themselves" to the world: "You look at everything all over the world today and how women are dressing and what they are asking by just presenting themselves the way they do. What are they asking for? Trouble." YIKES! These comments are DEFINITELY not in season... [Image via FayesVision/WENN.].....»»

Megyn Kelly Rips Into Mayim Bialik & Donna Karan In New Op-Ed About Sexual Harassment — Insists "Victim Blaming Must Stop"

Shots fired!! Megyn Kelly is weighing in on the sexual harassment issue as she's recently penned an op-ed on the topic for Time magazine.

Megyn Kelly is weighing in on the sexual harassment issue as she's recently penned an op-ed on the topic for Time magazine. In addition to detailing her experiences with the former President of Fox News Roger Ailes, the Megyn Kelly Today star also took shots at Mayim Bialik and Donna Karan for their opinions amid the Harvey Weinstein scandal. Related: Weinstein Accused Of Violently Attacking Cannes Chauffeur Specifically, Miz Kelly insisted that "the victim blaming must stop." On Mayim and Donna's recent controversy, Megyn wrote: "Often it seems there is almost a presumption that those who get harassed must have done something to invite it, which leads too many victims to stay silent. Actress Mayim Bialik thought this was the time to discuss the virtues of 'not being a perfect ten' or being someone who hasn't had plastic surgery or who avoids flirting with men. (She apologized.) Donna Karan also had to apologize for suggesting that women are "asking for it." How insulting to victims. There are laws in this country. Wearing a short skirt doesn't violate them. Shoving one's tongue down an employee's throat does." Damnnnnn. While Megyn's not wrong in her opinion, we should reiterate that both Bialik and Karan have since apologized for their words. Understandably, this issue hits close to home for the blonde journalist as she was one of Ailes' many victims prior to his ousting at Fox. According to Kelly, she reported the late businessman's behavior to her superior, but sadly, "nothing was done." The 46-year-old went on to speculate that a "partnership with men" is the answer to ending sexual harassment in the workplace. The industry vet noted: "Perhaps the most critical solution lies in partnership with the men. The harassers must stop; we know this. But male titans of industry must stand up for decency. Shout it from the rooftops and whisper it in the bars when women aren't around, because we don't often get invited to the late-night drinks where those conversations happen. Those are the moments... Women alone cannot change the culture. We need men. Evolved ones. Kind ones. Brave and scared ones, like those who fear expulsion from the fraternity if they object to a male colleague's bad behavior." Hmmm, inneresting point.
