The perk of being an outspoken person is always having the ability to voice your opinions. The cons? Possibly some legal drama.
The latter seems to be the case with Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld, who took his insults of curvy women to the next level when he stated: “nobody wants to see curvy women on the runway.”
During an episode of French talk show Le Grand 8 earlier this month, the 80-year-old fashion icon also accused ‘fat people’ of wasting the country’s tax revenue through their ailments, stating that “the hole in social security” was down to “diseases caught by people who are too fat.”
Let’s take a pause to all remember a time in the not so distant past when Karl Largerfeld was quite the chubs himself... OK, now carry on reading.
According to Daily Mail, a group called ‘Belle, Ronde, Sexy et je m’assume’ (Beautiful, Rounded, Sexy and fine with it) are taking action and want to see Lagerfeld fined for his views.
Spokesman Betty Aubriere said the group has filed a defamation complaint, saying Chanel’s creative director has displayed a ‘discriminatory’ attitude towards those with fuller figures. She also states:
“These insults by celebrities must stop. We’re sick of it.. There are a lot of young girls who don’t feel comfortable in their skin, and for them to hear comments like that is terrible for them.”
Big, small, tall, short, We believe everyone’s beautiful! Do you think Karl Lagerfeld pushed the limits with his constant weight comments?
