While many Hollywood celebrities are speaking out in condemnation of Harvey Weinstein after a shocking New York Times report, designer Donna Karan appeared to come to his defense on Sunday—and Rose McGowan isn't having it.
Donna Karan you are a DEPLORABLE Aiding and abetting is a moral crime. You are scum in a fancy dress pic.twitter.com/Vze7lnpdvjOctober 10, 2017
By way of a little context: while on the red carpet, Karen was asked about Weinstein by The Daily Mail and 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?"
She since clarified her statements, saying:
"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. 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."
Meanwhile, Rose McGowan has been extremely vocal on Twitter, and her feed is worth checking out.
I have been hiding in plain sight, the panther amongst her prey. Well done for piecing together my clues. It’s all in the timeline. https://t.co/tLUWK1goZFOctober 10, 2017
