Donna Karan: Weinstein Accusers May Have Been ‘Asking for It’

Fashion designer Donna Karan suggested that Harvey Weinstein’s alleged victims, as well as other sexual assault survivors, may have been “asking for it.” “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,’ Karan said during an interview, when asked about the allegations against Weinstein, with whom she is friends. “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 called Weinstein and his wife "wonderful people.”

Actress Rose McGowan, who was reportedly one of Weinstein’s alleged victims, called Karan’s comments “deplorable.”
