Fashion Designer Donna Karan Blames Harvey Weinstein's Victims, Quickly Apologizes After Backlash

 At the CinéFashion Film Awards on Sunday, Donna Karan appeared on the red carpet to give an interview that went wildly wrong. When asked about the New York Times article on the decades of sexual abuse cover-ups by Harvey Weinstein, Karan had this to say:

 

 "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?"

Yeah, Twitter didn't take too kindly to her words either.

Rose McGowan who has been a leading voice in condemning the media mogul and asking the entire board of directors to step down from Weinstein's company, fired this tweet at Karan.  

McGowan for her part is gaining a huge amount of support as people are slowly piecing together that she has been sending out warnings for years.

Many others spoke out against Karan's outrageous statement.

After the interview came to light, Karan issued a statement.
