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

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

 At the Cin√©Fashion 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?"
