He doesn't stop there, he further says, "If you don't want someone pulling down your panties, don't become a model".
Unfortunately, Chanel and Fendi creative director Karl Lagerfeld does not seem to see this outpouring as a positive thing. "Join the [convent] instead, there will always be a place for you at the convent".

Lagerfeld is defending the designers who have been accused of sexual misconduct without naming names, and admits he feels bad for Interview magazine creative director Karl Templar, who has been accused of trying to pull a model's trousers down during a photoshoot.
I'm fed up with it. "They're recruiting even!" The designer said he didn't believe a "single word" of the accusations against Templer, noting that 'a girl is complaining that he pulled on her panties and he gets excommunicated from an industry that, until then, worshipped him'. Again, no witnesses. All these accusations of harassment have become quite harmful...
Asked whether the movements like #MeToo and Time's Up prove to be hurdles in his approach to work, Lagerfeld said, "Absolutely not".
In the fashion industry, famed photographers Terry Richardson, Mario Testino, and Bruce Webber have been accused of sexual harassment, as well as Guess founder Paul Marciano, who was accused of misconduct by former Guess model Kate Upton. "It's simply too much, from now on, as a designer, you can't do anything", the German creative director explained, before bringing up the sexual misconduct accusations against Interview magazine creative director Karl Templar. "I had a problem with him at amfAR [the amfAR Gala is organised during the Cannes Film Festival in the fight against AIDS] ..."
