Alexander Wang is denying sexual assault allegations levied in opposition to him on social media this week.
Earlier this month, as reported by each the New York Times and the Daily Beast, male mannequin Owen Mooney posted two movies to his TikTok account describing a time “a really famous fashion designer” touched him inappropriately and in opposition to his will, then saying that he was referring to Wang. From there, Instagram watch canine accounts @shitmodelmgmt and @DietPrada started sharing nameless tales from male and trans fashions accusing the American dressmaker of both sexually assaulting or harassing them.
Wang is now responding to the allegations. In a press release issued to Fashionista, he stated: “Over the last few days, I have been on the receiving end of baseless and grotesquely false accusations. These claims have been wrongfully amplified by social media accounts infamous for posting defamatory material from undisclosed and/or anonymous sources with zero evidence or any fact-checking whatsoever.”
“Seeing these lies about me being perpetuated as truths has been infuriating. I have never engaged in the atrocious behavior described and would never conduct myself in the manner that’s been alleged,” he continued. “I intend to get to the bottom of this and hold accountable whoever is responsible for originating these claims and viciously spreading them online.”
Fashionista will proceed to replace this publish with any new developments.
