Jameela Jamil Calls Out “Vogue” For Making Karl Lagerfeld The Theme Of Next Year’s Met Gala

October 4, 2022 / Posted by:

Jameela Jamil is calling out Vogue and the Metropolitan Museum of Art for choosing of Karl Lagerfeld as the theme of the 2023 Met Gala. Jameela points to his comments regarding Holocaust jokes and ethnic cleansing, fat-shaming, shaming of gay adoption, and dismissing sexual assault against women in fashion telling them to “join a nunnery.”

The 2023 Met Gala will be the first Monday in May–AS USUAL!–but this one is probably giving the Angel Number girlies palpitations because it’s also the very first day in May. The theme is Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty and was announced as the crowning exhibit last Friday. It will run at the Met from May 5 to July 16 and feature around 150 designs from Karl’s work with designers like Balmain, Patou, Chloé, Fendi, Chanel, and his own eponymous label. But Jameela, who has called out Karl in the past,  is not living for all of this fashion coming to us courtesy of Karl’s ghost, and possibly a legal release from privileged pussy Choupette Largerfeld, who I assume owns all the rights to everything Karl ever did. She’s roasted his ass in the past and didn’t hold back this time either. via People:

“This man… was indeed, supremely talented, but used his platform in such a distinctly hateful way, mostly towards women, so repeatedly and up until the last years of his life, showing no remorse, offering no atonement, no apology, no help to groups he attacked… there was no explanation for his cruel outbursts.”

…Along with a carousel of images, in which she elaborated that Lagerfeld, who died in February 2019 at the age of 85, was “someone who reveled in his own public disdain for marginalized people.”

“Those groups were women who were sexually assaulted, the entire me too movement, gay couples who wanted to adopt, all fat people, specifically fat women, and some of his greatest harm was against Muslim refugees, and the disgusting way he spoke about people fleeing their homes for fear of their lives,” she wrote.

She continued, “Why is THIS who we celebrate when there are so many AMAZING designers out there who aren’t bigoted white men? What happened to everyone’s principles and “advocacy.””

“…Sorry, but no. This isn’t the 90s. We didn’t fight all this shit  just to throw it all away because some white guy made some pretty clothes for people’s skinny faves… come on now.”

And there are receipts:

I’m sure the message will get through to Ice Queen Anna and Vogue will change the theme. OR more likely, they will stick with it and the 2024 Met Gala will be: “Coco Chanel: Did She REALLY Cozy Up To the Nazis THAT MUCH?”
