Karl Lagerfeld: Greeks Are Disgusting, Russian Men Are Ugly

Karl_Lagerfeld.jpg

As the guest editor of Metro World News for one day, Karl Lagerfeld proved to be a sort of cross between Andy Warhol and the guy who tweeted dumb stuff about the David Beckham underwear ads.

Thanks to this Metro World News link, we have the following Lagerfeld emissions -- and bear in mind that the designer feels too much political correctness can be dreadfully boring.


His views on Greece's shaky economy:

"Nobody wants Greece to disappear, but they have really disgusting habits -- Italy as well."


On Russian women:

"If I was a woman in Russia, I would be a lesbian, as the men are very ugly. There are a few handsome ones, like Naomi Campbell's boyfriend, but there you see the most beautiful women and the most horrible men."


His view on M.I.A. giving the middle finger at the Super Bowl:

"Nowadays people give the middle finger quite quickly -- it's not the best behavior. Everybody does that, what's new about that? It's just become a bad habit. People in magazines are 50 percent bimbo and 50 percent pregnant women."


On our president and first lady:

"I'm a big fan of Mrs. Obama -- and her face, I think, is magical. He would not be there without her. Mrs. Obama is not a fashion statement but she has other things to do. ... I want Obama to win because there is nothing better anyway, and especially because of her."


On the current crop of female singers:

"I prefer Adele and Florence Welch. But as a modern singer, [Lana Del Rey] is not bad. The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice. Lana Del Rey is not bad at all. She looks very much like a modern-time singer. In her photos she is beautiful. Is she a construct with all her implants? She's not alone with implants."


No, she's not. But lesbianism is a choice? And the man who reportedly spits his Nutella back into the jar thinks Italians have disgusting habits?

Oh, Karl, you're so charming! (Rolls eyes.)

Karl, throw your complexes and fears away! I recommend you to bring to Russia as many women from western Europe as possible, and Russian men will make many very beautiful women and very strong men for your motherland and for all other European countries. Don’t be afraid us, don’t hate us. From Russia with Love! Russian Man.

He looks pretty disgusting himself...instead to criticize the Greeks and Italians who have taught how to be a gentlemen, he should look himself in the mirrow or even better the bowl is there to flash his head in it.

OMG Becky! who told you about the nutella thing?? i heard it from a model who was on a chanel casting and saw it through the crack of an open door with her very own eyeballs. i believe it because, really, she wasn't that imaginative of a girl. eating is cheating!

He's a honest witty guy. The Italians are really disgusting. I lived for 2 yrs in Florence. Example: They used their hands and blow snot on the fingers and fling it. They pee everywhere on the street and work in restaurants under filthy unsanitary conditions. They defecate in holes and don't wash while cooking food with fecal matter on hands. No lie. They present the food pretty though. Really disgusting people.

I'd pay attention [not] to this..if I could just stop involuntarily putting an "n" in his name.

What's with the dark shades at (apparently) night event?  A good way to mask aged eyes?

I looked too and can't seem to find a link to Metro World News, and their Facebook page (if it's even the same publication) has nothing on it.

Can we get a link to the Metro website?

I agree with him on the Obamas - I wish she was president.

I think he's witty and clever but should put a lid on the bigotry stuff.

So much for all your fighting against discrimination. If someone trashes Greeks, Italians, and Russians, you say, "I love Karl!" Phony and hypocritical as usual.

Maybe you rubbed elbows with the lowest element.  Likewise, can you imagine the stories people might tell about the trashiest people...anywhere?

Great. If I stayed in Brooklyn for a few days and it turned out the guy downstairs was a serial killer then I can finally say: Watch out, all Americans are serial killers!

Bytch, is there something wrong with being against anti-black racism? What is your problem?

Karl's comments about other entire groups of people were horrible. But that doesn't give you license to break out your typical anti-black racism. Go slurp up some Santorum!

look! you doo-doo bird. if you had read the article alot of what musto quoted was written out of context, you asswipe!karl has discriminating tastes! so what! READ the article, mama!and if the pump fits then wear it.;especially, if it´s by chanel!

And I just read the link and while the Greek comments do have a larger context, the Russian ones do not. "Russian men are ugly" is exactly what he said.

The old "out of context" excuse. Please. If it's anti black, it's horrible to you. If it's anti anyone else, it's "out of context" and "discriminating tastes." I.e., you make it a positive! You should be ashamed. Hypocrisy in the dictionary has your face.
