Uncle Karl, "Fashion Dinosaur," Speaks, Makes No Sense

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionKarl Lagerfeld


Okay, if you can explain to us the logic behind Karl Lagerfeld's thinking, we'll give you a cookie!

Discussing the use of fur in fashion, the Gloved One reasoned that the hunters who produce fur "make a living having learnt nothing else than hunting, killing those beasts who would kill us if they could," but that the "beasts" should be killed "nicely" if possible.


Although he admits that eating meat sometimes makes him "queasy" he also said that "in a meat-eating world, wearing leather for shoes and clothes and even handbags, the discussion of fur is childish."

PETA, in return, had some elegant words for Mr. Lagerfeld, saying, "Karl Lagerfeld is a fashion dinosaur who is as out of step as his furs are out of style. The vast majority of fur these days comes not from hunters as he suggests, but from Chinese fur farms, where no law protects the millions of animals who are routinely beaten and skinned alive," adding, "Lagerfeld’s childish refusal to acknowledge the needless suffering behind every piece of fur and listen to public opinion means that he is being overtaken in the style stakes by an increasing number of designers who believe that cruelty has no place in fashion."

Lagerfeld also shared some of his ideas regarding the use of size zero models in fashion, a practice that has come under attack as a major cause of rising cases of eating disorders among young men and women. He said that "there are nearly 30 per cent of young people who are too fat. So let's take care of the zillions of the too fat before we talk about the percentage that's left."

Everyone should be taken care of! An eating disorder is just as unhealthy as obesity!

    Mario needs to go over to TMZ to find out about John Travolta's son dying in the Bahamas, if he's not too busy trying to whore a book that nobody wants to read.

  2. 2

    I believe in fur.

    Meanwhile, John Travolta's retarded son has died and gone to Hell. Thanks Perez!

  12. 12

    PETA is stupid a lot of the time, but wtf, Karl is a pretentious douche!

  15. 15

    "there are nearly 30 per cent of young people who are too fat. So let's take care of the zillions of the too fat before we talk about the percentage that's left."

    HAH HAH! Although I like my women meaty, he's right. Thanks setting the bleeding hearts straight once more, Uncle Karl.

    First quote: He's thinking back to his childhood in the wild wild west, when killin bears n coyotes was just a part of everyday life. However, I have yet to hear of a mink eating a man alive.
    2nd quote: the leather is made from the animals we eat - such as cows - so we are using the whole animal. BUT the furs are made from animals we do NOT eat, hence they are killed ONLY for their fur.
    3rd quote: He's just making up any excuse he can to use those toothpicks who require less fabric - $1k yard fabric adds up! - and no special fitting because they have no special curves!

    Stupid old bastard.

  18. 18

    Perez is a fake he says in this entry

    Everyone should be taken care of! An eating disorder is just as unhealthy as obesity!

    yet on the banner for his book on main page he's got Be a Skinny Bitch
    You dont care about anyone, besides the be a skinny bitch
    you have attempt suicide…what kind of message are you sending.
    Every 16 minutes somebody dies by suicide in the U.S.
    At minimum 6 people are affected by these tragedies
    this can be a parent, sibling, friend, colleage, teacher..etc
    There are more people left affected after a suicide.
    Over 30,000 people take their own lives in the U.S.
    Times that by the people who are left to mourn.
    People come to your site for some light heart gossip. So it nice to see you be so careless to put Attempt Suicide on your page. I lost my dad 3 years ago and its really hard around the holidays. But besides the ones lost…what about the people who are thinking of taking their own lives and see that on your page.
    You should be ashamed of yourself.

  19. 19

    What a douche.
    PETA's more of a douche though.

  20. 20

    fuck peta

  21. 21

    Is that a picture of him or his wax facsimile? He looks weird.

  22. 22

    guns don't kill people. Donuts do. He right about the fat asses. Lose some weight.

  23. Lulz says – reply to this


    Being too thin with an eating disorder is FAR more deadly than being obese. Look at the numbers. Anorexia is the deadliest of all mental disorders, by far. The obese, on the other hand, save the country money because they die sooner and thus cost the health care system less than thin people. Look up the research. Anorexia almost killed a family member of mine and is DEADLY. His statement is dangerous.

  24. 24

    Old bastard ! He doesn't deserve all the money he has and the celebrity status. He is probably on drugs, I dislike him intensely. He will go straight to hell when he finally dies.

    Viva PETA, I feel so lucky this organization is alive and well ! Keep up the good work PETA, keep denouncing the tormentors and torturers of innocent animals. Fuck the whores who wear fur.

  25. 25

    Women are too damn fat and slobby…anorexia is an improvement.

  26. 26

    Dinosaur Karl s the best example for the fact that anorexia kills your brain cells….he obviously has not only lost his excessive weight till he reached a level of anorexia - and MORE - but also some of his brain tissue! :-)

  27. 27

    Karl is right on!
    Look after Teddy P. Befor Karl makes an accessorie of him… he he

  28. 28

    Perez Hates Me °°

  29. 29

    peta should just fuck off. until the second in command at peta dies from diabetes, they are nothing bu hippocrates. peta is against using animals in any way. but that douchebag regularly injects herself with insulin which comes from pigs. they do not even agree with seeing eyedogs, maybe pete should supply seeing eye people. fuck peta

  30. 30

    LOL @ Karl's last comment

  31. 31

    Karl's right-on about obese kids.
    GOOD-JOB for speaking out about this 'taboo' subject.
    Its a health epidemic!

  32. 32

    Kunt Slaggerpelt eats feces! This puckered up old prune would rather rationalize dingle berries than use any form of intelligence. Someone ought to stuff one of his bedazzled gloves with Michael Jackson's left over body parts, stuff it up his grand canyon sized buttgina and then skin him alive all to the fabulosity of that whamtastic vacuous std ridden bathroom cum sucker George Michael! Weeeeeee Now how many percent is that you bitch!

  33. 33

    Karl Lagerfeld has a house in vermont!

    What an old gay troll.

    People like ms -Vogue- Wintour or Mr Lagerfeld do not respect their models.They do not care if they ill of even die from anorexia.So if human life does not mean anything to them we can understand how they feel about poor animals.
    Coco knew about fashion and life.She was born in a poorhouse and she knew that "simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance".Mr Lagerfeld seems to be unaware of it.

  37. 37

    I think Lagerfeld has been huffing too much of those paint fumes from his fan.

  38. 38

    Anyone who supports this group needs to have their head examined!
    PETA's methodology is one of intimidation and threats.
    Uncle Karl is spot-on as he describes the hierarchy of man.
    Unfortunately, some folks seem to think that the Human Race can subsist
    without animals. Not true.
    We have evolved to utilize all aspects of the animals below us.
    Deal with it.

    Eating disorders are as deadly as obesity, they just happen in lesser numbers. They're not something that should be minimized or trivialized.

  40. 40

    I swear I saw him sitting between 2 older gayish looking guys in the American Airlines check-in at JFK airport today. But why would he be out there and not in the first class lounge?

  41. 41

    He is a Fashion Dino of course…. Chanel…. well…..if they do not like fur…welll you can use plastic… everything that comes from Chanel is good… if they burned a human and took the skin out of him they would say it is fashion and all believe it…. fashion is shit sometimes

  42. 42

    lagerfeld should just not speak..the old turd!!i mean he openly admits hes the most superficial person there is!!well thats honesty but it goes to show that if thats al there is..fuck that

  43. 43

    thank you mr. lagerfield, you're amazing.
    so so true. anorexia isn't nearly the problem that obesity is… most people only care about it because it makes them feel bad for being fat themselves.
    and good call on the fur. carpe fur!

  44. 44

    hes definately right about the fatties!

  45. 45

    karl lagerfield has been out of fashion for 2 seasons already.

    and he's such a freak now!

  46. 46

    I don't even care what the man has said…. he is the patron saint of gay men and women who have a no non sense attitude towards fashion.

  47. 47

    Re: ms bitch

    No, he's honest. So fuck you!

  48. 48

    Whatever. My love for Karl will never die.

  49. 49

    Wait a minute - this guy dresses the way he does, looks the way he does, and you're surprised that he makes no sense? Perez, this superannuated ridiculous fucker has NEVER made sense. He's a waste of oxygen, always has been.

  50. 50

    Last I checked the fur trade here state side was doing just fine. So will it be ok with Peta if I wear my coyote coat as long as it tried to eat a lamb before it was hunted? Although non-consumptive, there is a reason being predator hunting in the U.S.

  51. 51

    PETA has been and always will be a childish animal activist organization. I have no respect for PETA, and their followers. Read their remarks….unintelligible trash.
