Karl Lagerfeld is known for his quick tongue: if he thinks a star is not perfect, the “victim” has to listen to the famous couturier’s criticism. The designer has already made his scathing commentaries about Adele, Pippa Middleton, Angela Merkel, and even U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama.

The designer’s talkativeness can now turn into a trouble for him: according to the press, the French organization that protects the rights of “plus size women” intends to sue Lagerfeld in court.

Such activists of the organization as Belle, Ronde, Sexy et Je M’assume (“Beautiful, Rounded, Sexy and fine with it”) are ready to oppose the designer. In their opinion, the designer should be fined for his “derogatory comments” about the women with grand forms.

The reason was Karl’s interview with the French Le Grand 8 channel, broadcast in early October. In the interview, the designer speaks of health problems in “fat people” and states:

“No one wants to see curvy women.”

The designer’s words have outraged Betty Aubriere, president of the women’s organization:

“We’re fed up. Many young girls are insecure and hearing such comments is terrible for them. Today it’s him who insults us and tomorrow who will it be?”

It is unknown yet how the designer reacted to the news about a possible trial.
