A long list of celebrities have already spoken up after Harvey Weinstein was exposed for his alleged sexual assault cases which dated back nearly three decades ago. According to an exclusive report by the New York Times, the film producer allegedly invited several women to his hotel room to ask for sexual favors from what was supposed to be a business meeting.

Ashley Judd recalled her encounter with Harvey Weinstein who reportedly asked if she could give him a massage or watch him shower in his hotel room. The alleged incident reportedly took place two decades ago, according to the publication.

Emily Nestor, a former employee, had the same experience wherein the film mogul allegedly offered to boost her career in exchange for sexual favors. Several other women have also stepped out to testify against Harvey Weinstein since the news broke over the weekend.

Similarly, celebrities responded and gave their two cents on the issue. Emmy Rossum, in a series of tweets, criticized the film producer and insisted that what he did was "reprehensible and inexcusable."

Mark Ruffalo is hoping to see the end of these abuses after Harvey Weinstein was exposed to his wrongdoings.

Michael Keaton, on the other hand, called the film producer "disgusting and creepy" after sexual assault allegations.

DKNY founder slammed for defending film producer against accusations

But unlike these artists, Donna Karan came to the defense of the award-winning movie mogul and pointed her finger at the women who claimed to be victims of these alleged sexual assault incidents.

The fashion designer even suggested that these women may have asked for trouble and blamed them for the way they presented themselves.

The DKNY founder emphasized the need for women to look at themselves and evaluate how they display themselves as women. "You look at everything all over the world today and how women are dressing and what they are asking by just presenting themselves the way they do.

What are they asking for? Trouble," she said.

Her statements on the issue drew backlash from the online community with some users threatening to boycott her clothing line after defending the controversial film producer.

Some internet users started to use the hashtag #BoycottDK to call out Donna Karan for victim-blaming.

After she saw the backlash for defending Harvey Weinstein, Donna Karan explained that her statements were "taken out of context" and should not be considered a representation of what she feels on the issue. "I believe that sexual harassment is NOT acceptable and this is an issue that MUST be addressed once and for all regardless of the individual," she said.

The fashion designer ended her statement with an apology to those who were offended by her comments and to those who have ever been a victim of sexual assault.
