Alexander Wang who is an American fashion designer has spoken out on the claims circulating around social media on sexual assault.
On Dec. 11, model Owen Mooney alleged in a TikTok video that a “really famous fashion designer” sexually assaulted him at a “packed” club in New York in 2017.
In the video, he claimed, “I was by myself at one point and this guy next to me obviously took advantage of the fact that no one could f–king move and he just started like, touching me up. And fully like, up my leg, in my crotch, like it made me freeze completely, because I was in such shock.”
Mooney continued, “And then I looked to my left to see who it was and it was this really famous fashion designer. Like, I couldn’t believe that he was doing that to me. It just made me go into even more shock. But it was really f–ked up.”
“He needs to be exposed… It’s just really f–ked up that people with this type of status, they think that their power like gives them this type of pass to be able to do this to people, but it’s so wrong.”
However, on the 31 Decmber, Wang addressed the allegations saying:
“Over the last few days, I have been on the receiving end of baseless and grotesquely false accusations. These claims have been wrongfully amplified by social media accounts infamous for posting defamatory material from undisclosed and/or anonymous sources with zero evidence or any fact checking whatsoever.”
Wang, 37, said he never participated in the alleged behavior, saying, “Seeing these lies about me being perpetuated as truths has been infuriating. I have never engaged in the atrocious behavior described and would never conduct myself in the manner that’s been alleged.”
“I intend to get to the bottom of this and hold accountable whoever is responsible for originating these claims and viciously spreading them online.”
