Just a few days ago, the famous American clothing designer of Taiwanese origin, Alexander Wang, celebrated his 37th birthday and received numerous congratulations from his star friends, and today he found himself in the center of another high-profile sex scandal.
It all started with the accusations presented by model Owen Mooney. Over the weekend, Mooney posted several videos on his TikTok account describing an incident that happened to him in 2017 in one of the overcrowded clubs in New York. According to Owen, it was there that he was harassed by a famous American designer, whose name he initially did not name. Later, one of the model’s subscribers guessed that it was Wang, after which Mooney recorded a second video in which he confirmed that it was Alexander who molested him in the club: according to Owen, he stroked his leg and touched his crotch …
Later, this video of Owen Mooney appeared on the Instagram account Shit Model Management, talking about scandals in the fashion business. After that, a huge number of anonymous complaints rained down on the designer: in them many people claimed to have witnessed scenes when Alexander Wang injected drugs on his victims, and then persuaded them, who were in a state of blackout, to have sex. The openly gay Wang has focused on male models and transgender women.
A few hours ago, the famous blog Diet Prada also posted scandalous information about the fashion designer in his feed. In the post, the blog authors insisted on a fair trial in this case. No official comments from the designer or his representatives have been received yet.
Along with this, screenshots of the correspondence of the former muse of Alexander Wang Azalea Banks with anonymous users, who shared their stories with her in the direct at the end of 2019, also surfaced on the network: they told that they also became victims of Wang’s harassment. Now these stories have already been deleted, but screenshots of these correspondences still continue to circulate on the network.
Owen Mooney himself, who first raised this topic, admitted that many are simply afraid to speak openly about such things, because they do not want a negative reaction. The fashion model said that he had already been accused several times of wanting to become famous in the name of a designer who is known as a badass party-goer. At the same time, the designer, also known for his friendship with top models, was not noticed in such stories.
