Alexander Wang Promises To "Do Better" in Response to Sexual Misconduct Accusations

A few months after claiming the allegations are “false, fabricated and mostly anonymous.”

Back in December 2020, a number of individuals called out designer Alexander Wang for sexual misconduct. After claiming that the accusations are false, the creative has now issued a statement promising that he “will do better.”

Taking to Instagram, Wang began his message: “A number of individuals have come forward recently to raise claims against me regarding my past personal behavior. I support their right to come forward, and I’ve listened carefully to what they had to say.” He continues: “It was not easy for them to share their stories, and I regret acting in a way that caused them pain. While we disagree on some of the details of these personal interactions, I will set a better example and use my visibility and influencer to encourage others to recognize harmful behaviors.” He finished his statement by saying that he “know[s] better” and “will do better.”

Back in January, the designer had claimed that the allegations were “false, fabricated and mostly anonymous.” A few months later, attorney Lisa Bloom took to Twitter to share that 10 men accusing Wang of sexual misconduct have “had the opportunity to speak their truth to him and expressed their pain and hurt.”

Head over to Instagram to read Wang’s full statement.
