According to the Daily Mail, the watchdog group Sh*t Model Management stated “Alexander Wang is an alleged sexual predator, many male models, and trans models have come out and spoken about the alleged sexual abuse that Alexander Wang has inflicted upon them,” and added, “It is important to show your support to these victims by unfollowing Alexander Wang and boycotting his clothing line.”
Later, another model Owen Mooney came forward and accused Wang, and he claimed that Wang violated him in 2017 while he was at a packed club in New York City.
The sun reported that Model Mooney said in a video “I was by myself at one point and this guy next to me obviously took at advantage of the fact that no one could f**king move,” then he added “’just started touching me up, like, fully up my leg, in my crotch.”
Then Mooney concluded the statement “It made me freeze completely because I was in so much shock,” the model said.
Later, one accuser wrote “Alexander Wang, is absolutely know for these things you’re posting. One friend of mine, who is a trans man, was in a limo for an after-party with him a while ago. Upon getting inside the car, they were given water and they felt uneasy about the whole thing bc Alex was making sure they all finished their water. A few moments after, they noticed they were rolling and had been given molly water. This was a regular occurrence, because a year after being told this story, I also heard other people confirm that they also got drugged on the way to an after-party. Most of them left, obviously because they were unknowingly on a Lot of MDMA.”
Another wrote “After seeing your stories, I want to add my voice to the many so that Alexander Wang is exposed for the monster he is. Once after a show, he did the same “Molly Water” trick on me. I didn’t know at the time but I’m bipolar, and they Molly sent me into a manic episode followed by psychosis. His smug “prank” literally put me in the hospital for weeks and ruined my career. Still, in some horrible way, I’m grateful that I had to be admitted to a psych unit that night because who knows what would have happened had things gone as he’d planned.”
