Karl Lagerfeld Calls Newsweek a 'Sh*tty Little Paper'

A day without a krazy kwote from Karl Lagerfeld is like a day without sunshine. Here's today's gem: Remember that article Robin Givhan wrote for Newsweek/The Daily Beast where she called Karl Lagerfeld "overrated" and questions whether he was "spread too thin"? Karl Lagerfeld sure does. And he's still pissed about it. During a press conference yesterday in Tokyo, he didn't hold back when asked about Tina Brown and Newsweek.

Remember that article Robin Givhan wrote for Newsweek/The Daily Beast where she called Karl Lagerfeld "overrated" and questions whether he was "spread too thin"? Karl Lagerfeld sure does. And he's still pissed about it. During a press conference yesterday in Tokyo, he didn't hold back when asked about Tina Brown and Newsweek.

"First of all, Tina Brown's magazine is not doing well at all...She is dying" Lagerfeld said, according to WWD. He reportedly went on to question the credibility of Givhan's story. Then he went for the jugular, saying, "I'm sorry for Tina Brown, who was such a success at 'Vanity Fair,' to go down with a shitty little paper like this. I'm sorry."

Do you think Karl is really sorry? Yeah...
