Karl Lagerfeld Didn't Call Francois Hollande an Idiot

Karl Lagerfeld "Obviously" Didn't Call the French President an "Idiot"

Karl Lagerfeld said he didn't call French President Francois Hollande an "idiot" in a recent interview with Marie Claire España, claiming that his quote was lost in translation.

"Obviously I did not say that," Lagerfeld said on French television, responding to demands for an apology from French politician — and Hollande's former partner — Segolene Royal on Sunday. "So I don't have to apologize because I didn't say it."

Lagerfeld said in reality, he finds President Hollande "funny, spiritual and very, very intelligent," and said the idea that he would insult Hollande is "frankly absurd."

Be that as it may, a translation of Lagerfeld's interview with the Spanish magazine included a criticism of Hollande's new 75 percent income tax on French citizens who earn more than €1 million (around $1.3 million) a year.

"It's a disaster," the translation said. "He wants to punish (the rich) and of course they leave and no one invests."
