Several models accuse fashion designer Alexander Wang of sexual assault, reports Women Wear Daily.
Sh*t Model Management posted accounts from several models earlier in the week.
“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. It is important to show your support to these victims by unfollowing Alexander Wang and boycotting his clothing line,” its post read.
A spokeswoman declined to comment to WWD on Tuesday.
According to InStyle, anonymous allegations accuse Wang of giving victims water laced with MDMA, forcing them to attend after parties and making unwanted sexual advances.
InStyle also reports these types of allegations surfaced previously from rapper Azealia Banks on Instagram. The posts have since disappeared.
The Model Alliance joined the debate, posting a statement on Instagram which read “The fashion industry’s lack of transparency and accountability leaves all models vulnerable to abuse, regardless of their sex or gender identity,” the Daily Beast reported.
