The French Higher Audiovisual Council says it will investigate remarks by fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld in the wake of his interview this past weekend on the French Saturday night talk show, ‘Salut Les Terriens.’

The broadcast watchdog said it would also investigate the production after having received nearly 700 complaints after the program, saying Lagerfeld’s remarks were insensitive to Holocaust survivors and their families, as well as immigrants arriving in Germany in recent years.

German-born Lagerfeld upset viewers with comments about Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision to accept Syrian refugees and immigrants, according to reports by British news outlets The Guardian and The Times UK.

“You cannot kill millions of Jews and then take in millions of their worst enemies afterwards, even if there are decades [between the two events],” he was quoted as saying.

“Merkel had already million and millions (of immigrants) who are well integrated and who work and all is well. . . She had no need to take another million to improve her image as the wicked stepmother after the Greek crisis.”

  1. I think German should be ashame to prononce “Jews” and less talking about those ignorants Muslims! Kill Six millions Jews , and receive immigrants muslims , that what they deserve! Germany full of terrorists and imbeciles, let the Nobel’s Prices go to Israel!

  2. There is nothing wrong with his comment. Essentially, he said not only did you try to exterminate a group of people, but now you’re welcoming their worst enemy to your country. People need to stop being so sensitive and putting a negative spin on everything.
