Warning: This post contains details of sexual assault. 

Alexander Wang has released a new statement addressing the sexual assault allegations against him, writing he “will do better.”

Last December, the 37-year-old designer was accused of groping British model Owen Mooney. From there, multiple people have come forward with allegations against Wang, both anonymously and on-the-record to The Guardian, Business of Fashion, The BBCThe New York Times, and The Cut. In February, high-profile attorney Lisa Bloom announced she was representing 10 men with allegations against Wang. 

“A number of individuals have come forward recently to raise claims against me regarding my past personal behavior. I support their right to come forward, and I’ve listened carefully to what they had to say. It was not easy for them to share their stories, and I regret acting in a way that caused them pain,” Wang writes. “While we disagree on some of the details of these personal interactions, I will set a better example and use my visibility and influencer to encourage others to recognize harmful behaviors. Life is about learning and growth, and now that I know better, I will do better.” In his latest statement, Wang has dropped some of the gaslighting language and dismissive tone, though it arguably falls short of an apology. He expressed regret that his behavior caused pain and pledged to "do better" now that he "knows better." And while he says he supports the right of his accusers to come forward, he clarified that he disagrees "on some of the details of these personal interactions." Bloom posted to Twitter in response to Wang’s statement. “My clients had the opportunity to speak their truth to him and expressed their pain and hurt," she wrote, "We acknowledge Mr. Wang’s apology and we are moving forward. We have no further comment on this matter.”

The pandemic and subsequent stay-at-home regulations have led to an increase in domestic violence. If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline (US) and National Domestic Abuse Helpline (UK) to find out how to get help. You are not alone.⁠
