Julia Fox defends walking Alexander Wang runway during NYFW

Julia Fox has no regrets.

The “Uncut Gems” star, 33, kicked up some controversy last week when she sported a sheer dress in Alexander Wang’s first New York Fashion Week show since being accused of sexual assault in 2020 — and she recently spoke out on TikTok defending her decision to walk the runway.

Twitter user @juliafoxsource shared a screenshot of a comment Fox wrote — and apparently later deleted — in reply to a fan on the social media platform, writing “julia speaks on her supporting and walking for alexander wang.”

“2 b frank I love cancel culture but we do need to leave room for rehabilitation & for those who put in the work & heal & learn from their mistakes,” Fox said in reply to a fan who asked if walking in the show went “against everything you stand for.”

Loiben then went on to reply to Fox’s comment in her own video, with the TikTok user expressing her disappointment because she felt Wang had not done “any of these things” in order to move on from the allegations.

Many other fans had spoken out after Kanye West’s ex made her remark, like one who tweeted, “what i hate most about Julia Fox’s comments about Alexander Wang is using the Rehabilitation excuse. Everyone knows the first step to Rehab is admitting you have a problem. He has 11 claims against him & counting. Julia Fox is promoting Alexander Wang shamelessly.”

Others pointed out the hypocrisy of social media users canceling Fox — who has consistently worn Wang’s designs over the years — but not mentioning other high-profile attendees at the show.

“If ya gonna drag Julia fox for supporting Alexander wang (which idk why she attended his show and participated in it tbh that was a dumb move on her end) don’t forget to ‘cancel’ these people too,” one fan wrote, including a screenshot of an article mentioning Anna Wintour, Nikita Dragun and Ava Max being present at Wang’s “Cupid’s Door” themed presentation.

Wang faced accusations of sexual misconduct from multiple people in 2020, giving a statement to Page Six Style at the time that called the claims “baseless and grotesquely false.”

He later seemed to change his stance, releasing another statement in 2021 promising to “do better.”

“It was not easy for them to share their stories, and I regret acting in a way that caused them pain,” he said of his accusers, adding, “While we disagree on some of the details of these personal interactions, I will set a better example and use my visibility and influence to encourage others to recognize harmful behaviors.”
