Over the past few days, fashion designer Marc Jacobs has been in the centre of reports about him hosting an orgy. Unsurprisingly, the news was sensationalised everywhere, but not without him taking notice of headlines that were blown out of proportion.

Page Six wrote about the 10-person orgy, calling it "wild." In response, Marc did not deny or confirm the incident, but took to Instagram to alter the adjective.

"Wild??? I'd say "MILD," he wrote in the caption of a screenshot of the Page Six headline, which has now been changed to read "Inside Marc Jacobs' 10-person orgy."

 

A day before the Page Six report, New York Post published an article by Maureen Callahan that read "What's wrong with Marc Jacobs? Mystery of business, struggles, bizarre behaviour" as the headline. The article, which appears to criticise Marc's career and personal life, doesn't mention the recent orgy rumours, but cites Marc's homosexuality and his past with drug abuse.

In response, Marc wrote a letter to Maureen.

 

An open letter to MAUREEN CALLAHAN Girl, I think I understand your pain. You're a sick woman. It must be such a sad, unfulfilling and lonely existence to get paid for "writing" (I use the term loosely) an article put together from out of context information "written" by other journalists over a period of time, for different periodicals, in different countries. I can't even imagine your suffering having made a life and name working for what has to be the worlds worst, trashiest, and most irresponsible of "newspapers" (LOL)! I can imagine the powerful and fulfilling feeling you must feel with each piece you "write" that helps yourself and your readers feel better about their lives by putting down others who are so fortunate as to have been blessed with a genuine passion for creation. Those creative individuals who like everyone else has feelings, a sexual appetite, "issues", character defects, and professional ups and downs. If you were a real writer and not the parasite feeding off of the successes and failures of others I wouldn't bother writing my thoughts here. I do feel sorry for you. Please know you are in my prayers. I hope you will someday find something, somewhere that gives you pleasure...and not at another's expense. Should that moment happen for you, please don't thank me. I only wish the best for everyone. Even you. Sincerely and disrespectfully, Marc (Jacobs). #lethimwhoiswithoutsincastthefirststone #youwannacomeforme?

Earlier on, Marc posted a topless photo of himself, saying that he will be signing off gay dating app Grindr, writing "Yup. I'm gay. Sometimes I enjoy sex. Sometimes!"

 

Yup. I'm gay. Sometimes I enjoy sex. Sometimes! #stillonlyhuman #callmemarc #yourstotry...maybe.

While you sit back and try to make sense of the whole situation, take note that there is one recently-published article that Marc does approve of. It is entitled "Can everyone leave Marc Jacobs alone?"
