In one account, model Owen Mooney posted a video to TikTok describing an incident where Wang openly groped his growing at New York nightclub in 2017. Mooney said, “I was by myself at one point and this guy next to me obviously took advantage of the fact that no one could fucking move and he just started like, touching me up.”
The model added, “And fully like, up my leg, in my crotch, like it made me freeze completely because I was in such shock. I looked to my left to see who it was, and it was this really famous fashion designer. Like, I couldn’t believe that he was doing that to me. It made me go into even more shock. It was really fucked up.”
Owen did not call out the designer by in the first video, but later confirmed it was Wang he was referring to in a follow-up post.
