The German-born designer apparently took issue with Merkel's policy of allowing more than one million asylum within the country since the migrant crisis of 2015.
Evoking guilt of the Holocaust as the impetus for Merkel to invite unlimited numbers of asylum seekers into Germany during the migrant crisis, Lagerfeld said: "One can not - even if there are decades between them - kill millions of Jews and then bring millions of their worst enemies in their place", Kronen Zeitung reports.

Lagerfeld has shied away from revealing his true date of birth, but according to Biography.com, it likely falls on September 10, 1933, in Hamburg, Germany - the same year former German Chancellor Adolf Hitler rose to power.
Lagerfeld also revealed he knew someone who took in a young Syrian, and after a few days of being in the German home, the refugee allegedly said, "the greatest thing Germany invented was the Holocaust". Speaking out against the refugee policy in Germany, he blamed Merkel, describing it as her effort to look good to the public. "She had no need to take another million to improve her image as the wicked stepmother after the Greek crisis". "Suddenly, we see the pastor's daughter", he added, making reference to the chancellor's father, who was a Protestant pastor.
