Awkward metaphor news: Hermès CEO likens LVMH’s buyout attempts to ‘rape’

At a press conference held at the Hermès headquarters in Paris this morning, CEO Patrick Thomas wooed the crowd with a metaphor about LVMH’s recent, aggressive takeover attempts:

“If you want to seduce a beautiful woman, you don’t start by raping her from behind,” he said.

Hmmmm. Okay. But like, how do you seduce a beautiful woman Patrick? Lots of hugging and caressing, perhaps?
