Terry Richardson seems like a real prize!
Surprise, surprise -- the high-profile photographer is in hot water over a sexual harassment allegation yet again after a model accused the shutterbug of bribing her with a layout in Vogue magazine in exchange for sexual favors. While there have been a slew of accusations over the years, his career seems to have gone unscathed by the rumors. However, this time Vogue is taking a public stand against the famed and very controversial photog, saying that they will not be working with him the future.
The fashion mag just released this statement, saying, "The last assignment Terry Richardson had for US Vogue appeared in the July 2010 issue and we have no plans to work with him in the future."
Boom! Terry Richardson, you just got served!
Over the weekend, British model Emma Appleton posted a screenshot of a message that is allegedly from Richardson, which says, "If I can f--k you I will book you in [New York] for a shoot for Vogue."
Super classy move!
Since the tweet, Appleton's tweet has deleted her Twitter account. Prior to deleting the account, she wrote, "Beginning to wish I hadn't posted that… it doesn't matter who you are or what the industry is, just be a decent human being. The fact [that] people think this is acceptable blows my f--king mind. See ya."
Richardson, who has worked with the likes of Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus and President Barack Obama, has yet to make a statement on the allegations. However, a representative for him denied the allegations, calling the screenshot "a fake."
Yeah -- we are definitely going to believe that a dude who has been accused of abusing power for years, has depicted himself as having sex with a sheep and plays with tampons, wouldn't try to exchange photos for sex.
“I was a shy kid. ... and now I’m this powerful guy with a boner, dominating all these girls,” Richardson once said.
Yeah ... good thing Richardson isn't objectifying women to satiate his shortcomings.
After this story hits, we hope there are finally some repercussions to the king of creep the, sultan of sex. Hopefully, famous people will stop turning a blind eye to the countless allegations just because he's a "cool dude," and will stop working with him. Using your power to prey on young women -- is not okay!
