Another day, another allegation of sexual propositions denied by Terry Richardson’s publicist. It seems that Richardson has a new law suit being thrown his way at least every few weeks, and this one is no different. Model Emma Appleton released a screen shot of a message Terry Richardson allegedly sent her yesterday, offering a Vogue shoot in exchange for sex. While this is disgusting, it has become the norm for these claims to surface, and for them to be swept right under the rug. In the last few months with more and more abusive stories coming to light, the media has picked up on the issue at hand. Richardson has been deemed “the world’s most fucked up fashion photographer,” and rightfully so.
Appleton quickly deleted her screen shot, previous tweets making jabs at the situation, and eventually her Twitter account all together. A Russian model confronted Richardson back in 2010, regarding his abuse and history of taking advantage of newer models because he can.
“The last assignment Terry Richardson had for U.S. Vogue appeared in the July 2010 issue and we have no plans to work with him in the future,” Hildy Kuryk, communications director for U.S. Vogue told TheWrap on Sunday.
So, looks like people are starting to take this seriously, as they should be. How much longer do you think the fashion world will put up with Terry and his womanizing ways?
