Breaking News: Terry Richardson Is A Pervert

Terry Richardson Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Terry Richardson Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Not sure if this is really “news”, but apparently, Terry Richardson is a perv. Um, have you seen his photos? Was there any doubt about him being a dirty person who probably didn’t hold women in the highest regard?

What’s different now is that the proof is not only in the photos, there are many women finally coming forward about their disturbing experiences with the famed photographer. The ladies at Jezebel broke the story and are “listening” – that is, if you had, or know of someone who had, sexually harassing contact with Mr. Richardson, they are taking submissions. You can read more about it on Jezebel:

Meet Terry Richardson, The World’s Most F—ked Up Fashion Photographer

Exclusive: More Models Come Forward With Allegations Against Fashion Photographer

I was never really a fan of Terry Richardson because his perverted-ness came through in his photos – now that I know how he actually treats women on set, I have utterly no respect for the man.  It’s a little pathetic who people put on pedestals because they are “cool” without actually looking at their character.  For me, Richardson is up there with American Apparel’s Dov Charney.  I wonder if this will have any effect on his career…let’s hope it does.

    Well said, Gabriella. While this behavior is certainly not shocking, it is still completely unacceptable. I never could stand Terry Richardson, and I hope big magazines like Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar will set the example and stop working with him and giving him that level of credibility. I immediately made the Dov Charney connection as well, and I have loathed him ever since I read the 2004 Jane interview where he masturbated in front of the reporter. Disgusting.

    Thanks Joanna. I hope the big mags stop working with him too – if they don’t it really won’t be good for their credibility.

    i figured the “breaking news” was sarcastic. his shoot for the pirelli calendar gives me the creeps. Its like seeing women through the in the mind of a dirty man who lives for upskirts and jerks off to the girls he sees walking on the street, the only difference is that he actually tricks them into rub&tugs.

    Hi Amy One,
    Yes, just a bit of sarcasm :) He’s so gross I can’t believe he’s been able to get away with this for so long.

    Well, as a huge fan of Terry’s work I will naturally defend him.

    These girls know exactly what they are getting themselves into. Many of them have met Terry at adult industry expos. Hes got money and these girls wanna get at it by coming out with their “stories of abuse” now that some bitter ex-model started clawing at him.

    I understand why one would be offended by his work but that is his aesthetic. I can’t really blame the guy when hes got all these power hungry girls throwing themselves at him in hopes of becoming the next IT girl.

    One last point, many of his more “raunchy” works that feature girls sucking his dick and what not are shot with PORN STARS, NOT YOUR 16 YEAR OLD KARLI KLOSS’types. That’s what porn stars do, they like it. Right? No one is holding a gun to these girls heads, it’s up to them to defend themselves.

    Many artists are fucked up, some more than others. If they weren’t they would be normal, and who wants to be normal?

    No, the girls don’t throw themselves at him. He pressures them to take their clothes off, or to fondle him.

    He recently told a girl, she would not get anywhere in modelling because she repeatedly turned him down on his offers. He said he is a pervert, and everyone in the fashion industry is. So if she wants to work with him, basically she better do what he requests.

    It’s just sick. And I am glad the girl stood her ground and kept it professional.
