As you all may have guessed, I spend a lot of time on Twitter. A LOT. I like to know what people are up to. So, as I’m “patrolling”, I come across this on my feed:
THAT’S RIGHT, KIDDIES! THAT “LEGENDARY” PIECE OF SHIT, TERRY RICHARDSON, STRIKES AGAIN! And this poor model must be a rookie because how dare she be offended by his disgusting and unprofessional behavior to the point of posting it on Twitter?! The injustice of it all! (/sarcasm) She, in her subsequent tweets, is genuinely shocked and confused as to how the way Terry carries on is acceptable behavior. Because apparently it is, if media has been teaching us anything! This was especially emphasized when she received responses like this from comparable ass wipes:
Really, dude?! See, it’s totally not a big deal to folks like Carlton who figure, if you don’t like the heat, you should just stay out of the kitchen. The heat being blatant and unyielding abuse and the kitchen being, well, for a woman? THE ENTIRE FUCKING PLANET. Can ignorant men do us all a favor and stop acting like lack of control over their gross urges is anyone’s fault but their own and that they DON’T need to check themselves?! Stop telling women to just “buck up” and start policing yourselves as well as your fellow man. Sweetheart.
Furthermore, can the “industry” get it together enough to stop supporting this sort of predatory behavior that is, usually in Terry’s case, illegal? It seems like no matter how many women come out of the woodwork to expose this guy, people continue to turn a blind eye. Yeah, I’m talking about all your faves who’ve shot/hung with him for a slice of fame (hello, Jared and Lupita). There is nothing special about Terry Richardson that the industry didn’t actually give him. They need to go and give that shit to someone else and let Richardson end up in jail the way he should. Actually, scratch that; I hope, the next time he victimizes a woman (because he WILL), she bites his dick off. Clean off. And then beats him with it.
*Update: Emma Appleton has just deleted her Twitter due to both fear for her career for being “difficult” and likely harassment. Since, you know, God forbid a person should defend themselves, right?
