Noted creep and photographer Terry Richardson has been blacklisted by some of the top fashion magazines in the world, the Telegraph reports. The magazines—which include the non-U.S. editions of Vogue, GQ, Vanity Fair and Glamour—operate under Condé Nast International, which addressed sexual harassment and assault allegations brought against the celebrity photographer over the past several years. Fashionista confirmed the company's decision to sever ties with Richardson, and further reported the ban will not affect Condé Nast's U.S.-based titles.
According to the Telegraph, Condé Nast International executive vice president James Woolhouse sent an email to staffers Monday morning, just one day after the UK Times published an article dubbing Richardson as the "Harvey Weinstein of fashion."
"I am writing to you on an important matter," Woolhouse said in the email. "Condé Nast would like to no longer work with the photographer Terry Richardson." He continued on to instruct Condé Nast International on how to handle any materials currently commissioned for Richardson, saying anything in the pipeline should be "killed or substituted with other material."
"Please could you confirm that this policy will be actioned in your market effective immediately," the email concluded. "Thank you for your support in this matter."
Richardson has yet to respond to this reported ban, but knowing his history, something tells me dude is gonna deny the allegations that triggered it. That's OK, though. We have the receipts, playboy. Accusations of sexual misconduct first began circulating heavily in 2014, when Richardson was accused of sexual exploitation by numerous models. At the time, Richardson said the allegations were false, and called himself "considerate and respectful" of his subjects.
Anywho, it's about fucking time we get all of these sexual predators out of the paint. Let's keep calling these animals out.
