Last week, model Emma Appleton tweeted a message sent to her allegedly from Terry Richardson's Facebook account. The message read: "If i can fuck you i will book you in ny for a.shoot for Vogue."

This is not the first time Richardson has been accused of sexual misconduct, but in this case at least, he seems to be in the clear. Facebook has confirmed that the message is fake. A spokesperson from the social media platform told Fashionista that the account violated their terms of service and has been removed. 

Facebook's verdict is in agreement with that of Theo Yedinsky, the "forensic expert" Richardson hired to prove that the message didn't come from him.

Even if Richardson didn't ask Appleton for sex, his reputation made the story easy to believe, and the damage may already be done for Richardson's career. Following the scandal, a Vogue spokesperson said, "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."
