Noted photographer Terry Richardson has reportedly been blacklisted from working with magazines including Vogue, GQ and Glamour after years of withstanding sexual harassment allegations.
The publishing powerhouse Condé Nast sent out a letter to their staff saying they can no longer work with the fashion photographer and any photos commissioned but not yet published should be “killed or substituted with other material,” according to the Telegraph.
Richardson — famous for his sexy photo shoots and directing Miley Cyrus’ nude “Wrecking Ball” video — has been accused in the past of sexually exploiting and abusing models. He has denied the allegations.
The move comes in the wake of Harvey Weinstein’s firing from his production company over an outpouring of sexual harassment allegations.
Terry Richardson has been accused of sexual harassment many times throughout his career. Could we finally be entering an era where the oft-ignored abuse of power will no longer be tolerated? Let’s hope so.
