OMG that dress!

Yesterday I was not even remotely surprised to hear that yet another model has come forward with allegations of abuse from beloved celebrity photographer/ fashion institution, Terry Richardson.  (TW: Terry Richardson) I’ve lost count of the number of models who have said that Terry has sexually harassed them and acted inappropriately towards them.  He is a known predator who shows no sign of stopping his ways, this all on top of a photography “style” that relies on objectifying and degrading women.  His treatment of female models isn’t exactly new, and there have been plenty of calls for him to be stopped before.  We can sign a million change.org petitions, but Terry Richardson just won’t fucking die.
Here’s the problem: normal people like us just don’t hire big name fashion photographers.  We don’t have magazines to publish, ads to sell, or movies/singles to promote.  We simply aren’t the ones who keep him in business.  So, I propose instead of just making a fuss online, we put our money where our mouse is.  Terry does a spread in your magazine, we’re not gonna buy it.  Terry shoots your ad campaign, we’re not gonna buy it.  Terry directs your music video, we’re not gonna watch it.  I call for a boycott of anyone who hires Terry Richardson.  From now on, you hire him, we stop spending money on you.
This is gonna be hard, considering that a lot of our favorites out there work with Terry, including the queen Beyoncé.  We’re gonna have to skip issues of our favorite mags, miss out on concerts, turn off our favorite TV shows, and ignore things we would otherwise really, really, really want to take part of, all because someone involved agreed to work with Terry.  But this is the only way we the low-level consumers can stand up to this monster.
Spread the word.  Send letters, emails, tweets, write it on the fucking sidewalk with chalk, #NoMoreTerry. http://nomoreterry.tumblr.com/ View high resolution
