A Horrifying Timeline of Terry Richardson Allegations, From Trash Cans to Tampon Tea


Yet another model came out with yet another set of disgusting claims against fashion’s creepiest photographer yesterday, and they were disturbingly similar to the myriad of others that have been revealed in recent years. But the sad truth is that they’ll probably suffer a similar fate.

In the past, trigger warning stories like this have done basically fuck all to convince people not to seek out his arguably very mediocre camera work. Following the anti-Terry petition last year that made headlines everywhere, he’s stayed on the A-OK list of everyone from Vogue and H&M to Jared Leto and even the fashion world’s dual sprit animals Lupita Nyong’o and Cara Delevingne. Only two weeks ago we said it seems for every model or celebrity who continues to work with the legendary creep, there is someone who refuses to do so again. But more and more it’s seeming the other way around — for everyone who discredits him, there’s another model or even Hollywood darling lining up to take her place.

A Google search for “Terry Richardson allegations” now yields 82,400 results. But that doesn’t mean the stories of those brave enough to come forth should be lost in SEO ranking algorithms. Let’s recap the decade’s most sickening Richardson revelations, shall we?

Terry’s intern Alex (2004): A decade ago the Observer published an article about a photographer that not many people outside of fashion world had heard of. Ahead of Terry Richardson’s now-infamous Terry World exhibition, Manhattan journalist Phoebe Eaton described, among shots of anonymous models sucking off Uncle Terry, his intern Alex going down on him from inside a trash can while wearing a diamond “Slut” tiara (“It’s Sesame Street!” Mr. Richardson explained with a chuckle.)

No one man should have all that powerCollapse )
