Oh my god- this is disgusting! What a horrid, horrid bunch of men! It seems to me that Brunel and Epstein could be pals with Terry Richardson with the way they treat women. Honestly though, you hear stories of sex trafficking in Asia but not as much in America/ Latin America/ and Europe but as this story goes to show, this doesn't mean it doesn't happen. I really hope that these men get what they deserve- a life time in jail to think long and hard about their crime (although that doesn't mean they will repent).
Oh my GOD! I've actually heard of MC2 so this is so crazy... I really hope they get punished for all the awful things they're doing.
I can't believe that any designer or publication would work with anything involving him. And they must have known, everyone knew. This is truly disgusting.
I just can't believe that the general public doesn't know about this...
The public, the industry, everyone knows. The documentary by Diane Sawyer was aired on NATIONAL television. And still the man doesn't face any repercussions and goes on raping and molesting young girls and engaging in sexual trafficking.
I always thought that the sterotype of older people molesting the little 16-18 year old models for work was true...
OMG that's so horrible, disgusting ! no words for that !!!!They need to be punished !
I feel sorry for the victims..
Happens all the time in the modelling industry.
You wonder how Naomi got those blood diamonds huh? the modelling industry has a reputation for being a high class escort agency and its not very far from the truth.
I suspect most *big names* have done it but tfs is too fanatical to have a fruitfull discussion on this subject.
Reading this makes me feel so disgusted...
I wish you were wrong, but I know unfortunately that's not the case.
^ I wish Retailqueen was wrong too but sadly as she pointed out it happens all the time. Although it is up to us, the consumer, to make an educated decision to call those in the industry out for allowing this to continue. Really, you would think in this day and age men like this would get locked away but no, they are allowed to roam free. Ughh... this makes me so mad!
terry is a baby comparing to the sharks who pretend to be modeling scouts....
this case is nothing new, so it won't change anything. they do the crime but not the time. the only way to be safe is not to allow yours daughter, sister, etc to ever model....
^ It still doesn't mean that Terry shouldn't be punished, just as these men should be. Either way they are sexually harassing women and helping fuel the sex-trafficking trade which is vile. However you do have a point, that the only way to be safe is to not allow your daughter/sister/friend model, their are some real creepers out their. Although I still believe we need to call these people out and hold them accountable for their crimes.
^of course they should be punished, and i actually laughed that J. Casablancas was asked about this, since he is also the sick one... but fashion became money making machine, and its all about bloody money. maybe one guy will end up in prison, but thats about it.
someone wrote that people tfs is too fanatical to have discussion about this, and i agree, but its not about tfs, it is about the fact that people know. even 12 y.o. girls know. their parents know. editors know. designers know. we know. and now what? who will speak up?
unfortunately this is the reality of the fashion industry. I dont think he's the only person involved in this kind of racket..there must be several
^ I wish it wasn't the reality of the fashion industry though... it breaks my heart every time I read stories like this. Its not just those on TFS but our whole society, people choose to ignore it rather then stand up for whats right just because they can't be bothered to do anything. They know its wrong but are far too lazy and think that someone will solve the issue for them.
^You're right, it's so upsetting. I can't even imagine how these poor girls were felling. These guys should be severely punished for what they done.
heres the thing... you all remember the case of natalee holloway.... while its normal for me to think that she was a victim and i felt v. sorry for her family, cos when u r 18 u can act out sometimes, but u should ever end up dead.....
now, on the other hand many people from all around the globe blame her, her friends, her mom..... everyone but the real killer...
look at this post http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1307456/board/thread/140435828
do u see where im going?
people don't care. they may say they do, but they don't. some blame the models, their parents, everyone but the creeps. and that is wrong with this world.
