Model Says Terry Richardson Offered Her a Vogue Shoot for Sex


Model Emma Appleton posted a screenshot of a message she says is from Terry Richardson, offering her a chance to be featured in a Vogue shoot in exchange for sex.

Appleton tweeted the screenshot on Sunday. She responded to several followers afterwards, telling one person “I’ve been modelling for 5 years and I’ve never had this before, it doesn’t make it okay,” according to Gothamist.

Vogue has responded, via a statement to Buzzfeed. “We have no plans to work with him in the future,” said Hildy Kuryk, communications director for Vogue U.S.

The model who posted the Sunday’s allegation, Emma Appleton, told BuzzFeed that the message came from Terry Richardson’s Facebook account.
“This is obviously a fake. Terry did not send this text,” said a spokesperson for Richardson, Candice Marks.
But Appleton, who later deleted the message, and whose account now appears deleted, insisted to BuzzFeed that it is authentic. She said she deleted the image because she doesn’t want “abuse or attention.”
