The Model That Terry Richardson Sexually Assaulted Is Reporting Him To The Police

I bet these two had a lot to talk about


The anonymous model, now revealed as 24-year old Charlotte Waters, who recounted her disgusting story of sexual assault at the hands of Terry Richardson is now reporting him to the police. Good.

Perhaps most disturbing about Waters’s account is that Richardson’s assistant — a woman — was present for the entire thing. And afterwards, when Waters says she was in shock, they handled it with familiarity. “It seemed like they had done this a million times,” she says. Still, typical of victims of sexual assault, Waters felt embarrassed about what had happened to her and was unsure that she wanted it to be public. So she shared her story anonymously on Reddit, because as she says, these assaults “will likely continue to happen until [Richardson’s] dick falls off.”

In addition to coming out publicly, Waters is reporting the incident to the police — difficult, she says, because she never explicitly told Richardson to stop. “I was always very hesitant about [reporting Richardson] because I know nothing can really be done,” she tells Vocativ. “So Richardson’s off the hook. It kind of sucks.” One has to wonder why, in the face of these kinds of accusations, anyone still works Richardson — let alone the high-profile celebrities he’s photographed, like Beyonce, Lea Michele and Kate Moss. But Waters says she understands. “I don’t put any blame on the celebrities that have been photographed by him because they have no way of knowing the truth,” she says. “Until people expose what’s he’s really like, how are his clients going to know?”

So if you're reading this and are more concerned about the timing rather than the actual sexual assualt or the thousands of sexual asaults that go unreported each year because women are either too afraid or too embarrassed to come forward, kill yourself. I hate to be the one to break to you like this, but we don't need any more of you walking around. Do us all a favor. I honestly don't know why this still needs to be said, but here it goes: Don't rape women. Trust me, you can live your whole life without doing that. Lots of us have managed to pretty well so far. And while we're at it, don't hit women either. I mean, you know, unless she's into that kinda thing or it's on her itemized pricelist.
