Terry Richardson whines about being axed from Condé Nast

According to a report from The Telegraph, notorious 52-year-old photographer Terry Richardson has been banned from working with all of Condé Nast's global publications, including Vogue, Vanity Fair, and W.

In the aftermath of worldwide sexual abuse allegations including rape against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, the ban on Richardson has now extended to properties across Condé Nast International, the Daily Telegraph reported Monday.

Following on from horrifying allegations about Harvey Weinstein, many have questioned why photographer Terry Richardson has been allowed to continue working in the fashion industry despite multiple allegations that he has exploited models.

The move is believed to be in response to a Sunday Times story which asked why Richardson was "still feted by fashionistas".

Accusation of harassment and sexual exploitation by models have followed Richardson throughout his career, which he has always denied. (Vogue, at the time, said they had "no plans").

A spokesman for Richardson told the Telegraph last week that "You are basing a story off of random comments on Instagram and old stories that have already been addressed".

Following the Conde Nast declaration, Richardson's spokesperson claimed that all of his subjects "participated consensually" in the acts that they alleged against him. "I have never used an offer of work or a threat of rebuke to coerce someone into something that they did not want to do", he said.

"I give everyone that I work with enough respect to view them as having ownership of their free will and making their decisions accordingly, and as such, it has been hard to see myself as a target of revisionist history".

Richardson has worked with artists like Beyoncé, Lady Gaga and he directed the controversial video for the song Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus, in which she simulated sex while swinging around on a demolition ball.
