Fashion Blog Launches #NoMoreTerry Campaign To Stop Hiring Terry Richardson

  • Fashion blog OMG That Dress has launched a campaign called #NoMoreTerry to boycott brands (cough Marc Jacobs cough) and publications (cough Vogue cough) that hire photographer Terry Richardson, who has repeatedly been accused of sexually abusing young women. #NoMoreTerry comes just days after former model Charlotte Waters, 24, outed herself to Vocativ as the Reddit poster who was allegedly sexually assaulted by Richardson during a modeling session five years ago.
