FakeKarl – one of the best blogs ever, which I’m pretty much convinced is run by the real Karl Lagerfeld – is also imparting some words about Terry Richardson. And dishwashers. And traffic lights! You know, the stuff you really need to know about. Karl-Who-I’m-Convinced-is-Real-Karl notes:
You can’t declare Terry Richardson’s work art. It never was art anyway, you dull-witted Armani-suit-wearing morons. What is it? Well, it’s misogynist porn that doesn’t turn me on. Do you know what turns me on, hm? Dishwashers. I love the sound they make as they churn around and around. But that’s not the point- my point is that Richardson’s work is half the problem, because it’s inherently misogynist, made by a creep who enjoys taking photographs of women on the toilet. It’s an absolute indictment upon the fashion industry that magazines like Vice, Vogue, Purple, etc continue to publish this predator’s work…
In case you didn’t read the above because you’re illiterate and only read twitter: If you support Terry Richardson, you are anti-women. If you publish his work, you are anti-women. If you think him using his position of power to rape women is chic, you are anti-women. For an industry that makes an awful lot of money from women, it’s not exactly a profitable stance, hmm?
That is the first thing I wanted to talk to you about. Secondly, I would like to give you a guide on how to use traffic lights, as you’ll surely encounter these when you attempt “walking”.
Fake Karl/Real Karl – you have once again won my heart away from that scoundrel Roberto Cavalli.
