Pervy uncle Terry's never really hidden the fact that he is a misogynistic creep. He's fashion's very own Quagmire. Famous for the line, "It's not who you know, it's who you blow. I don't have a hole in my jeans for nothing," he has long exemplified a seedy side to the fashion industry. His iconic status as a leading fashion photographer - he's even shot Obama - has meant the unsettling approach to his shoots has been overlooked for a long time, with him often portrayed as being branded as a controversial kooky character who's all smiles, plaid and thumbs up, rather than 'an actual' sexual predator.

It seems the more that is revealed about pervy uncle Terry the more disturbing it gets. Recently models Coco Rocha, Jamie Peck and Rie Rasmussen have spoken out about his behaviour and this has prompted much debate and a petition on change.org. "More awareness needs to be brought to light that Terry Richardson is negatively influencing media with his supposed exploit and abuse of certain models, mainstream degrading pornographic imagery, and inappropriate and unprofessional behaviour," the petition's founder Alice Ehrenfried has written.

H&M have already responded to a tweet linking to a Jezebel article on twitter by saying that, "Currently we're not working with Terry Richardson." Will others follow suit? Terry's been working with top brands and editors for years and his connections with fashion's elite have long granted that his 'predatory' behaviour's overlooked. Is that about to change, or will the world once again be distracted by Miley Cyrus' ass?
