Emily Ratajkowski Gets Naked, People Get Angry: A Puzzling Timeline (Photos)
When model/actress Emily Ratajkowski ditches her clothes, things heat up — including it seems, people’s tempers. Read on for a history of Ratajkowski’s tendency to spark anger with her naked form.
The Bare Facts: Ratajkowski busted onto the scene big-time in 2013, loaning her breasts to the video for the Robin Thicke tune “Blurred Lines.” And unlike the song itself, nobody doubted their authenticity.
So Who’s Complaining? A lot of people, actually. Like the song, the video was branded by some as sexist.
The Bare Facts: In a show of naked sisterhood with Kim Kardashian, Ratajkowski posed for a topless selfie with the reality TV queen in March, featuring both women sans blouses and flipping the bird.
So Who’s Complaining? Media personality Piers Morgan, who took to Twitter and hissed, “Just a thought @KimKardashian @emrata – but you could always try wearing a little dignity?” The pundit added, “RIP Feminism.”
The Bare Facts: In July, Ratajkowski appeared nude in a photo-shoot as Lady Godiva for Harper’s Bazaar.The shoot was acompanied by an interview with Ratajkowski by feminist author Naomi Wolf.
So Who’s Complaining? Morgan, again, who tweeted in response to the photos, “Do you want me to buy you some clothes? You look freezing.”
The Bare Facts: Photographer Jonathan Leder prepares to release a book of photos he shot of Ratajkowski in 2012. The book, slated for a December 2016 release, features numerous photos of Ratajkowski in various states of undress.
So Who’s Complaining? In a shocking twist that perhaps nobody saw coming, Ratajkowski herself. In a multi-part Twitter vent, Ratajkowski grouses that the photos are being used without her permission, and calls the book “a violation.”
