Emily Ratajkowski tells people who get sexually harassed: ‘I was famous. I was famously sexy’

Model Emily Ratajkowski came out to San Francisco’s Dolores Park over the weekend for her latest fundraising event called the #DisruptMeDay. She spoke with Gizmodo before the event, saying, “It’s my face. It’s what I do. It’s my job. And it’s funny. But it’s in such a sensational place.”

She then shifted gears from being public about her love of modeling to a much darker subject: sex.

“It’s funny because I’m not sexy enough, like that is not how I was marketed, but I wasn’t just famous; I was famously sexy,” Ratajkowski continued. “And it’s just so strange to me that it’s weird to me that people who are 22 and really finding their voices are slut-shaming me? And we’re in a time where shaming women is so natural, and embracing self-love is so unnatural. It’s so weird because it’s my job.”

The size-6 model, who appeared in Robin Thicke’s 2013 “Blurred Lines” video, has been vocal about her political views before, but this marks the first time she’s spoken up about being victimized on the job.
