Emily Ratajkowski weighed in on the controversy surrounding the Netflix movie blond and responded to a commenter who called her a “fake feminist.”
“We love to fetishize female pain. Look at Amy Winehouse, look at Britney Spears, look at the way we’re obsessed with Diana’s death, the way we’re obsessed with dead girls and serial killers. CSI episode, and it’s like this crazy fetishization of female pain and death.”
“I think as a woman, I mean, I can definitely say for myself that I’ve learned how to give my own pain and my own pain in life fetishes so it feels like something that can be taken care of, that’s kinda sexy, and like, you know, ‘I’m so, oh, fucked up girl, whatever.'”
“But I was thinking about it, and you know what’s kinda hard to fetishize? Anger. Anger is hard to fetishize. So I’ve got a proposition. I think we should all be a little pissed off in my bitch era – 2022, honey, is my bitch era. This is to say, I think we should all be in our bitch era,” she added.
Emily then responded to a comment that read, “‘Blurred Lines’ was terrible for feminism, so her feminist outlook feels very fake” by lip-syncing the Lana Del Rey song “Ride” — specifically the line that goes “I” I’m tired of feeling crazy.”
“READ MY BOOK and stop telling women they are fake feminists. IT’S INSANE,” she added in the caption, referring to her essay book My body.
