Thanks to our writing campaign protesting the unconscionable behavior of fashion/perv photographer Terry Richardson, Condé Nast’s CEO Charles Townsend has responded to our concerns. Note that Mr. Townsend is “appalled” by what he now knows about Richardson’s conduct. Yay Chuck! And yay Andrea!

Thank you, Andrea. I’ve received more email on the subject this morning than I can read, unfortunately. I have forwarded it to our fashion people here. They make the creative decisions. I’m appalled at what I have read. Respectfully, C. Townsend
