Emily Ratajkowski opened up about the Netflix film Blonde controversy, responding to one commenter who called her a “fake feminist.”
In a new TikTok, Emily began, “I’ve heard a lot about this Marilyn Monroe movie Blonde that I haven’t seen yet, but I’m not surprised to hear it’s another movie that fetishizes female pain, even in Death.”
“We love to fetishize female pain. Look at Amy Winehouse, look at Britney Spears, look at how obsessed we are with Diana’s death, look at how we’re obsessed with dead girls and serial killers. Watch any episode of CSI and it’s like this crazy fetishization of female pain and death.”
“I think as women, I can say for myself that I’ve learned to fetishize my own hurt and pain in life so that it feels like something that can be cared for, that’s kind of sexy and like, you know, ‘I’m like, oh, shitty girl, whatever.'”
“But I’ve thought about it, and you know what’s hard to fetishize? Fury. Anger is hard to fetishize. So I have a suggestion. I think we all need to be a little more pissed off. It’ll be me In my bitch era – 2022, baby, is my bitch era. That’s, 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 stance feels very wrong” by lip-synching to the Lana Del Rey song “Ride” — specifically that one Line that reads “I”. I’m tired of feeling like crazy.”
“READ MY BOOK and stop telling women they are fake feminists, ITS madness,” she added in the caption, referencing her book of essays, My Body.
