Terry Richardson outed as sex pest

Check out the accusations directed at fashion photographer Terry Richardson which appeared on Jezebel:
It's gross but unfortunately not surprising. Anyone with half a foot in the fashion industry is aware of Richardson's reputation,. There's an account in Sara Ziff's documentary about the modelling industry by a fellow model in which she refers to a shoot where she was asked to perform sexual acts which, while she didn't name names, had all the hallmarks of a Richardson shoot on it. I also heard a story relating to a famous top model recently.
Of course, Richardson is a phenomenally talented and successful fashion photographer. (I, for one, love his work, but cannot condone his methods.) The question is, will these allegations go mainstream and affect his career?
