Model Responds to Terry Richardson's Open Letter: 'Unjustifiable Shit'

Four years ago, former model Jamie Peck wrote a firsthand account of her horrifying experience modeling for Terry Richardson (you may remember reading it; it's the one in which "Uncle Terry" asks to make tea out of the model's tampon before pressuring her into giving him a hand job).
