Celeste Barber has revealed that Emily Ratajkowski blocked her on Instagram after she poked fun at one of her G-string photo sessions.

The 40-year-old comedian once caused tension with the American supermodel last year when she uploaded a parody image recreate one of the supermodel’s quirky G-string pants.

She jokingly captioned the post “we are sick of you protesting our bodies! Also, here’s one of mine as she poses against the wall like Emrata.

The move has sparked a backlash from fans, with some calling it a harmless and humorous joke, while others calling it “problematic” and “problematic” tone. lack of women”.

Speaking to Nova’s Fitzy and Wippa, Celeste revealed that the supermodel actually blocked her after what happened.

“Did you get a response from Ratajkowski?” she was asked.

“I don’t think Emily is a fan,” Celeste replied.

“It’s okay, she’s allowed not to love. But she blocked me.

“If Cindy Crawford agrees with that, then I do too. Thanks to the world’s greatest supermodel, one is allowed not to like.”

“I was really inundated with people who liked to send me pictures for me to copy.”

Celeste is known for recreating photo sessions of famous women with stereotypical “ideal” bodies, intended to subvert popular beauty ideals.

At the time of posting the controversial parody, her followers had mixed opinions about the photo.

“So sad to see this caption. As women, we can rage against men and the market’s disregard for sex AND also choose to (re)represent our bodies in a sexually suggestive way,” one person said.

“I think sometimes you over-simplify what’s going on and your ‘light-hearted’ pokes cross the line into old-school anti-gender feminism and end up making women be ashamed,” wrote another.

While one argued: “This caption and many of the comments here are disappointingly offensive to women. How a woman chooses to use her own body, sensuality, and sexuality is entirely up to her. Hating other women for the way they choose to do so is harmful.

Others used the post to urge women to “stop tearing each other apart”.

“Try your best to be a feminist, you’ve come back to the deviant. this is really embarrassing. your whole hoax is demeaning women while pretending to be weird and making fun of yourself. do better,” said one.

“Both of these can be true. This is a disappointing and cheap caption, Celeste,” another agreed.

Another woman said: “This caption is full of the smell of people telling women ‘what to expect’ when they go out in miniskirts and are sexually assaulted…please double-check the error your inner…”

Not everyone was offended by this parody. TV presenter Sophie Monk and UK reality TV star Louise Thompson both commented with a series of smiley emojis.

“Funny,” commented one user, while another said Celeste was “my queen”.
