*This is a what NOT to do to someone you want as an ally.
a few weeks ago,
i got a dm about a photographer we all know.
before they would even shoot,
a model was asked to send his penis pictures to the said photographer.
after he sent it,
he was told he made it past the “review stage” to qualify.
i was shown all the screenshots between the model and the photographer.
the model felt uncomfortable during the whole shooting process.
the reason he hit me up was to expose said photographer but…
I can’t use the screenshots or say it’s him behind this story.
so i decided to do further investigation.
i looked at the photographer’s ig page and all the videos the model was in.
1. For someone so uncomfortable,
you are letting this photographer oil you down.
He is touching all over that nice ass body and you are letting him.
You are even joking around and smiling.
2. You willingly got naked with no issue at all.
3. At the end of the shoot,
you are recording saying you had “a good shoot” and the photographer “made you feel comfortable”.
Not only that,
the photographer allegedly fed you at some chain restaurant afterward.
i tell him how this footage doesn’t look good for his defense.
how can you accuse someone of all of this,
but you look like a willing participant?
he told me if he was supposed to say he was uncomfortable with a camera in his face?
If you felt uncomfortable,
you should have ended it and requested a refund.
i asked if he signed a contract and well…
since he kinda had no case on his own,
he needed to talk to other models who worked with the photographer.
the model’s beef is he allegedly never got any of the bts footage.
there is alleged bts footage of him naked too.
in a rage,
ended up blocking said photographer.
at the end of the conversation,
i could tell he felt annoyed with himself.
This is what had me vexed…
so a week later,
i hit up the said model and asked if i can feature him on the foxhole.
since i have a lot of eyes on my platform,
it could be good for his brand.
i wasn’t gonna charge him and definitely didn’t need his penis pictures.
instead of building a relationship with me,
you decided to become casper the friendly-fuckin-ghost.
i need black folks to do better when it comes to networking and allies.
this is why some of these folks get played.
lowkey: i found it interesting in one of his screenshots,
the photographer said:
“Watch out for these gay men.
They will try to exploit you.”
