"Decided i’m never beating the bimbo allegations so why not lean in, you know?" the model wrote on Instagram
Emily Ratajkowski is taking control of the narrative some project on her.
On Tuesday, the model, author and podcast host, 32, took to Instagram to share a carousal of photos of herself wearing a revealing black-ribbed halter dress. She paired the outfit with a nude lip and her natural wavy hairstyle. But it was her caption that made the real statement.
"decided i’m never beating the bimbo allegations so why not lean in, you know?"
While Ratajkowski didn't elaborate or call out anyone specifically, fans quickly responded to back up the former actress in the comments. "Let them think whatever they want gf. Has everything to do with them & nothing to do with you 😉❤️🔥," one user says.
"Post all the pics you want kiddo - those who mind don’t matter. And you know the rest :)" another person writes.
Someone else comments: "I hear ya. If they're gonna talk, give em something to talk about!"
Back in December 2017, on a live episode of Good Morning Britain, media personality Piers Morgan, called Ratajkowski a “global bimbo.”
Only a few before Morgan criticized Ratajkowski for posting photos from a shoot she did with Love Magazine in lingerie. "This is Emily Ratajkowski 'promoting feminism'. Somewhere, Emmeline Pankhurst just vomited," his message on X said.
Ratajkowski replied later that day: "Lol never said my love video was a feminist statement. But now it’s worth saying that telling women what to do with their bodies & sexuality is actually just classic sexism. I can have opinions about feminism & also do sexy photo shoots k thanks."
Ratajkowski, who famously starred in Robin Thicke's 2013 "Blurred Lines" music video, had her big-screen acting debut in the 2014 David Fincher movie Gone Girl as Andie, the college-student mistress of Ben Affleck's Nick Dunne. After that she was in We Are Your Friends (2015) and I Feel Pretty (2018), but she's mostly quit acting since 2019.
"I didn't feel like, 'Oh, I'm an artist performing and this is my outlet.' I felt like a piece of meat who people were judging, saying, 'Does she have anything else other than her [breasts]?' " Ratajkowski said of her Hollywood career.
Her most recent audition, the outlet reported, was for last year's Triangle of Sadness, which was nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars. The part she tried out for ultimately went to late model Charlbi Dean.

She told the outlet that after Gone Girl, she was hoping to find roles that showed she could be a "serious actress with longevity." By 2020, though, she fired her agent, commercial rep and manager, according to the L.A. Times.
"I didn't trust them. I was like, 'I can handle receiving phone calls. I'm gonna make these decisions. None of you have my best interest at heart. And you all hate women,' " said Ratajkowski at the time.
