Emily Ratajkowski blocked Celeste Barber on Instagram after the Aussie comedian mocked her

Celeste Barber has revealed how a joke about Emily Ratajkowski went down like a lead balloon.

The Australian comedian, who is most well-known for poking fun at celebrity photoshoots, recreated an image last year that was posted by the supermodel.

The original video shows Ratajkowski posing topless while leaning on a wall with sultry lighting.

Not long after, the Aussie posted a parody clip of the shoot with the caption: “We are sick of you objectifying our bodies! Also, here’s my a**.”

However, the comedian was instantly called out for insinuating women were responsible for their own objectification.

One user wrote: “I didn’t realise until recently when it was pointed out by a colleague that most of your comedy is punching down on young, attractive women who use social media to promote their work and themselves. It’s not funny anymore, when you look at it this way.”

Another said: “So you're [your] response to someone who's been open about being sexually assaulted is ‘you asked for it’. Nice. Really cool and not at all misogynistic.”

A third person commented: “It’s called consent you f**king almond.”

I think almond is my new favourite insult.

However, Twitter users weren’t the only ones seemingly offended by the joke, as Barber revealed Ratajkowski blocked her on Instagram following the post.

While appearing on Nova’s Fitzy and Wippa, the radio duo asked Barber: “Have you had feedback from Ratajkowski?”

To which Barber replied: “I don’t think Emily is a fan.

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

“If Cindy Crawford’s okay with it, I’m okay with it. Thanks to the greatest supermodel in the world, people are allowed not to like it.”

She continued: “I actually get inundated with fancy people sending me photos for me to parody.”

The comedian also opened up about the controversy to WHO, claiming that she intends to purely critique 'body-shaming' industries.

She said: “People who’ve followed me for years know what I do. I poke fun at the multibillion-dollar fashion and beauty industries, and celebrity culture, which makes money out of body-shaming women.

“Nothing has changed my end, in terms of who I post about or what I say. Sometimes people will say one of my posts is the greatest thing they’ve ever seen and sometimes they don’t and that’s fine. I’m alright with ruffling feathers, I really am.”
