Aussie comedian Celeste Barber has claimed Emily Ratajkowski blocked her from viewing her Instagram posts after she poked fun at the model’s topless bikini shoot last year.
Celeste claimed that the 31-year-old model apparently failed to see the funny side of her joke and responded to the jibe by blocking the performer on social media.
Known for her hilarious reactions to celebrity online antics, the comedian recreated a video that was uploaded by Emily in which she could be seen posing topless against a wall showing off her stringy bikini bottoms and long legs in strappy stilettos.
Offering up her own version, Celeste followed suit and bared all in her garden modelling her colourful bottoms atop artificial bottle green grass.
Captioning the video which she placed side by side with Emily’s, the funny personality swung for the model’s outspoken stance on women and the objectification of their bodies.
She mocked: ‘We are sick of you objectifying our bodies! Also, here’s my ass.’

Not quite hitting the mark, fans rushed to support the Blurred Lines model with Emily hitting back at the jibe herself too.
Underneath the post the mother-of-one commented: ‘This isn’t it’.
Sharing the news of the social media blocking on Nova’s Fitzy and Wippa’s radio show this week, the conversation was prompted by the duo asking Celeste: ‘Have you had feedback from Ratajkowski?’
To which she replied: ‘I don’t think Emily is a fan.
‘That’s okay, she’s allowed to not love it. But she blocked me.’

At the time Emily’s clap back opened the comment floodgates and hundreds of users arrived to defend the star.
One wrote: ‘Misogyny is still misogyny even if you’re the one making fun of women babes xx [sic]’.

Another posted: ‘em rata getting paid to do a lingerie modelling job that she consents to, vs em rata getting sexually harassed and assaulted at work & speaking out about it— do you not see how these are different??? Yikes [sic]’.
This fan went as far as to slam the comedian’s entire body of work for shamming other women: ‘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.’
Metro.co.uk contacted reps of Emily for comment.
