‘I don’t understand why we continue to blame women for men’s mistakes’: Emily Ratajkowski fires back at Sara Foster and slams criticism of Adam Levine’s alleged mistress as ‘sexism and classic misogyny’
Emily Ratajkowski fired back at Sara Foster after the actress slammed the Instagram influencer who claimed to have had an affair with Adam Levine last year.
After Sara took to TikTok to air her grievances with Sumner Stroh, the model who accused Adam of having an affair with her, Emily slammed the post and argued it was wrong to blame the ‘other woman’.
It comes after Emily’s own four-year marriage to producer Sebastian Bear-McClard, 35, crumbled amid claims he was a ‘serial cheater’.
The model, 31, hit out at criticism of Summer, 23, as ‘sexism and classic misogyny’ and said ‘power dynamic is so skewed’ because Adam, 43, is ‘twice her age’ and slammed his alleged behaviour as ‘predatory and manipulative’.
‘I’m going to try not to go the f**k off right now,’ Emily said after playing a brief clip from Sara’s original video. ‘I just couldn’t disagree more.
‘Sexist and classic misogyny’: Emily Ratajkowski fired back at Sara Foster after the actress slammed the Instagram influencer who claimed to have had an affair with Adam Levine
‘I don’t understand why we continue to blame women for men’s mistakes, especially when you’re talking about 20-something year old women dealing with men in positions of power who are twice their age.
‘The power dynamic is so skewed, it’s ridiculous. Like, it’s predatory, it’s manipulative, I can’t imagine, I do not agree.
‘Also, if you’re the one in the relationship, you’re the one who’s obligated to be loyal. So, the whole other woman, they’re to blame, that’s bad. And it’s literally designed to keep women apart.’
She continued in a second video: ‘This is basically a part two but I think a huge problem in our culture right now is that we just say, “Oh men are monsters, they’re terrible, they’re horrible.”
‘We don’t hold them accountable and then we blame other women, we ask women to adjust their behavior instead of just saying men need to change their behavior. It’s sexism, it’s classic misogyny. Period.’

Without naming Adam or Sumner, Sara addressed the controversy in a scathing video posted to TikTok.
‘Dear men who cheat: you suck. Dear women who cheat with married men: You suck too,’ Sara wrote in the corner of the clip.
‘He’s obviously like a total pig and gross but this woman who chose to make a viral TikTok video claiming – by the way, not even apologizing – but putting it out there for the world to see.
For a pregnant woman to see when she could have just messaged her privately, she claiming like it’s not her fault or something,’ she said.
‘It’s like, we don’t feel sorry for you. You knew this man was married, okay, and you participated. You could have easily ignored the messages. You knew he was married. We do not feel sorry for you.’

‘There’s two things here: Any man looking to engage, married, with another woman, you are a pig,’ she continued.
‘But as women, we need to do better. If a married man is being a pig and like reaching out to you, you hopefully have been raised well enough to be like, “No sorry, you’re married. I can’t engage.”
‘This chick is giving women a very bad name and I think that as women we need to do better. Men are gross, we know that, they’re always gonna be dogs.
‘But like as women, we need to do better and not get wrapped up in this bulls**t. If a man is married, okay? If a man is married, as a woman, it’s gotta be a no go for you.’
Levine, who has been married to supermodel Behati Prinsloo since 2014, was accused Monday by Stroh of having a secret relationship for ‘about a year.’
Taking a stand: ‘So, the whole other woman, they’re to blame, that’s bad. And it’s literally designed to keep women apart,’ Emily said
The singer subsequently admitted he had been ‘inappropriate’ with the young woman, but seemed to suggest that their relationship was not physical.
Levine shared a post addressing the cheating rumors, which emerged just days after his supermodel wife Behati confirmed she was expecting their third child.
‘I used poor judgment in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirtatious manner,’ the musician said.
‘I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period of my life. In certain instances it became inappropriate. I have addressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family.’

He continued: ‘My wife and my family is all I care about in this world. To be this naïve and stupid enough to risk the only thing that truly matters to me was the greatest mistake I could ever make. I will never make it again.
‘I take full responsibility. We will get through it and we will get through it together.’
The statement however, appears to contradict Stroh’s now viral TikTok video where she claimed that she had an ‘affair’ with Levine for ‘about a year’ and included their flirty messages that suggested the two had met in person at least once.
The bombshell revelation sparked a frenzy on social media, with critics branding her a ‘homewrecker’ and accusing the young model of deliberately choosing to get involved with a married man.
Stroh responded to the comments in a second video posted hours later where she expressed her ‘remorse’ for her actions and issued an apology to Levine’s wife.
The social media personality, who had just moved to Los Angeles at the time of their fling, also claimed that she had naively believed Levine and Prinsloo’s marriage was ‘over’ at the time.
‘The most important part that I definitely glossed over was the fact that I was under the impression that their marriage was over,’ she said in a follow-up TikTok video.
‘I believed they were keeping it quiet to avoid the negative press because, as I had said, I was new to LA so I just assumed that with celebrities of the caliber that’s just how it was.

‘And that’s why I feel exploited because he knew I believed everything he said because of my vulnerable position of being new to LA.’
Emily, meanwhile, last month confirmed that she’s a ‘recently single person’ in a TikTok video following her split from husband Sebastian Bear-McClard, 35.
Emily and Sebastian were last pictured together vacationing in Italy on June 19 before she decided to end their four-year marriage in July over him allegedly being a ‘serial cheater.’
The Blurred Lines music video star famously wed Sebastian at a New York City courthouse in February 2018 – just two months after she ended her three-year, live-in relationship with music producer Jeff Magid.
Their split came after another insider told Page Six that Sebastian is a serial cheater, saying: ‘Yeah, he cheated. He’s a serial cheater. It’s gross. He’s a dog.’
