Stasey unleashed a torrent of tweets on Twitter about the incident, uploading a number of accusations and communications to the social media platform.


The editor of The Good Weekend, Ben Naparstek (pictured below), has responded, issuing a statement: “I completely understood and respected Caitlin’s decision not to pursue our shoot, which would have been a classy shoot with a leading American fashion photographer in line with the beautiful artistic imagery she’d published of herself on Herself.Com, which she’d just launched.

“We decided not to pursue the shoot when her agent offered us access to existing portraits instead. But with the Herself.Com peg no longer as strong, we decided to delay the profile until later in the year so it could be tied to the new seasons of her series Please Like Me and Reign.”

Stasey has launched a site called herself.com, empowering women to be comfortable with their body and their flaws. It garnered a monstrous amount of coverage.

Herself.com has been contacted for comment and Stasey has been tweeted. B&T had not heard back at the time of publication.
