Celeste Barber returns to Instagram after Emily Ratajkowski drama


Celeste Barber mocks backflipping athlete in hilarious new post – after copping backlash for ‘misogynistic’ parody of Emily Ratajkowski


Celeste Barber created a social media firestorm earlier in the week when she openly mocked model Emily Ratajkowski. 

But the 39-year-old appeared to brush off the upset on Thursday when she returned to Instagram with another one of her beloved parodies. 

In her latest Instagram post, Celeste is seen mocking sportswoman Adelina Lazarova stylishly exiting a luxurious convertible in New York.

In the footage, Adelina is seen backflipping out of the car in heels before rushing off to an appointment. 

Celeste’s take on the clip is slightly less glamorous as she awkwardly struggles to fit out of the window of her parked car, before tottering off across the car park with hilarious sound effects. 

‘The second international borders open,’ Celeste wrote alongside the footage.

It comes after Celeste mocked a post by Emrata seductively leaning against a column in nothing but a pair of g-string bikini bottoms.

Like Emily, Celeste teetered on sky-high stilettos – however she stood on Astroturf instead of the concrete-floored surface of the supermodel’s fashion shoot. 

She captioned the spoof post, ‘We are sick of you objectifying our bodies! Also, here’s my a**.’ 

Ratajkowski, 30, is known for her scantily clad Instagram posts, often advertising her own line of swimwear.

‘The internalised misogyny is overwhelming,’ pointed out another user on Twitter.

‘Misogyny is still misogyny even if you’re the one making fun of women babes xx,’ commented a third.

Another found the caption particularly galling given Ratajkowski had written an essay about her own feelings of objectification in The Cut.

‘Have you read Emily’s piece in The Cut? You should!’ suggested another Twitter user.

Celeste’s funny post comes after she announced her tour of Australia.

The tour, called Fine, Thanks, begins in Newcastle in May 2022 and finishes up in Sydney in June.

‘I’ve been stuck inside staring at a wall for the best part of two years, so trust me when I say I’m ready to pack a suitcase, reacquaint myself with what the inside of a plane looks like and get back on stage,’ the comedian said.

‘Everyone in my house is sick to death of listening to me bang on so it’s time to find some new ears to chew off. Plus mama’s got bills to pay,’ she added.

General tickets are on sale now.
