Vanity Fair journalist Rich Cohen is under fire for his incredibly offensive cover story on Margot Robbie.
Not only did the writer pen a rather sexist profile of the Australian actress, he also gave an embarrassingly ignorant view of Robbie’s home country.
According to the Vanity Fair contributing editor, Robbie "can be sexy and composed even while naked but only in character."
“She is 26 and beautiful, not in that otherworldly, catwalk way but in a minor knock-around key, a blue mood, a slow dance,” Cohen writes. “She is blonde but dark at the roots. She is tall but only with the help of certain shoes."

And as if this part wasn't offensive enough, here's how he described Australia:
“Australia is America 50 years ago, sunny and slow, a throwback, which is why you go there for throwback people....They still live and die with the plot turns of soap operas in Melbourne and Perth, still dwell in a single mass market in Adelaide and Sydney."
"In the morning, they watch Australia’s Today Show. In other words, it’s just like America, only different.”
Despite Robbie expressing her dislike for "perpetuating Australian stereotypes" during the interview, Cohen describes Australia as "a place where dingos will apparently eat your baby."
The piece has, naturally, drawn criticism from many Australians and the article has sparked a furious backlash, with hundreds taking to Twitter to vent their frustration.
