Emily Ratajkowski has slammed the new Marilyn Monroe biopic Blonde for its supposedly "fetishizing" take on female pain.

Taking to her TikTok account, where she has nearly 2 million followers, she took aim at the new Netflix release, while admitting she has not actually seen the film starring Ana De Armas as the iconic blonde bombshell.

The 31-year-old model captioned the video: "So done with the fetishization of female pain and suffering. B***h Era 2022."

In it, she says: “So, I’ve been hearing a lot about this Marilyn Monroe movie Blonde, which I haven’t seen yet, but I’m not surprised to hear that it’s yet another movie fetishizing female pain, even in death.

“We love to fetishize female pain – look at Amy Winehouse, look at Britney Spears, look at the way we obsess over [Princess] Diana’s death. The way we obsess over dead girls and serial killers – watch any CSI episode and it’s like this crazy fetishization of female pain and death.”

The My Body author went on to say that "as women — I mean, I can say for myself for sure — but I’ve learned how to fetishize my own pain and my own hurt in my life so that it feels like something that can be tended to that's kind of sexy."

Ratajkowski added: “I think we do that in many, many different ways. But I want that to change.

Check out what she has to say below:

“So I have a proposal. I think we all need to be a little more pissed off,” the Gone Girl  actress said. “2022, baby, is my b***h era. I think we should all be in our b***h era.”

Ratajkowski said she already knows she will be “be p****d off” when she watches the movie, referring to this feeling as “nothing new.”

“I’m just gonna get angry,” she concluded.

Ratajkowski isn't the only celeb to get up in arms about the movie, which is based on Joyce Carol Oates’ semi-fictional biography of the same name.

Courtney Stodden told Page Six that they will be boycotting it.

“I will not be watching,” the 28-year-old media personality said on Thursday. “As somebody who understands what it feels like to be exploited in a sexual way and then have people turn you into a joke when you are not a joke, I think diving into that is a little disrespectful.”
