Emily Ratajkowski has stated that more people need to hold men accountable for cheating while in a relationship, rather than attacking the woman.

The 31-year-old model and actor's comments come after 90210 star Sara Foster shared a TikTok video saying that women who cheat on married men "suck".

Although neither woman ever mentioned Adam Levine by name, both Foster and Ratajkowski's comments come after the 43-year-old Maroon 5 singer has been accused of having an affair by 23-year-old model Sumner Stroh.

Levine has been married to his wife Behati Prinsloo for eight years and they are currently expecting their third child.

In response to the celeb news, Foster decided to share her two cents, saying in a recent TikTok video: "Seen a lot of people on TikTok talking about the situation with the singer who cheated on the wife - not gonna say the name - but, y'know, first of all, I hate cheaters. My family was broken up when I was a child over a cheating situation."

Foster then states: "So, he's obviously, like, a total pig and, like, gross.

"But this woman who chose to make a viral TikTok video claiming, like - 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.

"Claiming, like, it's not her fault or something? We don't feel sorry for you. You knew this man was married, okay? And you participated. You could have easily ignored the messages."

After once again slamming men who opt to cheat on their partners, Foster states: "But, as women, we need to do better.

"If a married man is being a pig and 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."

Evidently perturbed by Foster's comments, Ratajkowski replied by stitching a video with the 90210 star in a now-deleted TikTok video.

"I'm going to try not to go the f**k off right now," the model said. "I just couldn't disagree more.

"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 Cruise star added: "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," Ratajkowski added.

In a second video responding to Foster, Ratajkowski continued: "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."

Ratajkowski doubled-down on her beliefs in the post's caption, writing: "Maybe we just hold men accountable instead of just accepting them as terrible, asking them to do 0 work, and then blaming other women?"

The comments come as Sumner Stroh claimed in a TikTok video: "I was having an affair with a man who's married to a Victoria's Secret model."

"At the time, I was young, I was naive, and, I mean, quite frankly, I feel exploited. I wasn’t in ‘the scene’ like I am now, so I was definitely very easily manipulated," she added, before sharing screenshots of flirty messages allegedly sent by the 'Moves Like Jagger' singer.

Watch Stroh's initial video below:

Levine has since responded to the allegations, by sharing a written statement in his Instagram Stories.

"A lot is being said about me right now and I want to clear the air," he writes. "I used poor judgement in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirtatious manner. I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period in my life."

Levine added that "in certain instances" his behavior "became inappropriate", but that he has "addressed that" and "taken proactive steps to remedy this with [his] family".

The 'Sugar' singer continued: "My wife and my family is all I care about in this world. To be this naive 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."
