Margot Robbie fans are taking Vanity Fair writer Rich Cohen to task for his cover story on the actress that many are describing as “sexist” and “creepy.”

In particular, people are upset with the way Cohen describes Robbie in the piece. “She can be sexy and composed even while naked but only in character,” he wrote.

People are also none too pleased with how Cohen described Australia. “Australia is America 50 years ago, sunny and slow, a throwback, which is why you go there for throwback people,” he wrote.
