Citizen protest: Artist projects s***hole onto Trump's Washington hotel

IN THE WORLD PAPERS - Monday, January 15: Is the #MeToo movement starting to bear fruit? We look at a prominent French video game developer, photographer Mario Testino and a professor in China who are all facing a backlash for allegations of sexual harassment. In other news, Angela Merkel's proposed new coalition is very Europe-friendly, Brazil looks to its answer to Donald Trump ahead of elections, while the US president faces a citizen protest over his alleged vulgar words about immigrants.

Vogue distances itself from celebrity photographers Mario Testino and Bruce Weber over sexual assault allegations, as E Online reports.

Also, Brazil's far-right presidential candidate has been compared to Donald Trump. The two men certainly rival each other for racist and homophobic comments, as The Guardian reports.

Speaking of Trump, an artist has emblazoned the US president's choice word onto the front of a Trump hotel in Washington. You'll want to see this.
