People are not happy with the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Apparently, they want the show to include transgender and plus-sized models and feel the show is not inclusive enough.
According to The Daily Wire:
Victoria’s Secret is being accused of “normalizing discrimination” for their lack of transgender and plus-size models on their runways.
“Victoria’s Secret Doesn’t Want Plus-Size or Trans Women Walking the Runway,” a Jezebel headline screamed on Friday.
“Since the brand’s first runway show at the Plaza Hotel in New York City in August 1995, not a single plus-size or out transgender or gender nonconforming person has walked in the show’s 23-year history,” complained Mic.com on Monday, adding, “Victoria’s Secret discriminates against plus-size, transgender and gender nonconforming people.”
The outrage over the lack of fat and transgender representation in Victoria’s Secret lingerie was sparked by comments made by Ed Razek, L. Brands’ chief marketing officer, to Vogue. L. Brand is the parent company of Victoria’s Secret.
The chief marketing officer went on to say that people have no interest in seeing the plus-sized model on a runway show. He cited that in 2000 they tried a televised plus-sized fashion show and no one had an interest in it. Noting that they still don’t.
