Victoria's Secret boss apologises for "insensitive" trans and plus-size comments
Victoria's Secret's chief marketing officer has apologised for his "insensitive" remarks about transgender models.
During a recent interview about whether the brand was putting more emphasis on diversity and inclusion, Ed Razek had commented that the annual Victoria's Secret shows are a "fantasy" and therefore should not include trans or plus-size models.
Razek, 70, who was part of the casting team, admitted that he had "considered" putting transgender and plus-sized models on the catwalk, but conceded that that company "did not market to the whole world".
"Does the brand think about diversity? Yes. Do we offer larger sizes? Yes... Shouldn't you have transsexuals in the show? No. No, I don't think we should," he toldVogue.
"The show is a fantasy. It's a 42-minute entertainment special. That's what it is. It is the only one of its kind in the world."
An 80 year old man owns the company and a 70 year old man runs it. And their archaic perspectives - on women, on gender, on plus size folks, on trans folks - are making VS a worse brand by the day.
