The brand’s chief marketing officer Ed Razek came under fire earlier in November during an interview with Vogue where he said:
“So it’s like, why don’t you do 50? Why don’t you do 60? Why don’t you do 24? It’s like, why doesn’t your show do this? Shouldn’t you have transsexuals in the show? No. No, I don’t think we should. Well, why not? Because the show is a fantasy. It’s a 42-minute entertainment special. That’s what it is.”
“We’re their first love. And Victoria’s Secret has been women’s first love from the beginning.”
Many people did not like what Razek said in the interview. As a result, people expressed outrage online that prompted Victoria’s Secret to offer an apology statement.
