Noted awful man Ed Razek has resigned from Victoria's Secret as chief marketing officer, reported the Wall Street Journal. Razek has worked for L Brands (formerly Limited Brands, which owns Victoria's Secret) since 1983 —exactly the year that Victoria's Secret's aesthetic is stuck in. His resignation comes amid declining sales, boycotts from consumers and celebrities, allegations of cultural appropriation, and a deeply horrifying connection with alleged sexual abuser Jeffrey Epstein.
"I’m always asking myself: If we do that, what is the reason we did it? Why did we include that person? And did we include them to shut up a reporter? Did we include them because it was the right thing to do or because it was the politically correct thing to do?...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...."
Even the company's investors couldn't stand this guy.
Don't let the door hit you on the way out, Razek.
In an internal memo sent to company employees, Razek wrote that "With the exception of Les [Wexner], I’ve been with L Brands longer than anyone. But all good things must and do, inevitably, come to an end," reported the WSJ.
