Less than a week after Victoria's Secret Chief Marketing Officer Ed Razek shared his offensive thoughts on why the brand excludes plus-size and transgender models in VS shows, CEO Jan Singer abruptly resigned. According to Bloomberg, she only spent two years with the company. Here's the tea.
Case in point: The brand's 70-year-old Chief Marketing Officer Ed Razek told Vogue that the company has already made strides when it comes to diversity, but it doesn't intend to get too diverse because the show is a "fantasy." And obviously nobody wants to see anyone other than a size 2 blond woman in their fantasy, OK?
"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." he said in the interview.
