The thing is: It's not that the company is just behind the times when it comes to including body diversity on the runway, it just has no intention of changing or evolving as a brand.

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.

"If you’re asking if we’ve considered putting a transgender model in the show or looked at putting a plus-size model in the show, we have," he said. But, he added, "We market to who we sell to, and we don’t market to the whole world."

So, basically VS only markets to one type of woman. Got it.

A week after he made those comments, the company's CEO, Jan Singer stepped down from her position after just two years in the role.

People are speculating about her reasons for stepping down. Some say she's taking the fall for Razek after his controversial comments.

Others think it's due to the declining sales.

Some are even accusing her of running the company into the ground. Yikes!

One thing is for sure, if Victoria's Secret doesn't drop Razek and get with the times, it'll lose its market share to companies that actually do have everyday women's interests in mind (i.e., Aerie, Savage X Fenty, ThirdLove).
