It's no secret that mega lingerie brand Victoria's Secret is both transphobic and fatphobic. In November, the clothing powerhouse's chief marketing officer, Ed Razek, made comments that proved exactly that. "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.
But that wasn't all — he then continued on, saying that there was no interest in watching plus-size women either. "We attempted to do a television special for plus-sizes [in 2000]. No one had any interest in it, still don’t," he disgustingly remarked.
Well, it looks like those words are coming back to bite yet again, because a recent announcement from one of the brand's most loyal models insists that this year's highly anticipated Victoria's Secret Fashion Show has been canceled — but no one's really protesting the idea.
Every year, men and women alike eagerly await the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
The lingerie fashion showcase is basically one of the most watched television events of the year. Dozens of scantily clad, tall, thin, and cisgender models take the stage with A-list musical acts every single year. However, in the past few years, the brand's immense controversy has drastically affected its reputation, sales, and TV ratings. In fact, last year's runway show delivered the lowest ratings the brand had ever seen.
