CBS, which is set to air the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in December, is reporting that a Native American-themed outfit featured at the show will be pulled from the broadcast, and Victoria’s Secret has issued an apology for any offense caused.
Model Karlie Kloss, who wore a feathered headdress and turquoise jewelry as part of a holiday-themed “Calendar Girls” segment of the show, issued her own apology via Twitter.
A post on the blog Native Appropriations called for Victoria’s Secret to pull the segment from the show: “This isn’t ‘fun,’ this isn’t a ‘fantasy’ character. This is about our cultures, our bodies, and our lives. Native people demand and deserve far more respect than this.”
Some applauded Victoria’s Secret for the move.
Others wonder if they’re missing something.
Some people really are missing something.
