This important controversy has been brewing for a few days, ever since an interview in Vogue went public and marketing guy Ed Razek went on record saying that Victoria’s Secret should have — but hasn’t — put a transgender or plus-size model in the brand’s fashion show, ever.
Now Mic is on it:

We’ve reached the point where I literally can’t tell if something is satire or not

This is madness. If it was my business, I wouldn't either. Females make up the largest stake along with men buying for their partners. This tiny group speaks to nobody in their sales demographic. What a waste of time. I can never get back my time wasted reading this drivel.

Don’t like the company? Go somewhere else. They aren’t there to please a single individual. It’s their company and they do as they please.

Maybe because the consumers don’t wanna see that shit? https://t.co/P8dOSDlt2a

VS has never made a product for men or transgender women. The left doesn’t have the right to force a company to make a product for them or include them, sorry.

Men don't want to see unattractive women and other men modeling women's lingerie.

If “everyone is beautiful” then how is modeling even a job? I mean couldn’t we all do it since we all look beautiful and then why pay people to maintain their physical beauty if all physical shapes and sizes are beautiful? Hmmm ??? https://t.co/JFWFRXULPP

As a small, semi-athletic man, I get it. The @NFL doesn’t want me as a part of their brand either. How dare a corporation have a successful vision for themselves and follow through with that.
