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

That’s because they want to stay in business. 🤔 https://t.co/b92StTaqkr

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.
