The CEO of Victoria’s Secret has decided to step down following the controversial statements made towards plus-size and Trans models by Ed Razek, Chief Marking Officer. Last week during an interview Ed was asked if he’d ever considered putting Trans models and plus-size models in his annual runway show.
He responds, “If you’re asking if we’ve considered putting a transgender model in the show or looked a putting a plus-size model in the show, we have.” He told the fashion magazine he was interviewing with when asked about how other brands are starting to become more inclusive of including trans and plus-size women in their ad campaigns.
He continued, “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.” After two years of operating as CEO of VS’ lingerie division, Jan Singer is walking away from her title. Based on the reports, the company, which is owned by L Brands, has been struggling with sales due to the younger demographic.
The company will give more details on Jan’s departure at a later date. Following the amount of backlash received Ed issued an apology via Victoria Secrets official Twitter Account.
It’s too late for an apology. He said what he said and he can’t take it back!
