For some people, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is like the Grammys. For others, like me, it’s just another day and I don’t understand the hype, but regardless, it’s a big deal.
This year is no different with performances from Halsey, Kelsea Ballerini, the Chainsmokers, Shawn Mendes, and more!
The fashion show was filmed several weeks ago and following the filming, the Chief Marketing Officer for Victoria Secret said,
“If you’re asking if we’ve considered putting a transgender model in the show or looked at putting a plus-size model in the show, we have.”
He went on further to say that he didn’t think they’d include models from either category, stating
“Why not? Because the show is a fantasy. It’s a 42-minute entertainment special. That’s what it is.”
His statements obviously didn’t go over well with fans of the show and Halsey has since made a statement saying,
“I have no tolerance for a lack of inclusivity. Especially not one motivated by stereotype”.
