The exhibition, which broadcast on Sunday, filmed last month in New York City.
Comments from Ed Razek, Marketing Manager for Victoria’s Secrets Parent Company, in a November interview with Vogue triggered controversies.
Razek was asked about competitive brands “that puts tight women in their ads” and “women in size 40.” Razek replied: “If you ask if we have considered putting a transgender model in the show or looking to add a plus size model to the show, we have.”
But that was what he continued to say. It was not good at anyone.
“Do not you have transsexuals in the exhibition? No, I do not think we should,” said Razek. “Yes, why not? Because the show is a fantasy. It’s a 42-minute entertainment perspective. That’s what it is.”
The term “transsexuals” is considered to be dated and offensive to many in the LGBTQ community. [1

“I have adored Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show since I was young,” she wrote in a note where it was published. “This year’s performance together with other great artists and hard working models / friends would be the best night of my year. But after I filmed the performance, some comments were made about the show that I simply can not ignore.”  Halsey, bisexual, added: “As a member of the LGBTQ + community, I have no tolerance for lack of inclusivity.”
“Not particularly motivated by stereotype,” she wrote. “If you’re on my side because you looked at my results tonight, let me focus your attention on GLSEN: An organization that offers services aimed at protecting LGBTQ + young people. And taking into account the young people addressed to these comments in a world where they have been made to feel “others” I have made a significant donation to their glory. “
” If you are a transperson who reads this and these comments have made you feel alienated or invalid, kindly, you have allied “,” The “Without Me” singer added.
“We are in solidarity,” wrote Halsey. “And complete and total acceptance is the only” imagination “that I support.”
