Halsey crit­i­cizes Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret exec’s trans­pho­bic com­ments about fash­ion show

StarMetro Vancouver - - THE KIT -

Fol­low­ing her per­for­mance at the Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret Fash­ion Show, which aired Sun­day night, Halsey is mak­ing it clear that she does not agree with the anti-trans com­ments made by the com­pany’s chief mar­ket­ing of­fi­cer, Ed Razek.

In a let­ter to In­sta­gram, the singer, who iden­ti­fies as bi­sex­ual, wrote that it had been a dream of hers to ap­pear in the show.

Yet, her per­for­mance was filmed be­fore Razek gave a con­tro­ver­sial in­ter­view to Vogue, say­ing he didn’t think the show should in­clude “trans­sex­u­als” be­cause “the show is a fan­tasy.”

Halsey said she did not agree with the com­ments, and di­rected view­ers to check out GLSEN, an or­ga­ni­za­tion that pro­tects LGBTQ youth.
