Row back af­ter trans­gen­der mod­els slur

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - - Worldwide -

Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret chief mar­ket­ing of­fi­cer has apol­o­gised for com­ments he made about trans­gen­der mod­els.

In an in­ter­view with Vogue mag­a­zine, Ed Razek had said the lin­gerie com­pany’s an­nual shows were “a fan­tasy” and should not in­clude them.

Fol­low­ing a back­lash on so­cial me­dia, Razek said his re­marks were “in­sen­si­tive”. He added: “To be clear, we ab­so­lutely would cast a trans­gen­der model in our show.

“We’ve had trans­gen­der mod­els come to cast­ings... And like many oth­ers, they didn’t make it.”
