Halsey slams Victoria's Secret Fashion Show over transphobic controversy

"We stand in solidarity, and total acceptance is the only 'fantasy" I support...' "Well, why not? Because the show is a fantasy", Razek said.

Singer Halsey performed at Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Holiday Special, but she's called out the company on Instagram.

"I have adored the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show since I was young".

Prefacing by saying the high-profile gig was "supposed to be the best night of my year", the singer then proceeded to distance herself from the event by blasting "comments" made about the show and its "lack of inclusivity". However, after I filmed that performance, some comments were made regarding the show that I simply can't ignore, ' she wrote. Especially not one motivated by stereotype.

One exceptional cameo? Kris Jenner as Regina George's mom from Mean Girls , complete with pale pink velour tracksuit and handycam. With 70 million views and counting, it was the most-viewed video used YouTube's Premiere scheduling feature, reports Variety .

As a self-identified bisexual, Razek's insensitive remarks didn't sit well with the musician - nor a score of others - so she made a decision to mitigate his stiff sentiments with a reassuring letter.

To those slamming the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show for hiring exclusively super-skinny, cisgender models, veteran Angel Behati Prinsloo would like to remind you: It's just a show.

"As a trans guy and longtime fan, this statement means a lot to me", one commenter wrote.

Some context: Last month, after the special was taped, Vogue published an interview with the lingerie brand's "chief architects" Ed Razek and Monica Mitro, where they were asked if a transgender model will ever appear in the show.

He added that the brand has had three pregnant models walk the runway and "we've donated more than 1 million hours of associates' time, hundreds of millions of dollars to women's causes. Many of them work out at the same gyms; they have complex routines". But it was never about gender. "And with respect to those youth targeted by these comments in a world where they have been made to feel 'other, ' I have made a sizeable donation in their honor". I think it's a show. No, I don't think we should.

"But people also need to understand that it's just a show". It's cool to talk about it and great to open up a conversation and so much good has happened.
