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.

Rashan Gary will not play with in Peach Bowl vs. Florida
The Gators will make their 44th bowl appearance (22-21 overall record) and 18th New Year's Six appearance on December 29. Defensive end Rashan Gary will not play for MI in the Peach Bowl, according to coach Jim Harbaugh.

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.

Arjen Robben confirms 2018/19 is his last season at Bayern Munich
The 34-year-old has been a key player for the Bundesliga side since he joined the club from Real Madrid in 2009. Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben has confirmed that the current 2018/19 season is to be his last at the club.

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.
