Victoria Secret....Baaaaad Wooompum

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Victoria's Secret has apologized for putting a Native American-style headdress on a model for its annual fashion show, after the outfit was criticized as a display of ignorance toward tribal culture and history.
The company responded to the complaints over the weekend by saying it was sorry to have upset anyone and that it wouldn't include the outfit in the show's television broadcast next month, or in any marketing materials.
"We sincerely apologize as we absolutely had no intention to offend anyone," the company said.
Headdresses historically are a symbol of respect, worn by Native American war chiefs and warriors. For many Plains tribes, for example, each feather placed on a headdress has significance and had to be earned through an act of compassion or bravery. Some modern-day Native American leaders have been gifted war bonnets in ceremonies accompanied by prayers and songs.

The $12 million show, which had musical performances by Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars, showcased plenty of not-meant-to-be worn ensembles, including circus-themed outfits and a $2.5 million "fantasy bra." Last year the show averaged nearly 10.4 million viewers, up from 8.9 million in 2010, according to Horizon Media. (This year's show was taped on Nov. 7 and is set to air Dec. 4.)

Kloss, who walked the catwalk in a leopard bikini, turquoise beaded jewelry, high-heeled moccasins, and a floor-length feathered headdress (with the word "Thanksgiving" projected on a screen behind her), issued an apology via her Twitter account on Sunday: "I am deeply sorry if what I wore during the VS Show offended anyone. I support VS's decision to remove the outfit from the broadcast."

Man on Man, people are way too sensitive.... next thing you know there will be no more Polish Jokes....... and besides I didn't even notice the headdress until the story pointed it out...
Gone way too far!


  1. Obviously this group has way too much time on their hands if they have to go after Victoria's Secret.

  2. OH! Was she wearing a headdress?
    Who was complaining???? And what about that poor leopard that made her thong? I'm surprised that PETA didn't complain also.
    It's strange to live in a world going insane but interesting to watch from this side of the fence and wondering.... When will they finally say "We've had enough...STOP IT!!!?
    Maybe they really are drugging the citizenry with vapor trails, flouride, espartame or who knows what... Otherwise why do they put up with it?? Of course every once in awhile someone goes over the edge and commits mass murder...I think we will be seeing more and more of that.
