Is Karlie Kloss Taking It Too Far? See the Apology by Victoria’s Secret (Video)
Taking into consideration of race issues, do you think the super famous model for Victoria’s Secret lingerie, Karlie Kloss went too far with the revealing Native American outfit she wore on the runway at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show?
Some do and some don’t. See how the story unfolded when it made big fashion headlines.
Do you believe it’s right to defame or ridicule any religion or culture? Me either!
There’s no doubt the skimpy outfit Karlie is wearing in the picture is sexy, but there are lines one should consider not crossing when it causes so much anger from the people affected.
Here is a portion of how the story goes ..
“Outrage spread quickly through the Native American community. (To add insult to injury, November is Native American Heritage Month). Sasha Houston Brown, a member of the Santee Sioux tribe of Nebraska, wrote on Indian Country:
Despite what dominant society and mainstream media say, Native culture is a vibrant and living culture.
We are not a relic of the past, a theme or a trend, we are not a style or costume, we are not mascots, noble savages or romantic fictional entities. We are human beings and despite all odds, we have survived.
There are hundreds of other similar comments from Native Americans and non-Natives alike and Victoria’s Secret responded on Saturday with the following statement via their Facebook and Twitter:
We are sorry that the Native American headdress replica used in our recent fashion show has upset individuals. We sincerely apologize as we absolutely had no intention to offend anyone. Out of respect, we will not be including the outfit in any broadcast, marketing materials nor in any other way.
Even Karlie Kloss took to Twitter to express her regret …”
As a model or agent, I would love to hear your view on this subject of using cultures for money. (Please be civil).
The video states that fashion modeling news is buzzing – apology by Victoria’s Secret for Karlie Kloss and her Native American head wear.
