Victoria’s Secret has released an apology after complaints were made about a Native American-style headdress worn by a model at their latest fashion show. According to the New York Post, a representative from Navajo Nation described the outfit as “spitting on our culture.”
They have said that they “sincerely apologize” and that they “absolutely had no intention to offend anyone," and have also said that they won’t include the headdress, worn by Karlie Kloss, in the upcoming television broadcast of the show or any related marketing.
Michelle Spotted Elk, a California woman of mixed descent whose husband is of the Lakota tribe, explained that “"When you see a Lakota chief wearing a full headdress, you know that he was a very honorable man. He was a leader. He did a lot of honorable things for his people." Do you think that Victoria’s Secret was being insensitive?
