Critics are calling "foul" after Victoria's Secret showcased its "Sexy Little Geisha" outfit -- complete with a obi-style belt, chopsticks for your hair and a paper fan -- in the popular shop's lingerie collection called "Go East." Victoria's Secret has since pulled the whole collection. Do you think the lingerie item is racist? Or are people making a big deal out of nothing?
Victoria's Secret has quickly pulled an Asian-themed lingerie collection called "Go East" that traded in sexualized, generic pan-Asian ethnic stereotypes. The item people found most offensive? The $98 "Sexy Little Geisha" teddy. The teddy was part of the lingerie giant's "Sexy Little Things" product category -- making it sort of like the "Sexy Little Sergeant" outfit or the "Sexy Little Showgirl" get-up VS also offers, only with overtones of Mickey Rooney in Breakfast at Tiffany's.
