Well, it’s finally come to this. Victoria’s Secret has hit rock bottom with plummeting sales, and now the struggling brand is ready to ditch the woke, plus-size, and downright homely models to get back to what everyone wants to see: glamorous women scantily clad. This about-face comes at a steep cost and reminds us of Bud Light’s mistake of ignoring their loyal customer base—those men and women who loved the sultry “fantasy” aspect of the Victoria’s Secret brand. Instead, they injected a dose of harsh reality, complete with all its imperfections, like tummy rolls, back fat, and double chins.
Ironically, the genius behind the success of Victoria’s Secret was none other than Jeffrey Epstein’s sole benefactor, Les Wexner. When Les left, the company went woke and collapsed. So, what triggered this dramatic about-face and return to their sultry roots? Well, the final nail in the coffin for Victoria’s Secret was none other than angry, man-hating lesbian Megan Rapinoe, who also managed to sour people on Subway sandwiches during her brief stint as their spokesMAN.
Victoria’s Secret is returning to its hyper-sexualized roots after attempting to rebrand as a more inclusive retailer, reports state.
The lingerie empire has seen a drop in sales since overhauling its image by replacing its traditional ‘Angel’ supermodels with more diverse models including soccer player Megan Rapinoe and transgender model Valentina Sampaio.
Business of Fashion reporter Cathleen Chen noted that the move gained ‘favorable reviews online but never translated into sales.’
There is absolutely nothing—let me emphasize, NOTHING—”sexy” about Megan Rapinoe, who perpetually wears a scowl on her little puckered face. The Daily Mail story continues:
The brand was plunged into controversy in 2020 when an investigation by the New York Times alleged a ‘culture of misogyny, bullying and harassment’ at the company.
Les Wexner, the chief executive of Victoria’s Secret’s then-parent company L Brands was also outed for his ties to disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.
Wexner was accused of turning a blind eye to sexual harassment allegations at the firm.
In 2021 Rapinoe said the old marketing sent out a ‘really harmful message,’ adding its marketing was ‘patriarchal, sexist, viewing not just what it meant to be sexy but what the clothes were trying to accomplish through a male lens and through what men desired.’
Victoria’s Secret has finally uncovered its own secret: ugly, irate women aren’t the key to selling sultry lingerie. Gee, who knew? The struggling brand now faces the uphill battle of winning back customers who’ve had enough. Americans are increasingly fed up with being lectured about politics and social issues by self-righteous jerks like Megan Rapinoe and Dylan Mulvaney. Once they decide to walk away, it’s typically for keeps. Victoria has made a big mess.
