Edias Razek, Chief Marketing Officer of Victoria's Secret, apologizes for comments on transgender models

The Chief Marketing Officer of Victoria's Secret has apologized for his comments on transgender models.

Ed Razek, who belongs to the casting team, told Vogue magazine that the annual shows are "a fantasy" and "should not include transsexuals."

He has now apologized for his remarks and said they are "insensitive".

Asked by Vogue if the current Instagram generation of Victoria's Secret was looking for "something new," Mr. Razek said, "Should not you have transsexuals on the show? No, I do not think we should.

"Well, why not, because the show is a fantasy, it's a 42-minute entertainment offer, that's it."

When discussing whether Victoria's Secret had been thinking about using transgender and plus-size models and placing more emphasis on diversity, Razek said, "If you're wondering if we included a transgender model in the show or have a plus point – we have size model in the show. "
