Victoria's Secret apologizes, removes Native American headdress from fashion show broadcast
Many organizations, including Zap2it, questioned the wisdom of this potentially offensive outfit and Victoria's Secret has issued an official apology via their Facebook page:
"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."
Meanwhile, Kloss apologized on her own via Twitter:
I am deeply sorry if what I wore during the VS Show offended anyone. I support VS's decision to remove the outfit from the broadcast.-- Karlie Kloss (@karliekloss) November 11, 2012
This year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is scheduled to air Dec. 4 on CBS.
