Victoria's Secret Show Angers Native Americans
 
When do we get to be done with having to hear this crap? It's hot bitches in undergarments FFS

The Victoria’s Secret might have meant to tease and titillate. It ended up sparking outrage among Native Americans for having model Karlie Kloss walk out wearing a headdress that flowed to the ground.

Photos of the Wednesday night fashion show were posted online and comments, mainly from the Native American community, followed.

In an article posted on lastrealindians.com , Ruth Hopkins wrote that the costume added to the hyper-sexualization of Native women. LMAO yea right She also said the war bonnet is considered, among her Sioux tribe, an honor worn only by someone who displayed valor in battle.

“We’re a people, not a trend,” she wrote. “We don’t wear costumes. We dress in regalia, and every single piece means something special.”

The Victoria’s Secret Facebook page has been peppered with outraged comments. Linda Kewanimptewa of Prescott posted that she was boycotting the store. oh please, don't stop bringing in your beads to trade. Victoria's Secret will go out of business without people like you. “I loved your stores so much,” she wrote, “but thanks for disrespecting my culture!”

A petition on change.org has asked the lingerie company to apologize. The Victoria’s Secret fashion show is scheduled to air on CBS on Dec. 4.

In September, the handbag and clothing company Paul Frank held a pow-wow-themed fashion show that featured plastic tomahawks. It apologized after complaints from the Native American community.

Earlier this month, No Doubt premiered a video for its new song, “Looking Hot.” It had singer Gwen Stefani wearing a headband and beaded dress and battling band members dressed as black hat-wearing cowboys. The band pulled the video down on Monday after receiving complaints from F.A.I.R. Media, which promotes accurate representations of indigenous people. Idiots. As if Gwen didn't make that look better than it ever has and do your image a favor

Good god, people are just looking for things to offend them now days. That lady can stick it up her ass and STFU.

I agree that this is offensive and she should remove the outfit immediately. On stage. Live.

Ugh. Big chief Rainman see'um far.

But before she removes the offensive outfit (or after - I'm fine with that), she should do battle with the cowgirl. Perhaps in an Old West-style oil wrestling pit.

Don't worry, Air Force One is already in the air to deliver a personal apology.

Rain Man 11-12-2012 03:00 PM

And who doesn't like a circus? Or an homage to the Revolutionary War? I'm not exactly sure what this is, but it makes me proud to be an American.

The National Association of Cotton Candy Dealers objects to the hypersexualization of cotton candy puffs.

What's the ratio of women complaining vs. men?
