A Victoria's Secret Exec Is Under Fire For "Misogyny, Bullying, And Harassment"

Hadid has yet to comment, but a year ago, she took a swipe at Victoria's Secret, saying she "never felt powerful" modeling lingerie until Rihanna's Fenty runway NYFW show.

Razek replied to the Times reporting in an email reading, "The accusations in this reporting are categorically untrue, misconstrued or taken out of context".

Victoria's Secret corporate employees and models were reportedly subjected to verbal and physical harassment from former Victoria's Secret CMO Ed Razek throughout his tenure, the NYT reports.


Wexner's representative declined comment to the ABC. Several witnesses also alleged instances in which Razek publicly demeaned and shamed women, and retaliated professionally against those who dared file complaints about his conduct with human resources.

Following the report, Razek has released a statement denying all allegations.

'I've been fortunate to work with countless, world-class models and gifted professionals and take great pride in the mutual respect we have for each other, ' Razek continued, declining to comment on a detailed list of allegations. He urged others to sit on his lap. "For me, that was the first time on a runway that I felt really sexy". "This abuse was just laughed off and accepted as normal".


He told the 5-foot-10, 140-pound PR staffer that she needed to lay off the pasta and bread as dozens of coworkers looked on, she said.

The company has been embroiled in scandal, and a year ago canceled its annual fashion show that had aired on network TV for decades. "And anyone who tried to do anything about it wasn't just ignored". The company itself is not in terribly good shape for a number of reasons - to say the least. Our thoughts are with every single person that experienced this behavior at the hands of L Brands execs, and we commend them for coming forward to share their stories.
