Victoria's Secret has apologized for putting a Native American-style headdress on a model for its annual fashion show, after the outfit was criticized as a display of ignorance toward tribal culture and history.

The company responded to the complaints over the weekend by saying it was sorry to have upset anyone and that it wouldn't include the outfit in the show's television broadcast next month, or in any marketing materials.

Just like Fauxahauntus, Hollywierd’s idea of an Indian headdress.
The sad thing is that the “Native Americans” don’t even know the difference. Perhaps we should have protests over the Medical Profession choosing to use Latin derivatives.

Not guilty, although VC is increasingly using anorexic models. They used to be among the few that used "healthy" girls.

I love movies where disciplined men mow down violent savages. It is a metaphor for the fight of order and chaos in our minds and culture.

I think I have a CD of Zulu around here somewhere.....

Everyone used to love it back in the day when Cher donned the headdress.
