Victoria’s Secret’s fashion show receives a significant number of viewers a year. This year, only 3.3 million people watched the show, which is many fewer than last year, at 5 million viewers. He had also stated the show would not allow plus-sized models either.

Halsey, professional singer, posted a message on Instagram saying, “If you are a trans person reading this, and these comments have made you feel alienated or invalidated, please know that you have allies.”
