Continuing her crusade against Razek, Zak further describes Victoria's Secret's ignorance, noting how obviously they market towards men selling a male fantasy to women” and the complete disregard for the reality we live in: the reality where women go to work, breastfeed their children, play sports, care for ailing parents, and serve their country” and aren't limited by archaic ideas of femininity.
Avid Victoria's Secret enthusiasts and critics alike have voiced their disappointment, one of the most angered being ThirdLove co-founder and co-CEO Heidi Zak, who took a full page ad in the New York Times to pen an open letter to the lingerie brand.
