Navajos to Victoria Secret: “You’re Spitting On Us” [VIDEO]

Thousands of comments were left on Victoria Secret’s Facebook page, after the Native American mockery at the 2012 annual fashion show.

One friend wrote “My way of life is not a fashion statement.” Vicky supporters say the Indian community should “get over it” and be glad VS included them in the show at all. 

 

A headdress like this has spiritual significance and would have to be earned through an act of compassion or bravery in the Native American community. It is not a hat or headband-like accessory! And you’d think if Victoria Secret really wanted to “honor the culture” they would at least hire an Indian Model to rock it!

Speaking on behalf of Navajo Nation, spokesman Erny Zah said:

“We have gone through the atrocities to survive and ensure our way of life continues… Any mockery, whether it’s Halloween, Victoria’s Secret -They are spitting on our culture, and it’s upsetting.”

Now we all remember what happened the last time someone in the black community was spit on right?

But instead of making a viral video about the incident, the Native American community has band together and got the executives at Victoria Secret to apologize for trying to turn this symbol of respect into a retail product and remove that segment of the catwalk from the show.

Do you think Vicky did the right thing by apologizing, is it too little too late, or should Indians just ‘get over it’?
