Victoria's Secret apologize for model wearing Indian headdress





Victoria’s Secret apologized for putting model Karlie Kloss in an "Indian" headdress during its annual fashion show last week.

Images of Kloss in the headdress generated immediate controversy among American Indians online. The company responded by saying it will not include the images in any of its campaigns.

"We are sorry that the Native American headdress replica used in our recent fashion show has upset individuals," the company said. "We sincerely apologise as we absolutely had no intention to offend anyone. Out of respect, we will not be including the outfit in any broadcast, marketing materials nor in any other way."
