Rihanna has responded to the shade Victoria’s Secret threw her way last week with an equally shady response.
“Everybody keeps talking about Rihanna’s show,” VS executive Ed Razek told Vogue ahead of the lingerie brand’s annual fashion show last week. “If we had done Rihanna’s show, we would be accused of pandering without question.”
Continued Razek, 70: “By the way, we’ve had three pregnant models walk the show. Everybody had the conversation about Savage [x Fenty] having the pregnant model in the show. We watch this, we’re amused by it, but we don’t milk it. And all of these things that they’ve ‘invented,’ we have done and continue to do.”
While Rihanna has yet to respond directly to Razek’s statements, her recent social media activity makes her point of view on the matter crystal clear.
Over the weekend, a Rihanna fan Instagrammed a screenshot of a tweet by model and blogger Louise O’Reilly that both called out the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show’s lack of diversity and praised Savage x Fenty’s inclusive branding and casting practices.
Rihanna herself liked the post, as captured by Buzzfeed.
